Nice apt in parklike setting

Stuytown is nice and quiet because it has a small park in the middle and doesn't feel like it is right in the center of a busy city. Management is prompt when we need something fixed. For the first year, internet is included for free.

StuyTown is great

I've had a great time at StuyTown. I actively avoided it during my apartment search, until one broker took me to see the apartments. I immediately fell in love. The apartments are some of the biggest you will find for that price in all of NY.

No serious complaints

It kind of feels stale, but it definitely gets the job done. Huge bedroom with a walk in closet and another closet and the windows have a view of the empire State building. Elevator and laundry room downstairs (though that's $5/load). Lots of other amenities that make it a pretty easy place to live. Our water was brown for a second once.

Love it here!

I love living in StuyTown. It is a distinct neighborhood from where the office is in midtown and requires commuting by subway, but my commute to the office from 14th Street and Avenue A takes about 30 minutes door-to-door. StuyTown is very much its own community -- there is a lot of greenspace in between the buildings, there are two gyms for residents, an outdoor gym behind my building, basketball courts, playgrounds, etc. There are several resident services (i.e. child care, dog walkers, cleaning services, on-site maintenance workers). When I work late and take a car service home from the office, it takes between 10-20 minutes to drive home, depending on traffic. The neighborhood feels safe, generally.

Couple - moved from Chicago with dog

Stuytown was perfect for us because we only had one day in NYC to find our apartment before we moved here from Chicago. Since the property is so large, Stuytown is run like a well oiled machine, making it easy to take care of the rental setup process from a different city. It is also the perfect place if you are moving to New York with a dog because there are walking paths and grass within the Stuytown community. Another bonus is that Stuytown is within walking distance to Stern.

Love it!

Stuyvesant Town is worth the slightly higher rent it charges. The apartments are renovated and well-sized for NYC. Maintenance is super responsive - if anything goes wrong, it is fixed same-day. The amenities are also really nice, especially for busy business school students. They have package delivery to your door (behind a locked entrance, so you don't worry about them getting stolen); they shovel during snowstorms; there is 24/7 security of the property; they have seasonal events (farmers markets, ice skating rink, holiday decorations).

Convenient, quiet neighborhood

There is a NYU shuttle(Route C) that runs around the complex M-Th mornings. Very convenient to go to school.
Pretty quiet neighborhood.

Great Value for Students

Stuytown is a unique place to live in NYC. It is good value for students with roommates and the management is easy to work with. I recently moved out because it was too far for me to get to school, but otherwise I would have stayed.

Midtown Reviews

Neighborhood is great. very safe. There is a 24 hour Duane Reade right on the corner, a yoga studio next door, dry cleaner next door and Gristedes one block away. Lots of restaurants just a few blocks down. A movie theatre in Kips bay. Indian grocery stores and restaurants on Lexington ave and 28th street. Trader Joe's around there somewhere too. The closest train station is Grand Central which can get quite crowded and is a 10-12 minute walk away from the building.
I walk about 20 minutes to school, but it’s a walk through a great part of town. I have easy access to subway lines, lots of grocery stores, and I enjoy running on the west side highway. It’s also nice to be a close distance (but not necessarily TOO close) to Penn Station for travel purposes.
The neighborhood has a ton of cool bars and restaurants around along with grocery shops like Trader Joe's. Its vibrant but not a party location like some of the places in either Village so its never too loud.
Pros: close to both the ACE and the 7 subway lines; Amtrak/NJ Transit at Penn Station; and Bolt and Mega Bus by the Javits Center. The High Line is right up the street from my apartment, which takes you straight to Meatpacking and Chelsea Market. Lots of restaurants and bars nearby in Chelsea. Also a short walk to Whole Foods and 6th avenue shopping.

Cons: A bit of a walk to get to grocery stores, coffee shops, and pharmacies (~3-5 blocks). Lots of construction! Hudson Yards construction is 24/7; and the construction on 28th street between 10th and 11th avenue also goes into the weekend. The Scores and Eagle Bar noise isn't as bad, but it can get noisy on late weekend nights, with drunk and rowdy patrons smoking outside.
My apartment experience has been very good so far. It is in a very safe neighborhood and due to the location in East Midtown Manhattan, my building is in the center of public transportation, restaurants, stores, Bloomingdale's, movie theaters, gyms, etc. The only down side is that due to the way one or two of the streets nearby are located, one has to watch for pedestrian accidents as my mother had an accident when she was crossing the street and had the right of way. It can also be noisy but that's part of living in Manhattan.
PROS
* Easily accessible from a majority of transit hubs.
* Tremendous investment on the part of private and public entities, so there's a lot of development and renewarl.
* Proximity to Javits Center, Penn Station, and Time Square make it heavily policed and quite safe.

CONS
* NOISE--from the Lincoln Tunnel, the Javits, the River, the tourists, but above all else the construction
* Proximity to Javits Center, Penn Station, and Time Square can suck the character out of the location. Don't move here if you're looking to easily find a neighborhood with it's own personality (your local coffee place is going to be Starbucks and your local Italian place is going to be a hike if you want anything other than Sbarro/Olive Garden).
I think that Hell's Kitchen is one of the most underrated neighborhoods at Stern. It is a great location, between Stern and Central Park. During the summer, it's perfect! You can walk up to Central Park, go to the Hudson River, and avoid Times Square. The neighborhood has a lot of restaurants and bars as well - which make it a fun place to live. The commute to Stern is short - about 30 minutes. The only con is that the supermarkets in this area are slightly expensive (i.e. Whole Foods), and the open markets close pretty early.
Great. We live definitely closer to the West side - as in by Union Square. The farther east you go the idea is it becomes less safe. Lots to do, lots to see, and a straight shot to school
