I don't know where to start. This has been the worst rental I've been in. I had no head for a total of 7 days this winter due to boiler problems. I smell weed in the halls and so strong it's in my apartment. Very embarrassing… See More

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. I, personally, experienced… See More

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

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...
