The other reviews are definitely valid. The floors dent SO easily, kitchens are nice but small, construction is ongoing (though I've spoken with a couple of workers from Gotham Const and they said they have to be out of here the first part of January). However, we are VERY happy with our washer and dryer (perhaps the other reviewer has a problem with his dryer...). We are also generally very happy with the building. We are paying $200 more for double the space than our last place (which had no review, minimal amenities and so-so neighborhood), so maybe it's a matter of a difference in expectations. We have enough room to be comfortable, there's a washer and dryer in the unit, nice closets, beautiful finishes, a view of the empire state building out of one window and the GWB out the other - all pretty great for NYC. If you are most worried about a really nice building, love amazing views, and like amenities (hopefully they come soon...) then this is the building for you. However, if you're more worried about the neighborhood, ease of commute, and price then this probably isn't the place for you.
