Reviewed 02/27/2007
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD THAT PHRASE "YOU'VE OVERSTAYED YOUR WELCOME?" WHAT ABOUT THE "GET OUT OF JAIL - DO NOT STOP, DO NOT COLLECT $200"?? YES, WELL, THAT IS THE RULE OF CURREN TERRACE. DO **NOT** STOP HERE. IF YOU DECIDE TO, YOU'LL OVERSTAY YOUR WELCOME ON YOUR FIRST DAY.<br><br>FIRST OFF - THE APTS ARE SMALLER THAN A SHOEBOX. IF YOU HAVE KIDS, PRAY TO GOD THEY ARE STILL SMALL ENOUGH TO LIVE IN A 6 X 6 SPACE BECAUSE IN THE 2-BEDROOM, THAT'S HOW BIG THEY ARE. MY NEIGHBORS CAN'T EVEN GET A CRIB, CHANGING TABLE AND VERY TINY HUTCH INTO THEIR BABYS ROOM WITHOUT FALLING OVER TOP OF THEMSELVES.<br><br>SECOND - EVERYTHING IS A LA CARTE, MEANING YOU PAY WATER, HEAT, ELECTRICITY ALL SEPERATE. AND THEY CHEAT YOU ON YOUR WATER/HEAT BILL. THEY HAVE CONCOCTED SOME CRAZY --- PLAN TO SKIM THE TOP AND TAKE YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY, EVEN IF YOU DON'T SPEND $40 IN WATER, YOU GET CHARGED FOR IT. THEY MONTHLY PLAN IS $74 AND IT'S STILL TOO MUCH. MY FRIENDS DON'T PAY THAT FOR A 3 BEDROOM CONDO!!!<br><br>THIRD - PARKING HERE IS A -----. YOU CAN NEVER FIND PARKING. I WIND UP PARKING IN THE LOT ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PROPERTY BECAUSE ONE, THEY NEVER GET HERE IN TIME TO PLOW THE LOTS WHEN IT SNOWS AND TWO, YOU HAVE TENANTS FRIENDS AND FAMILY PARKING IN OUR OWN SPOTS AND OFTEN LEAVE THEIR AUTOS HERE DAYS ON END.<br><br>FOURTH - THEY DO ALLOW ANIMALS, HOWEVER THEY DON'T ENFORCE THEIR RULES. I HAVE A CAT WHICH I PAY $25/MONTH FOR. THAT HAS GONE UP TO $35 A MONTH. MY NEIGHBOR BELOW ME HAS A DOG AND WAS TOLD SHE DOESN'T NEED TO PAY. SO THEY SELECT, PICK AND CHOOSE WHO THEY ALLOW WHAT, WHEN. I'D LIKE TO KNOW HOW THEY CAME UP WITH THIS EXCLUSIVE CLUB AND HOW I CAN BECOME A PART OF IT. I CAN USE THAT $25 ON THE RISING ELECTRICITY COSTS FOR THE SUMMER!!!!! THEY ALLOW LARGE BREED DOGS HERE BUT DO NOT THOROUGHLY CHECK VET RECORDS. PIT BULLS AND AKITAS ARE NOT ALLOWED YET THERE ARE A FEW PIT BULL MIXES IN THE COMPLEX AND THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING TO REMOVE THEM. THEY DO PROVIDE TENANTS WITH DOGGIE BAGS BUT THERE IS ONLY **ONE** POOP BAG STATION NEAR THE PARKING LOT. FOR A COMPLEX THIS SIZE, HAVING SEVERAL BAG STATIONS THROUGHOUT MIGHT HELP PEOPLE TO RECOGNIZE THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES AS A PET OWNER. WHEN YOU WALK OUT YOUR DOOR - THERE'S POOP. WHEN YOU WALK TO YOUR CAR -- THERE'S POOP. I HEARD SOMEONE IN THE OFFICE TELL ANOTHER TENANT THAT IT'S CONSIDERED "APARTMENT LIVING." I LIVED IN ANOTHER APARTMENT IN WORCHESTER, MASS. AND PEOPLE KNEW TO CLEAN UP OR THEY WERE MADE TO GET RID OF THEIR DOG AND WERE FINED. SAD THAT THIS PLACE CAN'T ENFORCE THEIR OWN RULES. BACKBONE ANYONE?????<br><br>FIFTH - MAITENANCE HERE IS REALLY NICE. DAVE, CARMEN, CLAYTON AND JOHN ARE SOOO FRIENDLY AND NICE. THEY TAKE CARE OF THINGS AND CLEAN UP WHEN THEY ARE FINISHED. CAN'T SAY THE SAME FOR THE OFFICE. ANOTHER REVIEW MENTIONED IT DEPENDS ON WHO YOU GET. VERY TRUE. NOT EVERYONE HAS VERY GOOD SOCIAL SKILLS AND NEED A REVIEW IN CUSTOMER SERVICE. BASICALLY "IN ONE EAR OUT THE OTHER" SYNDROME. AND ITS NOT ONLY ME BUT OTHER NEIGHBORS IN MY SECTION AND PEOPLE I'VE MADE FRIENDS WITH HERE.<br><br>SIXTH - SECTION 8 HOUSING!!?? HERE HERE. THEY LET ANYONE IN THEY CAN FIND TO PAY THE RENT. I LEARNED THAT A NEIGHBOR HAD RENTED THE APT. FOR HIS MOM AND HE WOUND UP MOVING IN SELLING DRUGS FROM HIS BEDROOM WINDOW. DON'T THEY DO CREDIT CHECKS?? LOTS OF RIFF RAFF AND TRASH HERE AND THEY COME IN ALL HOURS OF THE NIGHT BLASTING THEIR RAP CRAP. I LIVE IN A CENTER QUAD BUT STILL CAN HEAR THEIR MUSIC FROM THE PARKING LOT ON THE TREMONT STREET SIDE OF THE COMPLEX.<br><br>SEVENTH - IF YOU HAVE KIDS, THERE'S NOTHING TO DO HERE. N-O-T-H-I-N-G!! NO PARK, NO PARK NEARBY, NO WALKING TRAIL, NO POOL - WHAT USED TO BE THE TENNIS COURT HAS WEEDS AND OVERGROWN BRUSH. KIDS ARE MOSTLY DOWN THERE DOING THE UNTHINKABLE. INSTEAD OF CLEANING UP THE PLACE AND MAKING IT ATTRACTIVE AND ENJOYABLE TO LIVE IN, THEY BOLSTER THEIR OWN POCKETS WITH OUR RENT. THE "FITNESS" CENTER IS A JOKE. BOUGHT A KEY FOR $25 LAST YEAR, WENT DOWN THERE AND NOTHING WORKS. THE TREADMILLS CONSTANTLY SHUT DOWN, THE ELIPTICAL SHORT CIRCUITS AND THE WEIGHT MACHINE ISN'T PROPERLY CALIBRATED. INDEED - SAVE YOUR MONEY FOR A GYM MEMBERSHIP. LA FITNESS IS RIGHT UP GERMANTOWN PIKE 3 MILES AWAY!!!!!!!<br><br>THE ONLY GOOD POINT IS HAVING A WASHER AND DRYER IN THE APARTMENT BUT I'VE BEEN HERE FOR YEARS AND MINE CONSTANTLY STOPS WORKING. WE ALSO ARE WITHOUT HOT WATER AT TIMES OR HAVE NO WATER PRESSURE WHICH MAKES WASHING CLOTHES OR DISHES PRETTY TOUGH. I SPEND MOST OF MY ELECTRIC BILL ON MY DRYER BECAUSE IT NEVER DRYS ANYTHING. I ASKED FOR THEM TO CLEAN THE LINT DEPOSITS OUT SO IT DIDN'T SET A FIRE - THAT WAS 1 1/2 YEARS AGO AND THEY STILL HAVEN'T COME.<br><br>DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE.
