Hey Noo, that was the building, but i didn't see that. It doesn't sound like the greatest place to live anymore. I guess if it is too good to be true, it is.

How in the world does what happened to the people in the story have anything to do with you?

It says that they were not rent stabilized, but I have to imagine that there was some impediment to the management company raising the rent or they would have gotten rid of the tenants that way instead of through the courts. If your rent was going to rise from $1400 to $2000 or something upon renewal of your lease, you'd leave as soon as your lease expired.

All that whining about "ulcers", "headaches from paint", etc. is garbage. Everyone in a legal dispute is always "suffering" from health-related issues when they get in front of the press or when the judge doesn't tell them to shut up about it if they are allowed to speak in court.

The tenant claims she wasn't a nuisance, but we don't hear from any of her neighbors or the management company. Who knows what she/they were really like.

If you can get the unit you are describing for $1400, that sounds pretty decent depending on what utilities you are paying, so don't let that article affect your decision, at all. With that said, it's not a slam dunk.
