I have no idea what the crazy things about the caretaker is all about; he's definitely the best part of living here. Deals with rowdies from the park that spill over here very well, very quick to help with maintenance issues in your apartment - much better than other caretakers I've had. Very easy to get a hold of. I feel the 'dirtiness' of the common areas is just a bad side effect of it being a really old building. I often see the caretaker vacuuming during the day and painting and keeping the sidewalk clear in the winter. It's a very quiet building for its age, I find the noise is mostly drunk kids outside (there's a park next door). It's not a great apartment, very small, very old, but definitely affordable.

BED BUGS ARE AN ONGOING PROBLEM!!!
Common areas (entrance, halls, etc) are always filthy.
Caretaker often tries to intimidate people especially when he is drinking. Not sure how he still has a job looking after this building after all of the 'incidents' he has been involved in. Very disturbing.

I've been here two years. The apartments are quite small, and the hallways are not always as clean as I would like. However, the location is fantastic, and I have a recently renovated suite which myself and the previous tenant both kept clean.

The complaints about the caretaker: honestly, I think some of this is exaggerated or fabricated. Like any caretaker, if you are friendly and nice to him, then he is nice to you. I have had no problems with him. I find it highly unlikely that he enters my suite when I'm not home, and the idea of cameras being hidden in my suite is laughable. I have had all of my concerns dealt with quickly. When my toilet broke, he ran out, bought the part, and fixed it the same day; my bathroom flooded because someone two floors above me overflowed something in their bathroom and he came by to check that out immediately; he lends us tools whenever we need them; the washing machine broke on me once and he had someone out the same day to fix it. I had to wait awhile though for my sink to be fixed when it was leaking, but that wasn't exactly an emergency, and most of the wait was on the plumber. When I moved in we discovered that the contractors didn't reinstall the phone line after renovating, so I called Sussex and they had someone come out to fix it within a week. I also really appreciate that he always keeps the sidewalks clear of snow and ice in the winter.

Being an old character building, noise travels quite easily. There usually aren't any parties - there was one once on the second floor, and the caretaker shut it down within half an hour. If you face the field on the east side of the building, you may be bothered by people passing by on Friday or Saturday nights. The caretaker often goes outside and deals with it if they overstay their welcome. I usually just drown them out with my fan or air conditioner.

Personally, I think this is a good starter block, especially for students. I would not recommend this block to anybody who has a car -- parking is terrible in this area!

Building manager makes me uncomfortable. Halls are dirty. Noise travels easily. I was lied to when I moved in. Was told it was a quiet block and it is a very noisy building, any time of the day but, there is an entertainment factor since a lot of partying tends to go on in the building.
