Nice Building, Overpriced, Bad Management, Cheap

At first glance, everything seems great in this building. The rooms are nice, high ceilings, great views, etc. To be fair, the apartment is very comfortable to live in. However, there are many issues. First, at this price, it should be comfortable and spacious so you expect that. Second, the building was clearly made quite cheaply as many things break. We've had multiple leaks and a broken pipe under the kitchen sink.

On the plus side, the Super is very nice, and some of the doormen are very nice, and the handymen are very nice. However, some doorman are rude to tenants and guests and generally unhelpful (strange as that should be the only real qualification for a job). Also, some of the other building staff (rent office) are terrible; they become visibly annoyed that you would ask their help as if doing their job was not part of their union contracts.

The building is also very cheap. They nickel and dime you for everything: lockouts are $25 for someone to open the door, the gym they show you on a walkthrough is actually not included in the rent, it costs another $80 and the equipment is never maintained; $17.50 to replace lights in your apartment, $55 to replace the smoke detector... all of this stuff is never explicitly mentioned to tenants, you just wake up one day and you owe them another $500 after being there for a year. It is sort of what you would expect for a low rate slum lord in Chinatown, not a fancy TriBeCa management company building... and in case you were wondering that management company is Jack Parker Corp. I certainly will be avoiding them in the future.

Lastly, the entrance to the building is just plain stupid. It's like an urban camouflage wall with a hidden door. 100% cost without benefit.

About Tribeca

The uber-fashionable and upscale neighborhood of Tribeca gives you all the perks and entertainment access of Manhattan without the congestion. Its cobblestone street are lined with the trendiest restaurants and low-key nightlife hotspots, such as the retro Odeon. Weekends are also a bit quieter, but...

Tribeca is a decent neighborhood, pretty good restaurants and bars, but it really depends on what part you are in. It lacks some basic convenience like grocery stores, pharmacies etc. if you are coming from the north where 34 Desbrosses (Truffles Tribeca) is located.

From Truffles, you are also a long walk to transit, expect 10 minutes to get to the 123 or ACE. Not very convenient unless you live in an Uber which most people in the building use frequently.
theres a reason why everyone is jealous I live in tribeca, because its the best. chill and quiet ...in Manhattan. Unlike anywhere else. It still has its less than great parts but slowly but surely changing to being the best in manhattan
Pros: safe, quiet, good restaurants, near the water, close to subways
Cons: mostly families, only 2 small grocery stores, a lot of retail shops closing due to high rent
Fairly quiet. Location is A+. Walking distance to school, bars, restaurants, etc. Great neighborhood to walk around in.
Tribeca is amazing to live in for restaurants, bars and shopping. Also the location of the building is perfect because you can turn in different directions when leaving and be in a different neighborhood in a block or two which really allows for variety and diversity.
Close to subway, grocery stores and great restaurants. Right next to a park and the river. A bit pricey but worth it if you have a close group of friends. Family community so there isn't much of a night life.
Amazing neighborhood. Beautiful and so much around. Wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
