Dirty, Disgusting, Dangerous
This disgusting hole is unfit for human habitation. The ground floor lobby is the ONLY part of the entire building that has been properly maintained. The filthy, single-room so-called apartment boasted an unusable closet with walls leaking mold; an ancient, heavily gouged wooden floor spattered with black gobs of unknown goo; water that ran rusty brown out of the bathroom and kitchen; a bathroom floor with green mold all over the floor and Rustoleum-painted walls that stuck in brown patches to my shower curtain AND SKIN; a broken window missing a piece 8" X 4" that the manager refused to replace; an ancient, leaky gas stove that lacked all its oven racks as well any temperature markings on the dials; and a foul stench of urine and marijuana from the prior tenant. Even the manager acknowledged she fears going to the 1st and 2nd floors due to pervasive odors of various illegal drugs. Only the tiny bathroom window had a screen. The heat runs 24/7 and is stifling even in the coldest weather. Hideous views of the dumpsters and one's neighbors in their bathrooms. Orange Kleig lights glare through the inadequate blinds. All night long, low-flying airplanes roar and nearby CSX trains crash, while gunshots, shouts, and screams abound on the sidewalks. The supposed free telephone service provides only local calls and cannot even make toll-free calls. One tiny elevator with room for 4 - 5 people serves the entire 80+ unit building, so long waits are the rule. I rented this abominable sty sight unseen, trusting the duplicitous manager's promises. After two days, tried to break the lease and was bullied with threats of a lawsuit. After filing four courteous, written complaints with the manager, she accused me of harassing her and filed an eviction notice the day AFTER she cashed my second month's rent check. Absolutely the most HORRIFYING, NASTY place I have ever lived, even in my college days.
