August 23, 2011 Update: We need to dispute the negative posting against the apartment building at 73 E. 2nd Street, NY 10003. We are an NY family helping out-of-town friends research apartments for their college student. Over the past weeks, our friends diligently looked at dozens of apartments in the East Village/NYU area, and, hands down, the 73 E 2nd St building was the best. Not only are the apartments large and private on this beautiful street, and full of bright students and working

professionals living there, the kind landlord personally showed them this building, patiently answered all questions and concerns, and gave them every contact number they would need if they lived there, including his own phone number, as well as phone contacts for building superintendent, realty agent, carpenter/repairman, and exterminator. During friendly interchange with tenants during the site visit, none expressed any problems with their apartments, and all of their mattresses & furnishings were intact.
When the unfortunate website entry here was brought to our attention by another concerned out-of-town parent also looking to rent there, we immediately called the landlord for information. Within a few hours, the landlord, agent and building manager had scheduled an inspection visit with the licensed company, "Terminate Control," located a few blocks away. The prospective renter was also present at the inspection, which was very detailed and professional. The written Service Report concluded that NO BED BUGS WERE FOUND. The Inspector also carefully searched for ALL rodent and insect activity, and NO ACTIVITY was found for any pest.
Based on our documented findings this week, we can only assume that the negative reports are erroneous, and do not apply to the current good situation regarding this building.
All persons living in even the most expensive apartments, hotels, homes or any public place, need to realize that any person can unknowingly be the culprit or source of an insect infestation. This is why apartment managers ask tenants to please only bring in new mattresses, etc., so their buildings can remain free of pests. However, it is impossible for landlords, hotel managers, etc., to enforce the items their clients bring in. It is then extremely frustrating for the landlord when the blame is placed on them, especially when it is an honest, responsive landlord such as the one at this building of which we are writing.
The City of New York has very strict building codes for this and all Multi-Dwelling Buildings, and they inspect here regularly. If a tenant ever has a problem contacting a manager or landlord for any concern, it is suggested that the tenant first contact the City of NY Dept. of Housing, Code Enforcement Division. People will get faster and more accurate results by "going to the source" legally, rather than by going to a blog and posting something that may be inaccurate and even hurtful to someone if a person is being wrongfully accused.
Sincerely,
J. Lee and family

bedbugs throughout the entire building. Landlord refuses to do anything about it. I had to throw away all of my clothes, mattress and bed string. Stay away from this building!!!! It is a nightmare.


Bed bugs found in me and my two roommates mattresses, sheets, and bedding and couch. This was the worst experience ever. The landlord of this building is impossible to get in touch with and the supers are constantly changing. Needless to say, the problem was not solved and when we moved out we had throw away all furniture.
