I lived here for 5 years in a converted 5 bedroom townhouse in the front of the building. The building was relatively clean and well maintained. The neighborhood is noisy, so if end up sleeping in a room that faces the street, expect noise every night until bars close at 4am. The Super that maintained the building was lazy and rarely motivated to help fix or maintain anything outside his everyday schedule of duties. The location is a short walk from the F, M, J, and Z lines both at the 2nd Ave. and Delancey Street Subway stops.
