Found 12 reports:

I've lived here a number of years and have been living with bedbugs in our apartment since day one. We find them in our clothes and bags when we go places, and are pretty fed up. We are pretty sure this is a permanent situation of the building since the exterminating practices are pretty rudimentary and typical (spraying the corners with chemicals that the bugs are resistant to). Save yourself a headache and take any promises to solve the problem with a grain of salt. It is guaranteed that you w

ill have bed bugs if you move here. Not worth it.

here i am again... for the third time... yes, the third time.

After my first report, they came back, i moved into a different room and it subsided for a month or two.

They just did a full building spray a week ago. just woke up with bites and found one in my bed. fed up with this place.

I suggest not moving into this apartment, or string of apartments unless you are ready to have some late night visitors.


5.20.12 Had bedbugs...it was no fun... it was only happening in 1 room. The landlords were good about taking care of the problem. 2 sprays later, havent gotten bit yet. I feel like this whole building is a full of them though...not very clean

Bed bugs have been reported now on the 3rd floor of this building. Problem has been continuing throughout the year and the landlord has no interest in fixing it. If you are going to move here, dont trust the landlord when they give you a fake document that says they that the building is clear. Also, ask them to sign the bed bug history document as required by law on nyc.


Dear false alarm,

I think we are neighbors. We have found bed bugs repeatedly throughout the year. They stop coming after a while when the exterminator comes, but they are not going anywhere. Found one todays ago on the towel in the kitchen. Found one today on my desk while I was working. Finally deciding it might be the time to move out. Bed Bugs win.

To whoever is going to move into this building, the apartment might be nice, the rent might be a little cheaper, but it's not worth the hel

l that you will go through.

Dear false alarm,

Glad to see you stopped using all CAPS.

There are many apartments in the building. The bedbugs have not traveled to every apartment, and will take longer to make it into the remodeled apartments.

They travel to the nearest, easiest food source. And they can hibernate and go without food (blood) for a year and a half.

The point is, anyone moving into this building or adjacent buildings should know that it has had a bad infestation, and the chances are small that th

e problem was eradicated. And most exterminators don't know how to combat them - if they did, there wouldn't be a bedbug epidemic.

And if you check the map on this site, the general area is infested. I wonder who owns all those buildings...

So, anyone living there is taking a risk re: time, stress and money.

I moved into this building, I called down a professional exterminator not from the landlord.He checked my apartment inside out and said there are no bed bugs...
You scared me.... false alarm..


The post from 10/21/2010 about the 'GREAT LANDLORD!!!!' seems a little suspicious... maybe it's the all caps?

I lived in this building, my roommate made the original post -- it is infested with bedbugs. The poor guy downstairs reported waking up with "12 bedbugs" on his chest. Unfortunately they made their way to our apartment.

The exterminators did not know how to handle them, and in any case gets paid each time they spray. I learned from a bedbug expert that one of the chemicals they use

d actually *increases* the fertility of the female bedbug.

In any case obviously bedbugs are immune to current chemicals or they wouldn't be a problem. And/or the chemicals do not reach the eggs. And/or the bedbugs can hibernate for up to 18 months.

The infestation was reported to the city, and is on record.

We had to move out, and spent a couple thousand dollars getting our stuff fumigated with vikane gas.

In other news, the landlord reportedly owns like 32 buildings and keeps them in various states of disrepair.

GREAT LANDLORD!!!!
NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH BED BUGS.
LANDLORD HAS A GREAT EXTERMINATOR THAT COMES EVERY MONTH.....


Live in a railroad apt at this location. Found bedbugs in early February ('10). Found out from others in the building that it has a history of infestation. Sigh.
