First of all, Metro-Home, like many other illegal "hotels" in New York, only lease their apartments, they do not own them. We are the subtenants. These "hotels" say on the record that they only rent for 30 days minimum, but, off the record, they also rent by the day. They claim to be apartment rental companies, but they charge hotel fees. So the price quoted is only a percentage of the actual price.
310 E. 55th Street was expensive. I did like the 1 bedroom apartment because it was huge. One doorman was nice, another one seemed to be staring me down all the time in a rather hostile manner.
Because it's an illegal hotel, I began receiving eviction notices under the door. Apparently the landlord was habitually trying to harass Metro-Home, but the landlord told me Metro-Home wasn't paying their bills. I was threatened with being thrown out, so I ended up having to go down to housing court, talk to a lawyer, and insure I would not be evicted from an apartment I had already paid for in advance.
I had spoken to Metro-Home numerous times about this, but they were nonchalant and not apologetic. By the way, I was also very unwell physically at the time. and I had told them this.
To say this was all a big hassle is putting it mildly. When you stay in these places you take huge risks, and they're much too expensive to boot.
