    Apparently the owners of this complex are blind, mute or do not care what is happening with the people who live there, and with those who are going to request or look for an Application, the first and most unpleasant thing is when you have a conversation with (Ms. Yelverton) in charge or manager of the place, I say it by the way she talks to the office employees, which has nothing to do with the way a professional talks to anyone else, but much less, I never thought that she could speak like that to a tenant or someone that she did not even know, when you are going there to look for information or are going to bring the information, this is when you are supposed to give them the documents, and then receive an apartment, Second - is that this supposed manager is not a human being, and if she is, she does not behave as such, if not, she behaves like a complete animal or an ogre when she wants to devour prey, she treats the people in the most unrespectful and unpleasant that any other human being can treat others, for me in particular that… See More>

      My family has lived in Rosedale gardens since the early 2000s. I was a teenager when I moved there. I am now in my late 30s and I have nothing good to say about this place. Sub par and preying on low income people is what comes to mind. A large deposit from low income families is needed to secure an apartment at Rosedale Gardens. I moved to California in my late 20s after getting married and my parents and sister stayed at Rosedale Gardens until they recently moved in 2020. My parents to Florida to retire and my sister to California to be closer to me. They were notified they would need to pay an additional THREE months rent from the date they left to get the apartment "market ready". An 800 square foot box needed three months worth of rent to be deemed market ready? I could not believe how disgusting this was to prey on low income families in this way. I have rented multiple apartments and am now a homeowner and have never heard anything so ridiculous. They essentially steal poor peoples security deposit by charging three months rent from the day they leave. Luckily for… See More>

        Former Resident of Rosedale Gardens, from 1983 - 2014. The grounds are decent as the lawn areas are well maintained. Electricity and water are included in rent, so thats a nice perk. Where this complex fails miserbly is in its Management department. The property manager, Bernice Yelverton, is the most dispicable, mean-spirited person ive ever met. She has been ran out of other apartment complexes and is a cancer to any mangement team shes apart of. Until she retires or is fired, I would suggest looking elsewhere for an apartment.

          I'll start with the pro's: The grounds are well kept and fairly clean. The maintenance staff person that is in our building is very nice and considerate. The con's: The Manager-"Yelverton", is a low life, ignorant, rude, disrespectful, ugly, wicked, inconsiderate, unprofessional and way less than desired person to have the gift of holding the position of Manager. I'm sure her secretary has to follow suit because she needs the job because she can be rude and aloof as well-but Yelverton takes first prize for being a wench! A necessary visit to the Mgmt. office is always and unpleasant experience! I leave wanting to have strangled Yelverton and sticking a bar of soap in her nasty mouth. Unprofessional is the general air in there. We have noisy neighbors who have moved in and blast their music in the early hours, late hours and on early morning weekends. Lately, there are way too many instances of either no hot water, or no water at all for some reason or another. I dont believe the reasons as they are redundant. In an effort to avoid having to deal with the office, I've sent notes with my rent on occasion asking for assistance-not… See More>

            Management at this building complex is horrible. The manager Ms. Yelverton is even worse. I've applied with all the qualifications necessary to Rosedale Gardens. Unfortunately, their main office can't ever seem to keep their paper work in order, and are completely unorganized. To make matters even worse, the managers lack of professionalism and respect for others in general is completely out of wack and, although the price are fair, after a large deposit; dealing with someone like that has definitely helped me to opt out of ever wanting to reside there regardless of the price. Home is a place people want to go to and relax but, every time I left that office, I felt so violated, making my decision process that much easier. Now I reside in a building where I am comfortable with going to the main office, should I need to speak to anyone & although I pay a little more, I get the respect all people should give/receive and I have peace of mind...priceless! I haven't read a good comment about her yet on this page & have experienced what people are talking about first hand. There are places all… See More>

              The manager at Rosedale Gardens has the most horrible, unprofessional attitude. It's as if she feels superior to all those around her. She is rude and expects respect in return, it's a shame because these buildings have so much potential. Due to my experience with the manager not only do i not want to move in to these buildings, I will NEVER recommend them to anyone, I would actually advise against it!! Due to the poor management their office is always disorganized. It's a headache just to deal with and one that is not worth it!!!

                the manager is a ----- and if she was not running that place people would be much happier. she lacks class and manner she should be fired, for she is not making that place any better. All she does is smoke at the front of the building, she a useless piece of garbage.

                  Ive been living here since I was 3 now im going turning 20 and all I can say is that everything is gettong worst. Rent goies up every year by 5% to 25% a year depending on the new re-modeling. Its a nice quite area, but for the rent we pay we should at least be allowed small dogs. And don't get me started on the manager, some tired to break in when I was home and I didn't know the security guards number; so I called the buildbuilding and she gave me such an attitude. I told her can she at least look at the cameras to see if we can try and get a face, but she tells me that's not why the cameras are there for I shouldve called the guards then hangs up. She is an African American and racists to everyone in the build except for the elderly white people. She even tells people not to stand near the building even thought we live here. I do not recommend plus I live on one of the top floors and I never have hot water to shower in the am until 12-430 then again I have to wait… See More>

                      I when to ask for information of the status of my place on the waitting list and she responded to me with a VERY NASTY ACTITUD. I was very surprise of this kind of behavior from a manager. i can't understand how a person with her age and position that she has in this office can have such an ugly and very nasty behavior with the customers and tenants. I think is time for her to RETIRE and i hope somebody takes some action. I see that i am not the first one to complain about this.

                          I have been at Rosedale since I was about 10. It is very clean. The manager is a piece of work. She needs to take charm classes becasue she has no problem talking to you as if you are a child. She has no respect for anyone. It is an ok place to live and the rent is not that high but lately every morning their is no hot water.

                            Yes! I will say that the buildings are kept clean thanks to mantinence. But the manager of this site is very nasty when it comes to the tenants her unprofessional behavior is totally inapproprite and unacceptable, her careless record keeping, she engages children in conversation about there parent. WOW! Is this someone you would like to be your property manager? This is Rosedale Gardens(not Yelventon Gardens). I have lived in this complex for 12yrs and never came across any of the managers being so arrogant and not being able to perform there costermer service to there tenants. If she was to pay attention to the roach infested cabinets like she did the outer grounds we would feel like we where in Riverdale not Rosedale. They say don't judge a book by it's cover I read this book and it's SUCKS.

                              Rossedale is a good place to live. The buliding that i live 1810 is kept clean the overall apearnce is good. However when it come down to it the manager has a stick stuck up her ---. she is trying to do too much to the outdoor curbe apeal and not focusing on inside the apartments. i have live their since 2004 and when my family and i moved in the only thing that was new in the apartment were the doors and the floors. the bathroom very small and the tub, sink and toilet needs to be change. u can't even take a bath because they painted over an ld tub and the painted is riping off. this place needss help and it need to treat its tenants better. i thinks the manager and the super needed to be replaced and someone else who has better people and apartments running skills needs coming in and work on the place.

                                  No one is responsible

                                  There have been significant problems with the hot water recently. The management claims that the water is controlled by the Monroe projects, and refuses to accept responsibility for this repeated problem (despite continuing to collect full rent from us each month). When we call 311, the Housing Authority claims this property does not show up on their system, despite the fact that the management at Monroe knows what we are talking about when we contact them. Monroe repeatedly tells us that they have ordered parts, have fixed the problem, etc., but it is clear that they are being dishonest. Nobody wants to take responsibility for this issue, and we are seriously considering moving elsewhere because of incompetence on ALL sides. If any other tenants are experiencing this problem, please post here. We have much more of a voice collectively. As for the property, the grounds are nicely maintained and the buildings are generally clean. The maintenance staff works very hard and the workers are helpful. However, there is a problem with low class people occasionally urinating in the hallways, etc., and recently there have been problems with some idiot starting fires in the… See More>

                                    Rosedale Gardens is Good.

                                    Okay honestly, these people are probably talking out of their butt. Rosedale Gardens is kept very clean, I live in the Main Building Where the Manager is located. 1810 and ive lived here since the 90's. To tell you the truth, the manager and her secretary are usually treating others bad for the performance of what they've done. The manager is friendly with who treats her with respect. The Workers are tremendous, they're very friendly. Although there's a certain Security that has been reported to be messing around with the drugs, and they haven't fired him at all. So who knows. He's Jamaican and has a nasty beard. But anyways the apartments are clean if YOU KEEP THEM CLEAN. FOR ALL THE years ive lived here, THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A MICE OR RAT IN MY APARTMENT. Roaches have been inside my house, but lately Their hasn't. Everything due to vandalism is usually brought from the Monroe Houses, but also from a couple of [Wannabe] Gangsters who recently moved in. The Manager does have control on who enters, and she hasn't been doing a good job on kicking some people who don't belong here to leave.

                                      Rosedale Gardens is sinking fast

                                      I definately have to agree with these first 2 reviewers. I live in Rosedale Gardens and the manager and secretary are *very* unfriendly. These two border on innanity. The managers were always eccentric but I've never seen anything like this. The current management team (the 2 of them) are making life UNBEARABLE for the peace-loving people in this Development. For instance, if you report vandalism, unruly neighbors or garbage strewn in the hallways and staircases the first one coming under suspicion is YOU. That's right, you read that right. It's ridiculous, of course, and considering the new management's "get tough" policy on property vandalism. I've never seen anything so ridiculous in all my life. In the end I may wind up taking these people to court. I'm just a peace-loving person but I believe I'm allowed to stick up for my rights and not be victimized by quality of life offenders with no respect whatsoever for neighbors. I don't know what happened to this place. I believe if there is garbage and human waste strewn out in the halls I shouldn't be the one held accountable to pick it up. I should report it and the maintenance porters should come… See More>

                                        Terrible area, not a nice place to live at all.

                                        Rosedale Gardens is located between 2 NYCHA developments, split by a busy highway, and in an area full of many large low income public housing complexes. More on this later. First of all the area is horrible. There are a lot of gangs and obvious drug activity. Robbery is very common, I even got to witness an elderly women get stomped on a sidewalk outside my building in the afternoon for a purse recently. Stomped, an old women. Vandalism is common, the building itself gets sprayed with graffiti every once and a while. The scars remain. Gunshots are pretty common sounds. Police will raid the neighboring buildings for drugs every once and a while, making it unsafe to even walk by or become at risk for getting arrested in the sweep. Public transportation sucks, it's too long (and too dangerous) a walk at night. The local bus only runs once an hour after midnight. The buses themselves are slow. Now remember I mentioned the NYCHA, this complex is litterally connected to a large low income housing project. The Monroe Houses. At first glance it is hard to tell the difference, minus the fact the Rosedale Gardens buildings have somewhat cleaner, better kept grounds… See More>

Roaches galore. Manager and secretary to management office are constantley changing. The current secretary has a serious attitude problem....as well as the Manager! She has no eticate. It's disgusting and to get in the best part, you have to put thousands down to become a "shareholder first"...Never!!!!!!! To Get in you have to wait from like three years to forever!!! Get this, their one bedroom list has been open to people waiting from 1996...ten years ago!!! They still take applications and charge you $250.00. Oh and yes.... good luck if you request to pull your name off the list.... I am still waiting for my refund of $200.00...because there's a $50.00 administration fee!!! Your hardworking money is SOOOOOOOOOOOO not worth it. Keep looking!!!<br>
