We only lived here for 6 months because we were in the process of buying a house, but that was exactly what was so great. They have 6 month leases (that can be negotiated down in price, fyi). The walls are really thick so you can't hear anything from any of the neigbors. There is a nice exercise room in the basement that is almost always vacent (I can't figure that out). But the best thing is the doorman. He's just fantastic. So friendly, and I always felt like he was looking out for us. Also, there are pets allowed, so if you're not a fan of dogs this may not be the place for you because there are often big ones running around.
