Found 8 reports:

Had bed bugs while I was staying here about a year ago. They assured me the building was fine, but after some months my roommate found a bunch in his bed - he wasn't allergic to their bites and never noticed.

Bugs were taken care of, but it's nearly impossible to get rid of them. Found one right before moving out.


Just moved into the building as of November 1st and all bedbugs issues have been resolved.


We tried to get rid of the bugs for 3 months, to no avail. There was also a break out in the whole building shortly before we moved in, which everyone had been treated for, but the bugs came back. This building is crawling with them.


saw the mattress outside as well last week.. was definitely covered in bugs.

when you say the "entire apartment" is being fumigated.. does that mean the whole building (all apartment units?) Also, let's hope this means they'll be coming back more than once.. because proper extermination requires multiple visits.


Bed bugs back in force. The problem with this apartment is the fact that there are tenants on the 4th floor who live in filth. These tenants were in the building before this management company took over. I assume they are on rent control. Their apartment is in a complete state of disrepair and they currently have an infestation of bed bugs. A NASTY-looking mattress and a disgusting couch have all been thrown out recently. Bed bugs are also on the 2nd floor in at least one room. The entire

apartment is going to be exterminated in a few days, but it is unknown if the problem tenants will cooperate with all that needs to be done to have a successful extermination.

WE are in the cleear: I went through the nightmare bedbug experience in this building... BUT. My apartment ( and I'm assuming the building as a whole), has been totally clean for at least 8 months now.


Bedbugs are on every floor of this building. I refuse to visit anymore and have told mutual friends to avoid having tenants get to close to them or to stay over. One of the worst infestations I've seen in greater NYC.


Bedbugs migrated down from the 4th floor to the 3rd floor. Three exterminator visits later, we're still seeing the odd bug every now and again.
