Bedbugs at 850 Amsterdam Ave -
Anonymous on 08/31/2011
Started getting bite in June of this year, just assumed they were regular mosquito bites. But then, noticed they were more swollen and coming in groups of two or three in a line. I've always been paranoid of bedbugs and am moving away so I contacted BLDG to get a report on if/where bedbugs had been found in the building. I was told that they were not required to tell tenants that are moving anything of the sort but that the problem had been resolved and was nowhere near my apartment. Just moved into my new place (in Maine), found a bedbug. Just awesome.
BLDG Mgmt: never again on 06/23/2011
Last summer (2010) my apartment got bedbugs. It turned out that the management had known for some time about my next-door neighbors' infestation and not warned the rest of us, so of course we all got them. Then, this spring 2011, I saw the telltale exterminator and his equipment in the lobby of my building and contacted my building manager. Yes, I was told, there was again a bedbug problem - again after the fact, and again I got them. This time, I moved. I should have done so years ago. For your own good, avoid BLDG Management buildings! They are an extremely shady company, and hostile in their dealings with tenants.
