Castlebraid, New York City Reviews - Write a Review
Honestly, speaking from the perspective of a real estate agent who deals with management companies all day every day, I have to say, the management at this company is the most incompetent I've ever seen. From start to finish it has been a war with them. I did not live at 114 Troutman, I lived in one of their walk-ups down the road at 819 Willoughby Ave. The application process took almost TWO WEEKS from start to finish because the owners of the company live in Israel and so every time we needed to submit more material we needed to wait on the owners to wake up in Israel, would receive a response around 10 o clock in the morning our time, and then reply immediately and still not hear back until the next day. Finally, after approval, we moved in and we discovered our radiator was leaking water all over the hardwood floors, we asked for someone to come fix it so our floor didn't get damaged, 5 times, never once was the radiator fixed and the floors are wrecked around the radiator as a result. No necessary repairs were ever made. In addition, they charged an outrageous flat flee for building heat of 100 dollars a month for our unit. Thinking this was a bit high considering our cooking gas was a separate charge, I inquired to see the gas bill for our building and see if that was a fair flat fee for every unit in our building to be paying, and never received a single response from management regarding that outrageous fee. So, I'm fairly confident that management was giving themselves a massive profit on the gas bill. At one point, management made an error on our invoice bill, we paid the balance listed on our invoice as we did every month, and then got a late payment notification from management's accounts payable, turned out they had made an error on the invoice, corrected it, never sent us the corrected invoice and then charged us a late fee when we paid the wrong amount, and was unwavering in the extra 100 dollars in late fees they were trying to charge us, for their error. They bookended this lovely experience by offering us a renewal which we took, as none of us felt like dealing with the expense of moving at the time, only to be asked for updated financial information AFTER BEING OFFERED THE RENEWAL, even though we had a flawless payment history, excluding the late payment on the invoice that they screwed up. This led to them deciding that we weren't qualified for the apartment anymore, even though we had a year of good and timely payment, and asked us to leave in 30 days. They are incompetent, non-communicative, and rude. Did I even mention that I had to do a "Russia Investigation" style inquiry to even figure out the number to call to speak to them, since no one seemed to know what their office number was. Finally found it and they weren't even aware that our lease was coming to an end and we needed to renew in the first place. I mean seriously? Don't live in buildings owned by these people, their over priced, and they do literally nothing. They cash their check and ignore phone calls, and they collect extra rent from their already ridiculous rates through massive upcharges on the utilities they don't let you switch to your name. Good bye, CastleBraid, and good riddance.
Ok unique living.
Great amenities, but absurdly overpriced ($2,800+ for a studio), with HORRIBLE MANAGEMENT! My neighbor has had no electricity for FOUR DAYS because he can't get in touch with management to let the utility company in to the meter. Office is open 10-2 weekdays by appointment only. You can hear people inside, but they'll ignore your knocking. Extremely unprofessional. One of the elevators has dropped multiple floors on multiple occasions, resulting in back injuries. Another elevator hasn't worked in months. Truly a shame, this could have been a great place to live.
Amazing views of the city, one of the best rooftops to have a nice picnic on :) such a wonderful unique place!
I've lived in Castlebraid for three years now and I love the community here. I've found some amazing friends living in this building and this is the number one reason why I stay. Other reasons include: great amenities, quick response time from management and maintenance, decent access to subway, nicely sized, beautiful apartment. Every building has a downside, but the positives far outweigh the negatives in this building. The negatives are just little annoyances mostly caused by the constant flow of subletters and airbnb folks who are not staying for any substantial amount of time and therefore have a short-term mindset on caring about their environment. However, the long-term residents go out of their way to enhance the building, including volunteering for the library, creating a rooftop garden, lending equipment for the recording studio, organizing holiday events, and just in general being helpful and neighborly.
