Do not--under any circumstances--move into this building! It is completely invested and Sky Management does nothing besides send a nice--but very ineffective--exterminator who has to be reminded to come and spray. I woke up one morning with twenty bites and that wasn't the worst of it. They nested in my mattress, box spring, and laid eggs in my sheets!! It was DISGUSTING. I had no idea about this problem before I moved in. And I'm moving out asap!

From what I hear, this is an issue in the entire building. We have been dealing with bed bugs for a year now. Our management company knew about the problem before allowing us to move in and did nothing. We have contacted them several times, and their only response has been to send a clearly ineffective exterminator (since the bugs have not gone away). My one roommate has them particularly bad in her room and wakes up with giant welts on her arms and legs on a regular basis. We see them in a show
er, on our walls, and crawling on our furniture. We are all horrified that we are going to bring them to our new apartment (obviously we are moving out). The exterminator says our problem is "slight at best" because he doesn't see the usual effects of a bed bug infestation. My recommendation to anyone who checks this is, do not move into this building under any circumstances.
This report was originally registered under the incorrect addgress, for the 253 East 77th in Brooklyn. To be clear, this is the 253 East 77th Street in Manhatten on the upper east side. Please disregard the other post, I was unable to remove it.
