I applied 3 years ago and my address changed. They sent a letter that needs a reply but when I called I was told that they can't do anything for me in terms of:
1. Sending me a new letter to my new address. 2. Accepting anything but the letter they will not resend.
I understand the application fee is not refundable but $150 3years ago is still $150 today. I don't see the problem with reprinting and sending a letter or even better, email. I'm still interested but they will not accept anything but the return piece of paper they attached to the recent letter sent.
I would be surprised if I’m the only person was done to.
I will be reaching out to management and higher about this as this can't right.
I read some of the review and first I have to say that Franklin Plaza is not Rent - Controlled because the rent keep going up and for those who have 3 bedrooms for $1000 is truly blessed because I'm paying $1043 for a 2 Bedrooms. I agree about the elevators breaking down and the drug dealing and the smoking of weed in the stairway which out of control. At one time Management was careful on who to rent the apartment to. But now it doesn't matter. If they can get rid of those bad apples then Franklin could be even a better place to live and slow down on raising the rent. I have to work a 2nd job just to keep up. I'm not getting any younger.
I grew up there. in u luv it
I JUST MOVED INTO THIS DEVELOPMENT AND I HAVE TO SAY THAT ALTHOUGH MY APT IS GREAT..THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS ARE THE WORST..WE HAS SHAREHOLDERS HAVE TO STICK TOGETHER NOT WORK AGAINST EACH OTHER.THE BROAD MEMBERS ARE SHAREHOLDERS THAT HAVE LIVED IN THE PLAZA FOR MANY YEARS AND THEIR IDEAS ARE REALLY OLD. YES YOU MAY HAVE DRUG ACTIVITY BUT WHAT COMPLEX DOESN'T. THE PRICES ARE GREAT AND THE APTS ARE NICE..BUT MOST OF ALL THE RENT IS STABLE..EAST HARLEM IS AN UP AND COMING COMMUNITY SO IF YOU WANT TO LIVE OR CONTINUE TO LIVE IN THIS AREA FRANKLYN PLAZA IS A GOOD PLACE..
Franklin Plaza's location is excellent in East Harlem. The buildings and grounds are well kept, with tenants taking part in a community garden of sorts. There have been robberies, mostly of seniors because people hold the door for strangers, which we have been told many times NOT to do. The apartments are spacious for the money. The only complaint I have is that certain populations of tenants take unfair advantage of the free utilities (free water, gas and electric). They run laundry services from their homes, running water day and night at all hours and machines. This still goes on, especially in 2075 Second Avenue on the 19th Floor. If Franklin Plaza would go back to regular inspections, much of this could be curbed. Overall, it's a great place to live--I plan to stay here for many years.
