10 Midwood: Peace Out.

After a year of living in 10 Midwood, my time here has finally (and thankfully) come to an end. Consequently, so has this blog. I think I've made my point that the building is a substandard place to live, and the fact that this blog is easily Google-able should make this information easy for prospective renters who want to find out more about 10 Midwood to discover.

I will no longer support this landlord and management company by paying rent here, and I am moving to another building in the area. I hope things change for the better for residents of 10 Midwood in the future.


The Truth

10 Midwood: Promoting Exercise for All.

Greetings, fans of 10 Midwood Sucks. We are now going on day 6 of the building's elevator being condemned by the city. I understand that elevators in buildings are occasionally closed for maintenance - but letting the only elevator in the building fall into such a state of disrepair is dangerous to the tenants, neglectful and disrespectful.

I'm in shape enough to take the stairs each day without a problem, but a good number of tenants in 10 Midwood are elderly and a few are disabled. Seeing them struggle to climb the steps is very discouraging. I feel worst for the single mother who has to carry her disabled son and his wheel chair up and down six flights of steps every day...what a good woman.

Enjoy my rent checks while you can, slumlords. You only have one more left.
