Don't live here unless you want bedbugs and rats. Also you will have to deal with rude cheap management people, who do not care at all about the tenants. See More

The management company was quite good and professional: responsive, friendly, helpful. The location is great, right by the 57 bus route and less than a block from the 64 and 66. The B-line is about 5-10 minute walk. The buildings are quiet. See More
