Hi.. I'm supposed to move in (16th floor) soon and am pretty nervous due to the recent posts. Anyone have updates on the bedbug situation?

I live on the 14th floor. On Feb 8 I received a notice from the building that there is evidence of bedbugs in my area. This week they will be treating my unit as a preventative measure. I have been checking rather obsessively and don't see any bed bugs and have no bites. I am happy they are trying to prevent the spread.

Just walked outside by the dumpsters for this building and a bunch of furniture has been thrown out with "Bed Bugs" written on each piece of furniture. Don't know which apartment it's from.

I live on one of the higher floors on 655 Broadview and have been bitten a few times. The bites are clearly from bedbugs - the usual three red lumps under the arms.
I'm disappointed because there has been no communication from the building managers regarding the infestation in this building, they are trying to keep a lid on things.

Had been getting hive like bumps on my arms in early november, and thought it was an allergic reaction. On November 22, my partner started getting the same type of bumps (bites) on her arms as well. We notified the supers immediately, and they were really great about it. we received trays with powder in them to catch any bed bugs that might try to climb on the bed. We asked to be sprayed as soon as possible, and this was accommodated for us (sprayed on november 25 2010). we are getting spra
