I previously posted a 5 star review of River Place, but that was before the building sold. We were fortunate to have moved out before Sandy, but I wanted to be clear on how much the building went downhill when the new owners took over. We had such an amazingly maintained building under the old owners. Now, there are weeds where there were plants, more and more people are using the garage for storage, and the obnoxious letters talking to the tenants like we're children are out of control. When we moved out they said they're upgrading the apartments and appliances - I hope that is true, however we had great appliances to begin with so not sure what they think they're upgrading. For the most part the building was always pretty quiet. We did have some issues with noise from the upstairs neighbor and after speaking to them directly it didn't get better. When we asked for assistance from the building manager, we were told there was nothing they could do. All leases come with a quiet enjoyment clause, and in the past the manager always assisted with ANYTHING; it was clear the new management just didn't care. I'd look very carefully at the entire building before renting here. It's too bad, too, because the location is great!
