We lived in this apartment complex for three years and had friends living in two other apartments in this complex for one year. Our friends were smart and moved out after the first year because of the living conditions. All of us had rodents and leaking roofs. When we first moved in, there were cigarette butts on the carpet and bathroom sink. They told us they shampooed the carpet, which was obviously a lie so we had to do it ourselves to try and get the smell out. We complained about the roof for two years and they did nothing about it. The mildew smell got so bad that we had to call the Colonie Department of Health and after they showed up they finally started to fix the building. The Dept of Health told us they're there all the time telling them to fix things. The pilot light on the hot water in our building stopped working and for two weeks we had cold water in the morning because maintenance didn't come over until around 9am each day to light the pilot light (which is after regular people need to be at work, showered). We had to fight them tooth and nail to get them to give us money back on our rent because of this inconvenience, and they only gave us $30.
Cons: management is rude, apartments smell and are very outdated, don't go to the pool unless you want to hear the ""f"" word out of 8 year old children
