  1. Laundry list of concerns...

    I live on the 31st floor and I have never seen any vermin in the building.

    Birds have yet to be a problem with my windows.

    I imagine all condos go up in price the higher up you go, as your...
  2. 29th floor loo

    I can confirm that the 29th floor has significant gravitational pull and that a standard toilet is sufficient there. If you arrive in an altered state requiring restraints, the issue gets more...
  3. LOL. We are busy planning poker and movie nights.

    LOL. We are busy planning poker and movie nights.
  4. Meeting

    Larryradio, it is not a lecture, just a fact and I apologise if it sounded like a scolding.

    It is because of the lack of official information that the google forum was formed to begin with. I was...
  5. Owners meeting

    Larrradio,

    The meeting was informal and not arranged by Penmark but clearly posted on the Google forum as are the results of it. You cannot expect a voice without bothering to make an effort.
  6. Do Penmark read this board?

    When I recently called the Orion manager about an issue in my apartment from the UK I was asked "Are you LONDONLAWYER?"

    I am not, but that question told me all I needed to know about WIREDNY and...
  7. There is a built in microwave area and a...

    There is a built in microwave area and a microwave oven included in the kitchen appliances. There is closet space designed for a small stackable washer/dryer combo but after using the laundry room...
  8. Fly on the wall

    I find the overall quality of construction to be good.

    Once I signed the original deal the sales office was useless. They had no answers to anything including potential closing dates. They would...
  9. Living in the Orion

    I just spent my first two and half weeks at the Orion and hope my observations will help balance some of the comments made here.

    NEGATIVES
    Wood floors damage easily, particularly the upper...
  10. For sale or rent

    That's a disturbing list. The same apartments are listed several times with differing prices and square footage.

    Manhattan Real Estate FRAUD is afoot on streeteasy.
  11. Different Strokes

    I considered many neighborhoods and looked at condos in the UES, UWS, Kips Bay, Harlem, LES and Chelsea.

    My preference was Greenwich Village as I had lived there before and loved it.

    I...
  12. To Investor350;

    “He spoke in quotes, incapable of conjuring up an original thought”
  13. That poster was speculating on what MIGHT happen....

    That poster was speculating on what MIGHT happen. It has not happened to my knowledge.
  14. I recommend you take some friends for a walk...

    I recommend you take some friends for a walk around the area. It has improved dramatically in the last two years. Since I have been away from the city for years at a time I chose to buy here because...
  15. That damn party

    As an owner and soon to be resident on the party floor let me chime in.

    I AM among the LIVID this party was allowed to take place!

    Lofter and Brooklynrider have provided more information on...
  16. The 31st Floor

    I did my walk-through Thursday and closed Friday on the 31st Floor. I was not allowed access to the 31st floor amenities which are available for rental only. There is a party room with a catering...
  17. Closings

    That is correct. I was warned in advance that my 31st floor closing could be as late as January due to the amenities, so a November closing means they are back on schedule or at least closer to the...
  18. November 22 for the 31st floor.

    November 22 for the 31st floor.
  19. I imagine people will arrange to play billiards...

    I imagine people will arrange to play billiards with their own friends and reserve the room for screenings of their own DVDs. I cannot imagine people wandering in as in the case of a public pool...
  20. Some kind of fee for using these facilities makes...

    Some kind of fee for using these facilities makes perfect sense to me. Do we really want to pay for full time cleaning and equipment security for something that may only get sporadic use? A screening...
  21. Starship

    Someday someone will accuse the Orion of destroying that historic landmark and we will be forced to boogie in public to atone for our sins of living on sacred disco land.
  22. Amenities floor

    I am just over the amenities on 31. Is that an issue for th efloors?
  23. LOL. I share your feelings. I am not easily...

    LOL. I share your feelings. I am not easily offended but I am also not that easily amused either.
  24. Staff expectations

    I have been by several times but it never occurred to me to ask to look around until my closing date arrives. It is in all our best interests for staff to not allow this and there are nice ways of...
  25. Corner Beams

    The twelfth amendment shows a rather large beam and 741 SqFt for the A units on the 27th & 28th floors so it may be, in fact, unique to those two floors. I don't know if previous amendments showed...
