Property: Normandie Court at 225 East 95th Street, Rating: 4, Rentenna Score: 83 (Excellent!)
Pros: Dormandie court was perfect for when I lived there for two years. They allow you to chop up the apartments many times over making it affordable. 2 minute walk to the 6 train, Brother Jimmys and grocery store below. Doorman, roofdeck and gym.
Cons: They raise prices fairly quickly on you so lock down a two year lease if you can. It is still 95th street and a cab from the village is hella expensive.
Property: 1954 First Avenue, Rating: 4, Rentenna Score: 51 (Average)
Pros: Cheap, Big Apartments, Interior furnishings are very nice.
Cons: Far From Subway, Common Areas Poorly Maintained, Poor Service from Building Staff
Property: 395 South End Avenue, Rating: 3, Rentenna Score: 91 (Premier!)
Pros: Quiet, nice-sized apartments, close to most subways, easy to catch a cab, neighborhood is getting better restaurants
Cons: 4 Elevators, but 2+ were always broken;
Property: Herald Towers at 50 West 34th Street, Rating: 2, Rentenna Score: 89 (Excellent!)
Pros: near every subway
Cons: in a complete tourist area, roof deck is rarely open and when it is its only open until 7 pm
Property: Soho Court at 301 Elizabeth Street, Rating: 4, Rentenna Score: 86 (Excellent!)
Pros: Amenities are awesome and I love the neighborhood (except when I'm trying to sleep - see below). Rent isn't cheap, but I think it's worth it for what you get.
Cons: Building management used to be very inattentive, and elevators were breaking down all the time. In the past year or so management has clearly made an effort and has really improved. Beware fitful sleepers: at times you can hear ALL KINDS of noise from the street below.
