    Just moved into the building this month. All staff from management to super to concierge seem wonderful. Was a little disappointed to have to pay an amenity fee after being told that the building did not have an amenity fee. When we applied for the apartment there was not amenity fee associated with the apartment and we feel that should have been grandfathered in. Other than this issue everything seems to be good.

    If you check rental websites, many current tenants are subletting their units. Many are also leaving. The best thing about this building is the staff, that's it. Noisy neighborhood (like living on the LES), inconsiderate neighbors, constant emails from management asking tenants to be courteous to others due to various issues all the time. Check the hidden yelp reviews. I didn't stick out my lease.

Living in location

As the largest city in the U.S. and one of the world's biggest cultural and economic hubs, New York City offers renters an experience they just won't find anywhere else. Specifically, this bold, fast-paced city offers economic opportunities for renters across a wide variety of industries. It's also a global center for finance, media, art, technology, and more, and attracts some of the world's most talented professionals. New York City is also known for its iconic landmarks, such as the Empire State Building, Times Square, the Brooklyn Bridge and more.

Clearly, there's so much for renters to do and see while living here, whether it's enjoying shows on Broadway or at Lincoln Center; visiting the hundreds of museums in the city; spending time outdoors in Central Park; or attending a sports game. The city is also extremely diverse, attracting renters from all around the world. This is reflected in the city's world-class food scene: No matter what type of cuisine you're looking for, you'll be able to find it in New York City. Additionally, NYC's vibrant neighborhoods each have their unique charm, from the artistic vibe in Greenwich Village to the bustling streets of Chinatown.

Festivals, parades, and street fairs are common, celebrating the city's multicultural heritage.

Renting in New York City, NY

New York City neighborhoods are very dense and walkable. Here, rentals in Manhattan consist mostly of high-rise and mid-rise apartment buildings, as well as some historic townhomes. Outside of Manhattan, there are still many high-rise buildings, but you'll also see some smaller walk-up apartments and even single-family homes for rent. Because New York City is so dense, rental apartments tend to be much smaller here than in other major U.S. cities. New York also has some of the most expensive rental prices in the U.S., although rent in the outer boroughs tends to be cheaper than in Manhattan. However, New York City also has strong renter protections and even has some rent-controlled apartments to combat the high rental prices. It's also important to note that competition for rental apartments is high, and many prospective renters work with brokers when renting to make the process easier.
