Living here with throught Oakwookd for temp housing as I just moved to NYC. Building is in a great location. 1 bedroom apartment I am in is normal, not NY sized which is great. I have always stayed in Oakwood Corp housing with one exception when I lived in Wisconsin and I wated with Bridgestreet (never again!).
Ok, here is the real skinny-->
Pros: Location, decent gym, convenience (grocery stores, Riteaid downstairs, C, C trains downstairs, Bus M50 across the street, other subway stops with 5-10 minute walk, doormen/women, good restaurants, Blockbuster, etc), 3 elevators, Parking next door
Cons: Lack of quiet ( I know I am in NYC but geez, they could have used reinforced windows, you can hear women walk down the street in heels and people coughing, I kept feeling like someone was clibming up my window but it was just the ambient noise from the street below), Request a unit as high up as possible but I am not sure that will help, Washers $2.50!!, Dryers $2.50!!!, elevators sometimes slow, I get the sinking feeling that this is also a hotel? I see so many folks with suitcases everyday. Safety hasn't been an issue so far but when I see so many new faces all the time, it makes me a tad nervous, parking next door $400/month (more if you have a full sized SUV) and only valet service, Expensive rate $199/day (but I guess in line with the NYC market for a fully furnished, all inclusive place. However, building is still more expensive than most, since to rent a similar sized (unfurnished ) unit is $2700-3200/month and I have seen similar modern buildings for similar sized apt (750 sqft) for $2100-$2800.
