    Been happy with the building for a few years now but the downtown area has become filthy and is always covered in litter. There's not much to do in the area anymore due to restrictions. Proximity to the city is currently of no use. We can't access the building facilities due to COVID. Rent is still scary expensive.

    Renewed my lease this year at the Hamilton House. Though more affordable leasing options were available in the neighborhood, the entire DVORA maintenance and concierge teams do an amazing job keeping the residents safe and the building sanitary. Well done!

    4/5 Kapil R. on Mar 4, 2020

    Overall, Hamilton House is a great place to live. The staff are very friendly, and the building is very well maintained.

    2/5 Brittain W. on Sep 3, 2020

    Given the significant issues we had in transferring from one unit to another, we have been incredibly disappointed in DVORA. From initial frustrations with scheduling the move with Kim and the constant outreach we had to do on our part to understand the timing of the logistics given commitments she made on our previous apartment without telling us to the more than 20 major issues that have take over a month to fix. This does not even account how we are being "nickled and dimed" over fees (amenity fees we did not use during the last 6 months; monthly dog fee that no other tenant we knows pays; not honoring market lease offers that are being made to the general public). I know that if we had known of all these issues, we never would have transferred to a different unit - we would have moved. We have been paying full rent for an apartment which did not have washing machine and microwave operational for the first month, paint residue all over our clothes from a poor paint job in the closets, to so much more. And in the end, owners and management have done nothing to compensate for all the work WE have had to do to get the apartment in the shape it should have been in when we moved in. So incredibly disappointing and not what is advertised about the experience.

    the building is pretty good but there are some improvements that can happen. For one the mail area is a mess to a point I am almost inclined to get a better cubby system for bigger packages. The fact mailmen do not have access to the building also hinders a lot. It was a bit difficult moving in as the apartment was not completed nor did i receive a spare key, spare fob, or laundry card, until the end of the 2nd month. With that said the apartment size and noise levels are very good despite one neighbor adjacent to the building that does yard work. I am enjoying the piece but I would like to find ways to make it better. I was accused recently of my dog throwing up in the elevator (he does not ride in the elevator due to anxiety issues) and I have seen others not have bags to clean up after their dogs. If there is a way to have a dog bag dispenser it would help quite a bit. I understand Jersey City has rules but the parking is abysmal. I do not blame the building but it doesnt help. I do not need amenities and maintenance is a bit slow but i am sure they are busy. I am enjoying my time as the 3rd month ends and all the issues are not major and easy fixes. I would like to help with the community of the building as everyone seems nice and quality of life is key for a happy building.

    Love living here! Beautiful building, helpful staff. The bug situation has been rough this month but other than that no complaints.

    Great !

    3/5 Anon on Apr 2, 2020

    I feel that things have been getting worse since I moved in. Maintenance is rarely kept in this building. And the price I’m paying for my apartment is not equal to the service or maintenance I’m getting.

Living in Jersey City

Jersey City is home to a number of distinct landmarks, museums, libraries, and more! The Landmark Loew’s Jersey Theatre – the only Loew’s Theatre outside New York City – offers residents continual showings of classic Hollywood films, and hosts events and theater performances throughout the year.

The city boasts great nightlife, with lots of fine dining options, as well as fast food restaurants, and fabulous views of NYC – but much less crowded.

Jersey City public transportation, however, leaves a lot to be desired. The city is currently experiencing growing pains and work still has to be done to accommodate commuters.

The city is also home to two major universities – the New Jersey City University (NJCU) and Saint Peter’s University – as well as the Hudson County Community College. Rutgers University is close by in Newark, and has an additional location at the Harborside Center that provides classes as part of its MBA curriculum. The concentration of schools within a compact area lends a rather collegiate feel to the city; its thriving student population blends beautifully within the larger art and culture scene of the city.
