Pros: Great location in a landmark historic district on West End Ave.; beautiful lobby; generally well-kept apartments; some striking city and river views from the upper floors.<br>Cons: Maintainence is spotty; elevators could use a major overhaul; "doormen" aren't very effective - they mostly sit thereSee More >

problems with plumbing refuse to get fixed by management. We have had the smell of sewage in our bathroom since we moved in. Management's suggestion "just open the window". Management constantly lie. Some of the workers there are very nice andSee More >

The best thing about building is location. Otherwise, I would not move in! There are no services on the building. Nothing works as it should even though it looks good. I can't wait for the lease to end!See More >

The building smells awful to say the least. There is not real trash chute but garbage is located at the emergency stairs. We've been without water for 10 days in January. My heat never hasn't work properly. The concierge is a joke, they don't evenSee More >

building management is poor. latest indignity is that we have had no mail service at the building now for almost three weeks. management rearranged the mailboxes, apparently without coordinating with the post office. management posted a notice in the lobby, in which it lied toSee More >

with the demolition of apartments, there has been an infestation of bugs, flies, gnats, etc.: just like today, the elevators break down far too often - they refurbished the interior, but not the mechanics of the elevators --- most of the workers seem unhappy &See More >

New tenants are footing the bill for all improvements, although any so-called amenities are still just a fiction. Rent controlled/stabilized make up 90% of the tenants, and their electric usage, a/c, heat, etc., is all included in their low rent. New tenants will pay super high costsSee More >

The rent stabilized and rent control tenants make this building seem awful, but it's not. They like to complain about everything!! They set up a table in the lobby and people who don't belong to their tenants' association are made to feel like outcasts!! It's like OWS,See More >

they lose packages and deliveries at the front desk; the concierge will not stop anyone from entering the building; the building management is dreadful and seem to not care about the comfort, safety, or cleanliness of the hallways and stairways; everything is staged in the cyber world,See More >

Metal doors that slam shut with a bang! Poor management that seems designed to appear upscale but really is annoying and inconsiderate. There is no roof garden. Other than a beautiful lobby that was there before the new owners took over, nothing that they advertise actually exists.See More >

Windermere is the trashiest building ever. Stellar management is horrible. The super is a ----! Worst management ever. Anytime you ask for maintenance, they tell you the building is old and there is nothing they can do about it. They leave tenants without heat, waterSee More >

Great building, nice room, but poorest management ever. The super in this building is the probably the worst I've ever met. He was "nice" when you just moved in and gave you a hard time when you decided to leave. He seemed really mad mostSee More >

It's very odd how all the reviews below are so positive and posted around the same time. That's just not the case here. Despite the recent renovations, you'll find that the building never managed to reach its full potential. When there is a problem -See More >
