There is only so much a great view can do. The apartment building itself is very old and the pipes do not work properly. Sediment builds up in them and clogs the pipes. We have no had hot water in our sink since we got here. Since we got here, the refrigerator broke, the dishwasher needed to be replaced, the garbage disposal needed to be replaced, the toilet broke, the washer stopped working twice, the locks on the doors don't work, and the is a wasp problem for several months every year on the top 15 floors of the building (so you can't use your deck and there is no screen door. Many more problems, but you get the point. Manangement will say they are responsive, which they are, but often the problem is not resolved the first time maintenance comes. We talked to them about alternate arrangements but they told us that these are "normal" maintenance issues for the building. Do you really want to live in a building where these are "normal" maintenance issues? Forty visits from maintenance in half a year seems a little crazy to me.
