I would not recommend renting at the Capitol at this point. I lived in the building for eight years and absolutely loved the building staff, the location is very convenient, and the apartments are nice and used to be competitively priced versus the neighborhood. However, Bozzuto took over management a few years ago and my experience soured. They must have done something different with the extermination program because over the last two years I had a problem with waterbugs (aka HUGE cockroaches) in my apartment which never was the case under previous management. They hiked my rent precipitously and were not willing to negotiate - though I just moved out and the apartment is listed for $500 less than what they offered me. They are trying to extort money from me on the way out - though I was a loyal tenant for 8 years they threatened to charge me over $7000 for not giving them 60 days notice that I wasn't renewing my lease (note: not breaking a lease. Just not renewing it). It is extremely rare in NYC to be able to know 2 months in advance if you are going to move given rapid turnaround of rental availabilities. Additionally, and this is obviously nobody's fault, construction has just begun on two large buildings on 28th street, and I was woken at 7 AM every morning, including Saturday by the sound of jackhammering and pile driving. I believe this is the reason vacancies are up.

NYCgirlfriend, I must apologize because I only saw your comment on this thread today. I am so sorry for not responding sooner! It seems like we may not have been on the same page previously because we certainly do not allow anyone but residents and their guests to access the building. Can you let me know what you mean when you say you have seen this is the building's vestibules? Perhaps it may be best to connect personally, so please reach out to me at [email protected] or call 212-447-4477 to discuss. Thank you!
