  4. I have been there for almost a week now and have yet to see any staff. The food is disgusting, the lockers are flimsy and are not secure.

  2. Yes if you stay to yourself and don't talk to ANYONE!! You are basically on your own, do the only way to be "safe" is if you stay to yourself and lock your locker tight! If at all possible, take ANYTHING of value with you when you leave.... including your shoes because they will take ANYTHING of value!

    The residents are sitting on the steps of my building 1419 8th Ave and are eating and drinking and smoking and leaving their trash on the steps. They also block the way when residents of the building are entering and exiting as well as making noise at all hours. Is there a reason they are allowed to loiter on the steps of my building, when there is an outdoor area for them to sit and congregate in?
