      WARNING, WARNING! I also don't know where to start. Do not rent from this apartment. It's a good location, but management is horrible. The apartment is way over priced for what you get within. The parking is totally inadequate, there's not… See More>

              Cheap rent considering the location. Parking can be a pain. But that is life ANYWERE downtown. Clean, Quiet 99% of the time. Noise around bar closing time only. Irene addressed all my issues in a timely and courteous manner. Sorry I ever moved. I will return ASAP.… See More>

                Terrible living experience.

                I've had a truly nightmarish experience living at this location. The studio apartments offer absolutely no sound insulation whatsoever -- you can hear the adjacent neighbor using the bathroom or simply walking around their living area. The building plumbing is old and atrocious.… See More>

                  I have lived at Chestnut Arms for almost 2 years now. I am looking to move because they are studios and I just had a child but they are great apartments and Irene, the manager, could not be more of a delight to work with.… See More>

                    Seemed to start out ok

                    Where to begin. The heating system is lousy, you have no control over the ancient radiator system which spends all night, every night, loudly clunking away. When I moved in, the furnishings were ancient, the fridge was older than I am and the A/C unit could… See More>

                      The grounds and building at Chestnut Arms COULD be decent housing, however, the slum lords whom own the property have deystroyed all which would have made this property a nice place to live.

                                    A: No, you have to write a check. DO NOT RENT FROM THIS ESTABLISHMENT. Management is horrible. She's an old ----- and the caretaker is also horrible. I lived at Chestnut Arms for eight years. They take for ever to fix any problems with your apartment. Tycon, the owners of the building are a bunch of -------s also. I asked management at least three times to have the building inspected for Black Mold and she never had it inspected. I kept getting sick. They found Black Mold directly under my bath tub when I moved out. They were going to charge me, because they blamed it on me, but they settled out of court because I had the original documents asking them to check my apartment for Black Mold. I should've sued their ---. Just look for a different apartment, Period...
