Resident 2017 - 2021

4/14/2021

I've been living here for 3 years now. I read the reviews and looked at a few apartments before moving in. I looked at my 3 bedroom apartment in Nov and told management that we were interested in January and moved in on February. The time from November to February the apartment had some other people come to see it and others "working" on it. I moved in and the floor to one of the bedrooms looked like someone keyed it there was about 3 to 4 inch long scratches going back and forth and it was about 4 inch in height. In another bedroom there was a hump from the improper installation of the floors . It was concerning because I have small children and it was enough for anyone who wasn't aware to trip and fall. The door was completely warped ( this was the only thing that was repaired). The electrical outlet in the half bath is still without power since I've moved in and I had two people look at it and say oh this person would have to do it and still 3 years later nothing. The type of floor they used separates and moves… See More>

    Why is the Macy's fireworks display in the back of the building in the circle being allowed on the property? Disrupting the residents... Where is security? The fire works in the street every night is bad enough.. now it's on the property?

        NO HEAT GROSS NEGLIGENCE, UNFAIR PRACTICES, PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT, AND DISCRIMINATION AGAINST ONE BEDROOM or A certain side of the building! IF YOUR Apartment Falls as Non Picked PREFERENCE OF the Lafayette Estates Manager who is Ruthless, CHEAP, AND Grossly Despicable You WILL BE TREATED UNFAIRLY! CALLING FOR HEAT DAY AND NIGHT AND NEED TO BUY PORTABLE HEATERS! WELL A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT WILL HELP TO Resolve issues BUT HOPEFULLY THIS MANAGER WILL CHANGE HIS WAYS BEFORE IT GETS TO THAT!

            Management is terrible! Horrible at communicating and handling any maintenance request. There is no sense of urgency when it comes to maintenance requests. Heat, what heat? Be prepared to spend extra money on heaters. .the building does not provide heat. They heaters areOFF 10pm-5 am.. you'll wake up to the loud noises of the heaters around 4-5 am when they are finally being turned on. Washers and dryers in the laundry room DO NOT WORK. Mold can be found where you place your detergent and fabric softener. For all the rent we pay you would think management Would do something about having them cleaned and inspected.

              Hi yall, my name is Beatrice and I have lived here for 10 years . For all those thinking about moving here I say look elsewhere. Unfortunately my fixed income does not allow me to live elsewhere and as a result I shall call this home until my dying days. Ever since the new management group took over these buildings it has been all about savings at the cost of the residents. Recently they have placed sub meters in all apartments in order to start charging for electricity. Electricity was always included in the high rent they have been charging but now they found a way to pass over the electrical charges onto the residents. Just recently they replaced my 5 year old refrigerator with a hunk of crap that barely keeps my food cold. These new cost efficient refrigerators are designed to save electricity while keeping food cold at a higher temperature. Even when I place the setting at the highest the refrigerator still does not feel as cold as the older that was replaced. The general feeling of safely has always been abysmal round these parts. Too many young ones up to no good and they love preying… See More>

                Hello Beatrice, Lafayette Boynton and the surrounding area have seen major changes over the past few years since we purchased the apartment complex in October 2011. Nelson Management has put a lot of careful thought into the Capital improvements made here. We have increased our security coverage completely and added cameras in all of the lobbies, every hallway, stairwell, and elevator, as well as in the parking lot and all around the front entryways. We also drastically renovated all of our lobbies and hallways and added an on-site green space complete with trellis and outside exercise equipment for residents to enjoy. Nelson Management has also added brand new washing machines for the convenience of our tenants. In addition, we expect to soon commence the building out of a first-class state of the art gym for all residents to use. Each of these measures and more were taken so Nelson Management can provide a safe and comfortable environment for all residents. And lastly, in a few short months our community will be getting Ferry service to and from Manhattan from the adjacently renovated Soundview park which boasts riverfront public walkways/bike path and brand new ball.

                I have been living at the Lafayette/Boynton houses for well over 20 years and I can attest to the prior reviews and sum it up in 3 words. "STAY AWAY". The area is quite deceiving. It looks like a quiet area in the day time but once the sun goes down all bets are off and the criminal element comes out to play. The management entity running these buildings are a Jewish conglomerate called Nelson Management Group. They took over the buildings over 5 years ago and ever since then things have spiraled out of control. All they care about is collecting the exorbitant rents they charge for these deplorably maintained apts. Maintenance is a joke and when you need fixing they throw you on a waiting list. Although my 2 bedroom rent is fixed at $850 a month it shocks me that new tenants are being hosed for as much as $1500 a month for a one bedroom. Sure they get refurbished apts with new appliances but these apts are not worth that much especially when mice and roaches are infesting these buildings. The rampant drug dealing in the stairwells is also another detracting point. Another poster stated the… See More>

                  Hello I am almost a 2 year resident and after my lease is up I am getting the hell out of dodge. I regret ever making a decision to move to this part of the Bronx.Allow me to touch on every point of this dilapidated property in order to describe the hell I have endured for 1.5 years. PARKING: Atrocious parking conditions exist for anyone who is not willing to pay the extorted price of $85 dollars to park within the so called gated parking area. I say so called because anyone can waltz in and out of this place. gates are either propped open or broken. No matter where you park, outside or in, your car will get broken into. NOISE: Each floor have 10 units and as you can surmise when you put 10 low income families on each floor your ears will be bombarded by all sorts of urban sounds. Expect loud parties, loud music and screaming and yelling at all times of the night. Neighbors are very rude in this complex and they believe everyone else should put up with their wild events. Unacceptable behavior by so called civilized people. Summer is the worst time period. The nearby park brings… See More>

                    Greetings: My name is Dennis and I have been living at the Lafayette houses for close to 5 years. First and foremost if you are thinking of moving here please for God sakes rethink this decision. STAY AWAY FROM THIS HELL HOLE!!! This place in slightly above living in a city project run by NYCHA but with a starting rent of $1400 for a one bedroom. A complete and utter rip off. Let me start by saying that the property is in an abandoned stretch that is cut off from the rest of the Bronx by the Bruckner highway and is sandwiched in by a park that is a haven for homeless vagrants. That being said this place is a haven for crime and drug dealing. If you park your car on the streets then expect it to be broken into multiple times in the course of a year. The surrounding complexes are all NYCHA run buildings so this pretty much tells you what kind of people live in and around the area. 5 years ago I was suckered in by the realtor who stated this was an up and coming area. Boy, was i ever conned. Not only do I have to… See More>

                      Hello, I've been residing here since 1984. I have seen a lot of changes. Some are for the good and others are for the bad. As for rent price, I think they should come down. Starting price is $1300. Mind you thats for a low floor. The higher you go, the more you pay, also terrace and no terrace contributes to that rate. They are making new tenants pay $85 for parking, AC's I'm not sure if its the same as old tenants or not , so I can't talk about that.However washing machines, new tenants are not allowed to have. Now the laundry facility is ok. I mean it's not gonna be super grand, it is in a basement for crying out loud, but there's always atleast 1- 3 machines broken. How to management expect for everyone to use those machines, I really don't know. Especially since there are only 2 super washers and 8 washing machines. There are 19 floors in each building and 13 apts on each floor. That math just doesn't add up. Now I am speaking for building 875. I wish they would bring back the basketball court or something so the kids and go… See More>

Apartment is crawling with mice that come through holes that management does not properly fix coming thru and dying in the radiators foul stench coming out of them and management is very nasty and always changing. Save yourself and your health n live under a bridge. I have been seriously sick since moving in and am now looking to sue them. The worst. I repeat the worse.

                              I have lived in the Layfette Boynton Complex since 1996. I have seen at least 4 different management companies and managers run the complex. This recent management has done the most to improve the complex, though. I love my apartment. It's spacious and since the new management has arrived the complex in a whole has been maintained much better. Transportation is limited. Bus stop running at 12am. Parking is available if you have NY plates and one car. If you are a dual resident then you are out of luck. I experienced a problem with mice but the management has done everything to assist and the problem has improved. The appearance of the complex has improved vastly. The co-ops are very expensive for the location. Who wants to pay 300k and not have your own private laundry items in your apartment. But, I will get an insider price. Because of some of the trees on the side walk the trees are buckling, but what can you do about that? Cut down a tree? There use to be a rat problem from Soundview Park, but that seems to have improved.… See More>

                                Previous reviewer- "you're a liar and your breadth stinks". This is a beautiful area, especially now that they have gated the entire complex. There are parking lots, baseball fields and basketball courts. I grew up here and can count the number of serious crimes on one foot. Most of the kids attend catholic schools such as Spellman High School (Judge Sotomayor) and Cardinal Hayes (Regis Philbin, Martin Scorsese). There is a mall next to the complex and another one further up on Story Ave. Middle income people reside here that work for hospitals, the MTA and other good jobs. You're probably white and don't feel like you belong well that's your fault, maybe you will feel comfortable around your own people good for you. Don't bash my neighborhood! The fact of the matter is someone sees this as a nice place to live or they would not have bought it and turned it co-op. So there!

                                  Unsafe area, a lot of gang and drug activity. Not much to do minus a very small and limited retail strip. McDonalds, supermarket, 99 cent store. Mass transit is available by a single bus, but it stops running at midnight.
