Worst place ever!

It's so far from subways, restaurants, grocery stores.
It's got really low ceilings and feels cramped.
It's got too many pets in the building.

But the worst part is the management. They've switched hands many times in the past 5 years but none have been close to normal, competent, or good business sensed.

The lower level guys aren't empowered to make decisions and any of the higher ups have no idea how to run a building. Tenants have stayed potentially out of discomfort of moving in NYC but overall, the building is not worth the money.

The view is nice but does not make up for what the apartment feels like. Everything is outdated, the floors are old faux wooden ones.

Amenities are the gym and lounge, but again, these do not make up for the poor management and cramped space.

Don't be fooled by the large entrance lobby with doormen.

Stay away!

Awesome Place!

I absolutely love this building and the unit. The unit itself is very spacious, and the rent is far lower than any comparable two bedroom apartments in midtown. The building responds immediately if there are any problems, and the doormen are very helpful and kind. The gym in the building is also great, and while it would be nice if membership was free, the fee is very affordable (~45/month). The only downside to this building is the location. It is very far west, but the building offers a free shuttle M-F that goes across town on 42nd street during AM and PM rush hour. It's frequent and very easy to use. The new 7 train stop on 34th and 11th is also helpful, but it is still about a 7 minute walk to the stop. The corner deli (Sunac) is great but a little pricey, and there is a Food Emporium and a liquor store very nearby. The building is also great for pets, as there is a doggy daycare right on the block.

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.
A mix of city and residential. It can get a little louder than I would like, particularly during the weekends. It's close to a lot of good food places, but they are kind of pricey.
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.
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
Very densely populated area. Not much greenery but the park overlooking the NYC skyline is amazing. Lot's of Cuban and Latin American cuisine.
I've lived on the Upper East Side, the East Village, and Murray Hill - so I thought I wouldn't like living in an area so close to tourist attractions like Port Authority and Times Square. But the area pleasantly surprised me - there are great restaurants and bars nearby and it's not that touristy unless you walk towards 8th ave. We're a 10 minute walk to the Hudson, where there are biking and running paths, and a dog park.
Great neighborhood with a lot of restaurants, bars, shops. A lot of young people in the neighborhood. Being so close to Grand Central is a plus.
