I believe that the two reports above refer to the Manhattan 2 Gold address, not the Brooklyn one. You may want to copy your reports over to the correct address, where I posted mine (bed bugs in the OLDER 2 Gold building).

My roomate and I also have been bitten by bedbugs in another apartment in the new tower at 2 Gold St. It is disgusting and they required us to capture the bugs in order for them to send the exterminator, which took us a long time to do. They came, we followed the entire procedure, bought a new mattress and before this saw many doctors - but today we still have bedbugs. This is disgusting and we are extremely frustrated. We are going to pursue legal action against the building. Please write on t
his page if you also have been bitten and think you may have bedbugs at 2 Gold St. By the way the zipcode is 10038 not the one listed above.
My roommate and I suspected bed bugs because we were both being bit during the night. We told the building who called an exterminator who came in with a dog to sniff out and confirm the bugs.
Management is acting very lax about this whole situation. They are paying for the exterminator but not the other things that go with it (dry cleaning, stuff we have to throw out, etc.).
We thought it was just our apartment, but one of the building workers let it slip that there's a legit problem in the
tower we live in (a new tower recently built earlier this year).
If they aren't going to empty out the building and fumigate all units, this problem will not go away. At this time, it appears as though management is trying to cover this up.
