This is a good apartment building. I would in no way so great, but a good deal.<br><br>Rent & Utilities<br>Rent is extremely reasonable, and includes all utilities except cooking gas ($18/mo) and cable if you want it. However, they pay electric, gas, hot H2O and free wireless internet. <br><br>Parking<br>Parking spots are $35/mo and there is usually a waiting list. <br><br>Internet<br>The "free wi-fi" is also a problem. Although they have over 10 routers and range extenders, the internet is not reliable. If you need to always have internet on 100%, you might as well pay for your own. But, the free internet is definitely an added bonus (when it works :-).<br><br>Laundry<br>There is coin-op laundry in the basement. Never had a problem except occasionally steals a quarter or two. However, the office will refund you if you write down the # of machine and time.<br><br>Intercom<br>They have a secured building, one master key to get in the building and another to get in your apartment. The intercom system calls your phone (land or cell) and you can speak to the person. To "buzz" them in, press 6 and it opens the door.<br><br>Mail<br>There are mailboxes on the left right as you walk in. Usually arrives a little after noon or so. Office will also accept packages for you if not home.<br><br>Office<br>They are great people! There is usually always someone there ready to speak to you. They pay for an answering service so you can always leave a message with a real person. You can e-mail them repair requests. They usually respond within 24-48 hours. Very very nice though, always willing to help you out. They are a main reason why I still stay here.<br><br>Heating<br>The heat in this building is awful (to put it nicely. Although there are brand new windows, the heating isn't good. The building is old, and so is the heating system, I think its steam? Anyways, the heat is controlled by a thermostat in the 1st floor office. Therefore, your apartment may be freezing while theres is not. However, when the heat comes on, ITS HOT! I generally have had the windows open all winter.<br><br>Bathroom<br>Although I can only go on my apartment, the bathroom is fine. The tub was remolded, and I never feel dirty. Hot H2O takes a couple of minutes to reach top floors.<br><br>Kitchen<br>Very very small. There is little to no counter-top space, so don't expect much in this department. The fridge is big, and the stove works great.<br><br>**Great views!<br>**Very safe!<br>**Good find!<br>**Great staff!<br><br>--Bad heat<br>--Internet is bad<br>--Old building
