STAY AWAY FROM 9 E 18TH STREET! I was so excited to find this place. The lofts are absoultely beautiful for the price. I work in the city and I found the commute to be relatively easy. However, only after 30 days of moving in I felt extremely harassed and uncomfortable. The landlord is incredibly rude and condescending. I found another apartment immediately. After moving in I stored my boxes in the recycle area and was questioned about it. Then, the former tenant came by to retrieve mail...she heard us speaking and a few days later asked me if I had a roomate! Wow. Then...I locked myself out and she was livid that she had to open the door for me...wow again. I lived in a managed building in NYC for 7 years before living there and was always regarded as one of tbe best tenant. This landlord thougbt i was a fool...but she was mistaken. Don't let the ambiance fool you..unless yoh are over 50, retired, or don't minf tip toeing around your home, STAY AWAY. This place is absolute hell..especially if you are a private person. I have never felt so insulted in my life. Dont do it. These people are horrible.
