Avalon Riverview is not a TERRIBLE place to live. The neighborhood is nice, and it's fairly convenient to Manhattan. However, it is very over-priced. The first problem I had came on the day I signed the lease, which should have warned meSee More >

Avalon Riverview North offers fantastic city views, but the management is so poor, it makes me question whether the views are worthwhile. After dealing with construction delays and paying $500 for amenities that weren't even available yet, our rent was increased by 20% at theSee More >

I feel like the other reviewers on this site are real whiners. Unlike them, my husband and I did not grow up in the city, and do not expect people to wait on us hand and foot. After a year living in Manhattan,See More >

Lobby often smells horrible. Concierge service is a joke (except for Dorissa and Milton). Management allows very large dogs, charges pet owners monthly pet rental fee (as well as pet deposit), but then almost never power washes the sidewalk in front of the buildingSee More >

They are ridiculous. The first year I paid $500 for amenities fee that is for a full year. Then I went on a 6month lease and I paid another $500. Then I renewed my lease again for 6 months and I got charged another $500.See More >

I went by yesterday to look at renting an apartment here, arriving around 4:20 Saturday afternoon. I was pleasantly greeted by the doorman, who told me it would be a 45 minute wait to see a leasing consultant. I waited. At 5:00pm,See More >

Front desk will let anybody up without the thought of screening them. When they do call to let you know you have a visitor its well after they arrive at your door. Beware of water charges, only rental that I know of that charges 40-60See More >

The building is nice. The location is another story. The building is located only 2 blocks from the subway, but you might as well be in Siberia. For the past few weekends, the #7 train stops running at midnight Friday throughSee More >

I went to Avalon for information on studio and one bedroom apartments and was welcomed and treated friendly by the staff and leasing office. Unfortunately, the building is in the middle of nowhere, across the street for an abandoned mill complete with smoke-stacks, five longSee More >

If you are used to fanastic service in NYC, then stay in NYC. Although the building has wonderful views of the city, it goes through more staff changes than I change my underware. Maitenence requests can take over a week, and the overall service isSee More >

I was at AVN for 2 years. My biggest complaint is that I got screwed out of $700 of my security deposit for bogus charges: floors, walls and (most galling) for cleaning even though I had scrubbed every corner of that place. See More >

Elevators are always broken, but that's ok if you want to walk 30 floors up. The lobby smells like garbage due to poor construction and disposal room located right at the front. Do not recommend this place to anyone.See More >

They raise your rent anywhere from 10-20% at the end of your lease- the building looks nice, but it is just a veneer- upon closer inspection you will find a cheap building with paper-thin walls, which is a problem because it seems everyone who livesSee More >
