I would not recommend living here. 1. I'd estimate that 20% of the apartments are corporate - that is, transient tenants staying for a short time. That causes security issues, not to mention the lobby often looks like a messy hotel lobby. 2. The doormenSee More >

This building has to be the worst run building in the city of New York, They even fired the only person willing to take on the outrageously lazy, disrespectful, and downright ornery staff that I have ever come in contact with. This building is aSee More >

Symphony House has gone downhill badly since some years ago. Many permanent tenants who had to qualify with incomes 40x monthly rent have left, to be replaced by Corporate Apartments. 140-160 of the 400 apartments are corporate - meaning transient tenants staying for aSee More >

We really love Symphony House and its wonderful location. Also the building ownership is continually making upgrades to the property both interior apartments and exterior amenities. The new green roof is spectacular as well as the childrens playroom! And having on siteSee More >

I've lived here for a few years and love the location and convenient commute to my office. Many staff members here are good but there are a number of really horrible ones. The daytime concierge and doormen are good for the most partSee More >

I've lived here for 2 years, and there are several things that people considering living here need to know: - The management is horrendous. They are rude, indifferent, and generally unhelpful. - The rules to the gym / rooftop are ridiculous - you cannot have friendsSee More >

I think you are talking about Symphony Place not Symphony House since these are not renovated they are new and we don't have a super, new or otherwise. Please change postingSee More >

Before you decide to rent an apartment in this building there are some things you should know: Recently, the building hired a new super who is neglecting the building. It sometimes takes 5 maintenance requests before a repair is made. Also, after 9:00PM and before 8:00AMSee More >

We have been generally happy, the regular doormen and front desk folks are great, weekend doormen less so. They try really hard on the maintenance side - very nice and punctual. It is noisey, but the views are great. If we don't stay, it willSee More >

we are subletting and the flat is perfect for our limited needs. The front of house staff, though, needs some serious training by Resnick about what is acceptable and appropriate on the job behavior. The doormen in particular, are either on their mobile phones, chattingSee More >

We have been living at Symphony House for several years -- not sure exactly why we have put up with big rent increases and lots of construction noise. With the building under construction on 8th ave (between 54th and 55th), plan to be upSee More >

I have lived here for several years. Half the building are corporate apartments with transient tenants. The staff never gets to know them and they treat the building and staff as if it were a hotel - even asking the concierge for more toilet paper!!See More >

The symphony house living conditions are mediocre at best. Security: The security is virtually non-existent. About one-third of the apartments are leased by corporate relocation firms that sub-lease the apartments for short-term use. Consequently, security does not know who lives in the buildingSee More >
