Renting here was the BIGGEST regretable mistake I have ever done!! Many people are fooled by the price at these apartments being so close to main st and all... but let me tell you,please dont be fooled! Its not worth it!! Apartments are frequently broken into and car robberies on the property is very common!! Management is ABSOLUTELY and COMPLETELY useless!! Nothing ever gets done or fixed at the right time! Beware, there are mice running around in the apartments all the times and you can even hear them making these noises in your sleep!! Hygiene is totally worse! Everything in the apartment tends to be falling apart! The apt is so less energy effcient that the heating and cooling bills are through the ROOF! and yet you might be shivering or sweating in the apt! Roaches, carpets bugs and god knows what not seem to run through the apartment all the time! They keep saying the pest guy is coming out but that seems to never do anything (i.e even if he comes!)... NEVER even sit or set your feet on the apartment carpets!! They are totally and completely disgusting!! You can be lucky if you leave this place at the end of your lease without any diseases. Doors in the apartments are poorly managed! and hence break-ins and robbery is QUITE COMMON!! and the management tries to hide that fact for all the tenants !!
This place is not worth it!! I can keep going, but if you are reading this and at least have the smallest level of common sense!! PLEASE! DO NOT rent at this place! I see people signing leases and the first thing is I feel sorry for them!! Your decesion lies with you! Ratings like these exist so people wont make the same mistake as us!! Seriously with less than 1% approval... and you still sign a lease here.. I do not know what to tell you! I would'nt let my dog live alone at this place! Good Luck!
I've lived in several apartment complex's in my life and I must say that this ranks in the top. Before we moved in we read a lot of nasty reviews, people complaining about bugs was what really scared me. After living here for over a year, I can say that those reviews have not been true in my experience. I've kept my space clean and of course I've never found a mouse or insect. Maybe its because theres no dirty dishes! Anyway, management is good. The maintainence guys are a bit unreliable but when they do come around to fix something they are very nice and quick. All in all, this ranks better than the skuzz holes I rented in Boston which I paid twice as much for so I give Manayunk Gardens an A+... definitely cleaner than some dirty yunker rowhouse.
I have lived in these apartments for almost three years and never had any serious problems. Maintenance has always been prompt and effective. The best part for me is the location. I love being able to walk to the train station and down to Main Street. The off street parking is also a major plus. Overall, the apartments may not look that nice from the outside, but the insides are cozy. I do not think you can find comparable apartments in terms of space for the price anywhere else below Ridge Ave.
Drafty, out-dated, rude neighbors, several little annoying things about the apartment such as: the faucet sprayer won't turn off once you use it, I've had to come home from work and try to get into my apartment in the dark bc the light inside the security door only works when it wants to, assigned parking doesn't mean much...my space is taken pretty frequently, there are no overhead lights in the living room or either of the bedrooms, no lights in the closets either, impossible to get anything fixed.
