Very affordable for the area, a little tight for 3 bedroom, management is distant, overall fine for the money

Relatively satisfied compared to monthly rent. Interior is remodeled but the building itself is old. Elevators, securities and management could improve.

The building is older and Art Deco so it has a character that I like, and doesn't have many amenities which I would prefer not to pay for anyway. So my preferences differ from people seeking new buildings with amenities. I like the more authentic and less stale feel if the building. The units are clean and attractively laid out, with high ceilings. What did you like: The high ceilings. What did you like less: The old, dark beige carpeting in the bedrooms.
