    3/5 Anonymous on Oct 31, 2019

    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.
