I lived here for 3 years. I would have perhaps not written this review had they not ripped me off on the deposit. The property manager just went on to replace blinds on all the windows in the apartment and billed me for it $261. This should have not been the case especially since:
i) The blinds were defintely > 10 years old
ii) My move in check list has malfunctioning blinds on the list
iii)My request to change the blinds in 2004 (Jan) were met by a apartment personnel visit and spend five mintues to unstuck the blinds.
Please recommend if there is a way to pursue this rip of case with the city or state consumer office. hmunger<at> excite<dot>com.
* Water pipes are rusted
* kitchen furnishings are from the 70s - so if you like retro-OK
* there is significant number of car thefts / break ins:
Statistics: 4-5 per year for the last two years
including glass of apartment manager itself was broken into
in Q1 of 2005
* The property exchanged hands recently for a large sum $$.
Financially does not make sense to run this rental operation.
Perhaps that is a reason for unethical practice to use the
deposit for rennovations.
* Sometimes noise from 280 can be bothersome
Stay away if you can.
