Resident • 2004 - 2005 Not Recommended
I lived there for nine months in late 2004 - 2005. My apartment was in the French Quarter section and it was very nice inside. I had a great porch, new windows. the paint and carpet looked good, etc. My furnace died, however, in the middle of winter and it took 4 repair visits to fix it - this meant 4 nights without heat in early January when it was below 0 degrees. The maintainance people also left a mess and damaged the wall and floor. I complained to the office, they apologised and I was not held responsible for the damage when I moved out.<br>Snow removal during the big storm around Christmas was as good as anywhere else in the city, which is to say it took a few days. Other storms were cleared away promptly. We never lost power during that storm, either!<br>I smelled a lot of marijuana/incense int he hallways and one night I overheard three people who lived next door discussing and comparing the prisons they had spent time in. They also discussed the crimes they had been convicted of, and while none of them were violent offenders, I was not impressed with the management's screening of prospective tenants. While my section of the building was very quiet, there were at the time 6 bars/nightclubs in the French Quarter and I did see many drunks involved in predictable drunken behavior.
