My roommate and I moved into this place and found 2 bed bugs within 2 hours of living there. We left that same night immediately (forced to crash on friend's couches for months) and have since not spent a single night in this building. The landlord is a hot-head who refuses to fix the problem. He has refused to give any of our money back (first month's rent & security deposit) and has since rented it out to two other tenants who left within three days for the same reasons. We have tried to speak
to the downstairs neighbors, but nobody on the bottom two floors speak any English. We've seen the inside of they're apartments when they answered the door and they are disgusting, so we're assuming they are either ignorant to the issue or don't care. One of our (former) neighbors across the hall reported having 19 bed bug bites on her arm at one time. The entire building is infested. I am guessing the restaurant underneath the apartments is too. Absolutely the WORST landlord/moving/living situation of my life. STAY AWAY unless you want months of sleepless nights, lawsuits and aggressive phone calls for your land lord.
Even if this building wasn't riddled with bed bugs I wouldn't advise anyone to live here. I doubt this landlord would do as much as change a light bulb for his tenants. He is the definition of a slum-lord. There is no other way of saying it, he is a hot-headed, selfish, prick.
