Resident • 2005 - 2006 Not Recommended
Some nice vintage features - hardwood floors, bigger than average rooms, balconies, high ceilings & oddly bucolic 16 acre close-in location. On the minus side:<br><br>- Cheap & cheesey rehabs of tiny kiitchen & bath areas<br><br>- Management firm otherwise specializes in Section 8 housing & sometimes sees fit to treat clients in this complex with similar TLC.<br><br>- Waiting lists for updates to ancient window A/C units. Outdated & noisy seasonal steam heating system runs very hot or very cold. Pretty much impossible to regulate temperature & humidity levels.<br><br>- Maintenance staff for a semi-antique 80 unit complex cut from 4 to (variously) 1 to 1&1/2. Not fair to the remaining staff who do try hard.<br><br>- Unending problems with elevators, pipes, basement flooding, odors, deteriorating pool, phone & cable connections, false alarms, etc. etc.<br><br>Sum up: The Barrcrest daily gives you an almost dizzying variety of reasons to rethink your rent vs. buy decision.
