My family and I have lived here for a few years and that is only because we could not afford to move. The flooding is horrendous and so is building management. For two years we have been waiting for maintenance just to change a light bulb and the security light at the top of the stairs. The stench left after hurricane Irene, where we flooded 11 ft above flood level was nauseating and because of the mold caused by the flooding my husband and I got bronchitis and my 3 year old son was rushed to the hospital with pnuemonia. Going around my building many other residents had the same health problems. After being evacuated from our home for 12 days afterwards we still had to wait a week or so for the street cleaners to come and clean up the remaining sewage on the property. We very rarely have heat in our apartment and hot water is a hit or miss. Our garage was demolished from hurricane Irene and it took them 5 months to fix them and make them useable again. We had 6 ft of water just in our garage and some of the downstairs apartments starting to get water in them as well. We have lost a lot of personal property because of the constant flooding. We flooded 4 times in 2011, so unless you want waterfront property that's mainly sewer water I would not move here.
