It all starts with the grand tour. You’ll observe the prime location and notice how beautiful the interior of the building is from the lobby to the apartments. Decorations range from classic (in the lobby) to very contemporary (in the apartments). Everyone seems to be so nice from the management to the residents. So, you decide to move in…then “The real Blackwood” experience begins.

On your way out to work you’ll detect the strong, offensive, sickening smell of garbage in the air (of the hallways) as if the building needs to be aired out. Darn trash chutes backed up. Each week. Inoperative equipment including elevators, washers & one of the treadmills has never worked. Always an issue with one or more of the elevators not working. Each week. During the school year you’ll find Kenwood High School students (who DON’T live in the building) running through it, playing loudly in the stairwells, hanging out in the business center after school & being downright rude. Non-residents (as in homeless people) also hiding in the stairwells, sleeping on the couch in the business center during weekends, and stealing (bikes, etc) from residents. Each week. You’ll come home from work ready to unwind but have no choice but to listen to (and feel) one of your obnoxious neighbor’s music & bass since he’s only discovered one volume-Extremely Loud. Each week. In the spring when the weather gets hot you can’t turn on your air because the central air unit is having some “maintenance” done to so it’s down for two days. When you think it’s finally fixed the biggest heat wave of the summer hits and low and behold the central air is out AGAIN. I repeat, THE CENTRAL AIR OUT A.G.A.I.N. during the HOTTEST week of the summer – for days!!! And last but certainly not least, you, being a professional yourself, can appreciate the diverse group of other professionals living in the building as well but would have neverrrrrrr moved in had you known that there were at least two celebrity STREET PHARMACISTS (2nd & 10th floors) living there ALSO. So, there’s always a nice amount of fans/visitors coming into The Blackwood and going to these floors to get their “prescriptions” at all times. Each week. Maybe that explains why the elevators are always broken? Each week. Hmmm.
