If everyone is moving out the problem with those Rent Controlled tenants will be over soon.
Do not be deceived by the nice photos. This building is HORRIBLE. Doormen do nothing. Management ignores tenants. Rent controlled tenants do as they please. Hallways smell. Constant issues with hot water, electricity, etc. Do not be sold on the nice photos, the place might have looked like that at one time. Youll need an Equinox membership. Youll also need to have a third hand to open the door while carrying packages as the doormen do close to nothing. Owners are cheap and it shows. TENANTS BEWARE! Everyone is moving out. Do not move in!
Wow Hoodia, you are obsessed over these rentals, even so much that 300mercer - Streeteasy's most prolific annoyance since the loss of Riversider and aboutready - has called you out.
Hoodia, There is plenty of supply of high-end rentals now at $5-8 per sq ft. Higher number for smaller 1 bed room places and smaller for bigger places. Why complain?
the furniture is from that fake software, but is the view fake too compared to 49c and 48c?
What is with all the ovals?
Why would someone rent this one on a lower floor with a fee vs. others available?
Whole building seems sad.
1000 square foot is admittedly big for a 1 bedroom but who lives here for 10,000 per month, and no view so it isn't a bachelor apartment, and no good layout for a couple with a baby
Plus it's Standing Room Only.
$1325 for a shared bath? No thanks!
I am the previous tenant of this unit. As of October 2016, there was a longstanding (~10 month) persistent bedbug problem emanating from the unit below. To my knowledge, at least 8 other units in the building have also had live bedbugs.
This building is in a good location, but possible renters beware. Packages are stolen on a regular basis.
Packages are sometimes left at the security house, but that's basically up to the whim of the security guards and delivery people. Some security guards are great, but according to the manager at the local USPS, others harass the delivery people, so they leave your packages at your front door to get stolen rather than at the security house. I've lost irreplaceable family items.
looking for a two year lease is the price firm?
Bryantpark has a pretty naive point of view.
The theoretical premium the current tenant will pay will survive for the 1st renewal period, and then the tenant is on notice - maybe momentum and circumstances keep a portion of this group through to a second renewal, but that's it. That's it.
Simple economic forces at work here. Moving costs time (finding somewhere new, packing, unpacking) and money (movers) - perhaps a few thousand, all up. Your landlord understands this, so they'll always try to raise your rent by some amount that's appealing compared to the costs you'd otherwise incur by moving.
Another way of saying this is that the apartment is worth more to its current tenant (who saves a move by staying there) than it is to any other tenant, who would have to move - so may as well have a go increasing the rent for the current tenant.
If you don't like it, you'll have to actually move to get a better deal, or buy an apartment. This is not an issue with your current management, all landlords do this. It's an issue with renting in general.
Same thing applies to your insurance, phone plan, etc, etc - loyalty, being a good tenant, doesn't come into it.
correction: "IS" going to raise your rent no matter what. The management resembles the management of the IRS or Post Office. It's incredibly bureaucratic and difficult to have any kind of discussion.
The amount of supply in Long Island City increasing astronomically with what must be at least 8-10 huge buildings and many smaller rental buildings being built. And yet Rockrose chooses to continue to raise everyone's rent, and not negotiate. It's a pretty decent building but know that this company isn't just going to raise your rent no matter what.
Really rough building to live in. The super centrally controls heat and air and they AC does not work for much of the summer or the super will not turn it on. As a result, the building is hot, and all windows need to be open, which makes it extremely loud and dirty given its location. Lovely building otherwise, but miserable place to live. The super is also a really difficult "character" and a "close talker" with the ladies...
Hi guys - wanting your input here, please. I moved to NYC two years ago after fleeing from a very abusive marriage, and I have been subletting from someone since then. I am ready to move on with my life and move in with my boyfriend in Queens, but through his financial manipulation and my inability to pay back the debt that was taken out in my name, my credit has tanked. Is there anything I can do to get an apartment with the guy I want to move in with? He has good credit, flawless rental history. I have flawless rental history as well.
Oh the good old days. Thanks 30yearsago!
That gas station was one of the last in Manhattan to give free air. After they closed I think it was only the Hess on 10th Ave and 46th St and the BP on Houston and Lafayette. I remember when everyone in 155 - 165 West 20th facing South would say "Oh, they're never going to build anything there".
I have friends who have lived in the building, and I've been over there quite a bit. All of them said great things about the building and the staff. Apartments are updated as tenants move out, so they remain fresh. As a visitor I always found the front door and desk staff polite, and the lobby is well maintained, if a bit bland. Were I looking for a rental, I'd consider it.
I find people's definition of luxury amusing, maybe because of my privilege. Related buildings, Glenwood buildings, etc. are great, but not a single one of them is my definition of "luxury". So then throw on the term "white glove", what a disconnect ... it's like you want a white shoe law firm and are considering Cellino and Barnes because you see them a lot on TV.*
Why are there alway so many rentals available in this building? What are the downsides? Looks good to me.
124, For heat, you may want to talk to the management company. They can certainly fix the window gaps. Replacement to double pane is unlikely for one apartKent. I would move if I did not have adequate heat.
It seems your main gripes are the elevators, windows and hot water.
Since all elevators have to be inspected, I assume the inspectors deem the elevators to be safe.
"Elevators in New York City have to be inspected at least three times every two years and tested at least once a year. "
The hot water issue and windows seem more like nuisance issues. How long does it take to get hot water? Waiting for hot water can seem like a loooong time, even if it's only a minute.
The windows again seem like a nuisance issue, but none the less annoying.
If you are paying market rate, I'd say it's time to move.
i live in the building and pay market rent as many others do. there are some stabilized apartments for sure but that doesn't excuse having safety hazards such as elevator door slamming on people, strollers, kids, dogs... it also doesn't justify having windows which are so beyond repair and don't close properly, which were allegedly ordered to be repaired/replaced... There is plenty of heat, but it's all going right out the windows, which is the issue here. Whats you see is a revolving door of tents who pay market rent, because building is not maintained and when you pay rent you expect windows to close, hot water to reach your bathroom quickly and an elevator which does not pose safety hazard.
When apartments are kept at half the market rate, you're not going to get much in the way of upkeep and renovations. Of course we don't know the specifics of this building and if it is primarily a rent stabilized building or market rate. Since it's a prewar I suspect many of the apartments are stabilized and some might be controlled.
Oh, how clever, the Socialist Republic of New York City. The most capitalist city on the globe and the toughest place to "make it" in the United States. But because we aren't Texas or Kansas ... give me a break, go back to wherever you came from that you think is better than this city.
My two cents:
- Friendly service and staff
- Great location and nice building
- Heavy construction noise not ideal for families, mgmt not helpful in managing this issue
- Amenities not all ready yet
If you are thinking of moving here, you should seriously reconsider. This building has seriously declined over the years. The apartments are way over-priced, there has been significant turnover of residents over the last few years, there where thefts in the building that the management tried to hide for months until residents demanded answers, the front of the building smells like dog piss, the halls often smell like pot, the management company is terrible and inflexible. STAY AWAY!!! I am moving out as soon as my lease it up!
PCV may be good for you esp. if you get one where the bathrooms are fixed up, toilet seats and all.
I have had friends who worked at NYU Langone when they went through training. The hospital helped them find housing in the area as they own some buildings and lease others.
Peter Cooper Village. Huge 1 BRs for that price.
Look up Truffles Tribeca. It is in your budget. Love this building!
i know another NYU resident who lived here. Very convenient for work and overall pretty decent building. Given the hours he greatly valued the convenience factor.
The building at 14-22 31st Avenue owned by Romar Realty, LLC is virtually uninhabitable due to intense chemical fumes coming from burning garbage in the apartment of the building superintendent. When I rented the second floor two-bedroom apartment, the fumes caused me to become ill on a daily basis and the Building Management could not or did not prevent these harsh chemical fumes from entering the apartment. I would strongly caution against renting from Romar Realty, LLC due to the lack of habitability of their building and their incompetence in improving at all any of the complaints rendered unto them. The building owner and manager are highly unprofessional and inconsiderate of the basic demands of habitability.
We have lived here since complex opened in early 2016. The landlord who seeks to hide his identity is simply terrible. we have had several problems that they simply say is not there problem, or ignore. in addition, although there is one Organization that owns all the rentals, 76 lefferts Place LLC, they defer to the board for many issues, such as security. it's just another way to create a run around an issue.
