On Saturday 1st November 2014 we noticed a bed bug crawling on our bed in broad daylight in our apartment on the 5th floor. The blood that showed up after squashing it left no room for doubt.
This confirmed our fears. My partner has been noticing red itchy blotches on her left arms for some weeks now. We naively thought it might have been mosquitoes...
After speaking to our realty company and our super, he confirmed that the 2nd floor was also infested by bed bugs. And now we read that it
has been happening in this building for quite some time. As well as other building on this street.
We have been completely mislead by signing a paper before moving in, that stated there there was NO history of bed bugs in this building. A complete lie obviously.
Be VERY careful before moving into 208 East 25th street. It has a history of bedbug infestation.

Lived in this building, and had a confirmed bedbug issue. This building does not disclose their persistent bedbug issues (confirmed with multiple tenants that they also had issues) on the official disclosure when you sign your lease. Please be VERY careful.

I lived there for 1.5 years. I had my apt sprayed several times, dry cleaned ALL my clothing several times and to no avail. Basically, there are rent controlled apartments in the building that management wants to renovate and therefore I don't think the bed bug treament those tenanats receive is a aggressive as the treatment residents paying market rents receive. This is my hunch as after treatment the bed bugs would always return. When I looked closely I spotted twice the bugs crawling down my
wall from the apt above (rent controlled and unsealed - the tenants complained that the floors had cracks). It was a recurring nightmare. Our neighbors below us also had them despite several treatments.
