Avoid this building! We though this building would be convenient because it's near Grand Central, but it has turned into a nightmare. There is horrible construction noise on most weeknights and the super will basically just tell you to get earplugs and deal with it. I… See More

For the price we were paying, this was not at all worth it. We had systemic problems with mice and management refused to do anything about it. It seemed that any issue we had, we were just told to wait and they hoped we would forget… See More
