It's an ok place to stay
Connecticut Heights is an older apartment building. I lived in building one and it smelled bad and had old carpet. I did not feel safe walking into my building and it often creeped me out. Management was unorganized. The apartment is basically in the middle of no where and is not walkable. I lived here because it was affordable and within walking distance from the law school.
Easy Access to Metro
Steps from the metro and about 5-6 stops from howard. Surrounding area has target,mall,movies, and LA fitness all within walking distance. Parking is 60 a month but this is a good place to live if you don’t have a car. Would recommend to avoid signing leases in summer as the price will be significantly. I got this price on March
Pricey but awesome location
It is a great location but is a bit pricey honestly.
Definitely a comfortable living situation. Minor issues.
The apartment management company is extra friendly, and would always try to work out any issues or "situations" you might have, even if it has to do with your rent. Try and find some HU students that live in the building, and have a great school year
Convenient Brooklyn Living
The Brooklyner is an easy commute to NYU's main campus with the R, A, C, and F lines within a block of the building. It is also next to NYU Tandon with access to the free NYU bus and a Citibike dock out front for those days when you feel like getting a little exercise on the way to or from school. This building is also chock-full of amenities like a roof deck with multiple grills, game room with pool, and gym. Many apartments even have laundry in-unit.
This is an amazing location (court house metro) with lots of coffee shops, restaurants and grocery shopping nearby. The building is nice inside and the staff is very helpful. It is expensive but ends up being a way better bang for your buck than living in DC itself. You would never be able to get a place this nice in DC with an in unit washer dryer, directly across from a metro station, with this much space.
Great for Families
My wife and I have lived in this apartment complex since the start of my medical school career (3 years). It is pretty expensive, but we find it hard to leave with all of the amenities and location. It is situated directly across the street from the PG Mall, in between 2 grocery stores, and directly on top of the PG metro station. The price is expensive for a couple living on their own, but can be cut in half if you do not mind living with a roommate.
Really convenient location; metro is literally in your backyard. Cozy, cute set up. Really good space. Responsive leasing staff.
Decent amenities but super old apt interior
Amenities look pretty on the outside, but there are no cups, plates, etc in the club house and you have to pay for laundry. Crappy coffee is only served first thing in the am. Gym has no free weights. Actual apartment is super old with crooked lights, crappy appliances, etc. Neighbors are super loud and have parties (feels like a college dorm).
Best neighborhood in DC
Corcoran House has a great staff - 24 hour front desk and maintenance. Most of the residents stay in the building for several years because the rent is reasonable and the staff is great. What really can't be beat, though, is the neighborhood. Dupont is a short walk (or GUTS Bus) to campus, but it's also a short walk (or metro ride) to anywhere in the City. The building is half a block from a bikeshare dock and 2 blocks from the metro. Really the best of all worlds
Not the closest but convenient and still easy to get to
The office is kind. The front desk will accept all packages and even assist with extra large packages. The gym is older but has everything that you need. Being close to the mall and Pentagon Row make everything accessible.
Good experience - close to GUTS bus.
Small-ish Complex that is Everything I Need
The overall complex is much smaller than most apartment complexes in Irvine (50 units versus 100+). The units are nicely sized and our bedroom easily fits a queen bed and desk. Mark and Ralph (people the leasing office) are great and very friendly. They take the time to learn all the tenets names and are very responsive to emails/people dropping into the office. Any maintenance stuff is handled quickly and I haven't had any issues with noise (I do live on the top 3rd floor though, so not sure how noise is for levels 1 and 2). The complex feels very safe and parking in the garage is very easy.
I love my apartment building! The entire staff is awesome! Love the area and the views from my studio.
