Bed Bugs do not trend on this street! People can get bed bugs from school, neighbors, subway, by borrowing clothes, having people over...anywhere. Be careful before you start blaming the street, the building or landlord. If they have exterminated your apt, have taken care of it to the best of their ability... than obviously someone staying in the apt is either it keeping up with the exterminator's recommendation or they did not follow guidelines adequately. I live on Lincoln in this building 208
0 for years and I have NEVER had any issues with bed bugs or any bugs for that matter! I am not the only tenant that has lived here for more than 2 years comfortably. To my knowledge there are no vacant apts here.
The landlord checks on me routinely and always asks if there are any issues. My only complaint is that it can be hard to reach her since she is sick but when you persistently remind her daily she comes through every time. I will defend this property as long as I live her since they are good people and dont deserve some young people with bad attitudes ruining the reputation,
Moved in Sept. 1st, just noticed bites on Monday morning. Now, on Tuesday they have grown at least 4 times as bad. I'm going to give it my best shot to get rid of them but I'm not too optimistic as it seems this whole neighbourhood is riddled with bedbugs. As nice of a street as it is, I would consider staying away from Lincoln Ave as bedbugs seem to trend here.

Finally got rid of them.
We steamed, washed/dried everything.
We used caulking around the baseboards.
Exterminator came twice.
We bought the stuff he used off ebay and sprayed ourselves.
only after this did they go away.
I wouldn't wish this on anyone.

Just found bedbugs.
Caught one that just bite me.
Looks exactly like the pictures.
Full of blood.
Seems like we are getting bite each night for the last several days.
