Resident • 2007 - 2008 Not Recommended
I'll be moving when my lease is up.<br\> The temperature control in my apartment is completely unpredictable. I never know whether I'm coming home to a sauna or meat locker climate. My heating/cooling units also require pieces of cardboard to dampen vibrational noises that compete with, and often defeat, my stereo system; maintenance comes and moves the cardboard when I complain. My dishwasher has leaked since I've moved in; there have been two unsuccessful attempts to fix it. The laundry machines often leave a noisome smell in clothing, with or without bleach. My kitchen smoke alarm has a sensitivity that prevents even the lightest sauteing. The maintenance people are very nice, but not typically able to fix things.<br\> And the noise, oh the noise... Every night brings long caravans of police vehicles parading up and down the West Side Highway with sirens blaring. The nighttime construction noise is longer lived and even more unbearable (Didn't researchers just find that loud noise during sleep correlates with increased blood pressure?). The Port Authority has decreed that there will be none of the "early to bed" part of Franklin's old saying.<br\> Oh, and the hardwood floors seem to be giving way/about to break in spots.
