people listen. please listen and do not set yourself up for a disaster.
Mary Bradford the building manager never fixes the hallway or any repairs that you need. The upstairs apartment flooded my apartment and it took a year and a half for them to finally fix the water damage wall after i reported them to the Better Business Bureau. shame shame shame. Worst place in the city to live.
Not to mention the walls have lead paint that always chipped. Do not move their especially if you have children or plan on starting a family.
After my apartment flooded she promised to discount my rent and she DID NOT. She promised to fix my wall and she DID NOT. She said she was going to fix the hallway and she DID NOT.
Mary Bradford is a SLUM LORD and i do not recommend moving to VINCENT LANE APARTMENT.
#WORST place in the city to live.
i give Vincent Apartment an F for failure ...the maintenance came in other apartments without permission for non maintenance for little nonsense not on the work order repairs such as a faucet screen without notice they were going around and they were going into the apartments when no one is home which legally they can only do that for an emergency medical reason,fire ,gas leak or flood in the ceiling....they broke the law...theres no key entry for safety,theres no second and third story window guards for small children so they wont fall out a window,the detectors falsely go off all the time .fire dept comes to false alarms very frequently,tenants are scum bags and trash the place,they dont enforce the parking situation,people park any where its inconvenient...it has roaches ,they lied to me and said they have ants but it was roaches,none of my things for the apartment on work order were ever done,no heat and hot water very frequent since sept ....

These are probably the worst apartments in the area. If you want a nice apartment with good maintenance and friendly management - Vincent is definitely not the place to go.
I've been a tenant here for over 12 years, starting from the time when this complex was owned by SU for their graduate students (much like South Campus). After Longley Jones took over, there was a steady decline in the upkeep.. along with an ever-changing management team.
First off, someone has a master key to the apartment buildings - and Longley Jones is refusing to admit it and re-key. There were 6 robberies (including mine) in the past four months, with no signs of forced entry. I've learned my lesson and now have both the bottom AND the top knobs/deadbolts keyed with my own keys (look at the police reports from this area - they are in public record and are available from SPD).
Their new apartments look great.. until you start looking underneath the ""veneer"" of cleanliness that they give off (if you're lucky enough to get into a good building). Oil stains have been painted over, there is mold under the tiles in the bathroom (the tiles are coming out of the wall). Most (if not all) of the apartment complexes are infested with roaches and other crawly things (silverfish). Thankfully, I have kept my apartment in pristine condition over the last decade.. and I bomb it against cockroaches/spiders and trap it regularly (by myself).
Slowly but surely, the apartment complex is turning from housing graduate students and quiet neighbors to Section 8 housing. You will have neighbors on all four sides either fighting, screaming, playing rap music, or smoking marijuana.
The management leaves a lot to be desired: Mary Bedford seems nice at first, but can throw a tantrum worse than a child, kicking and screaming that EVERYTHING is your fault. Stubborn and mean-spirited - she will not treat you nicely unless you are Section 8. Jim Gans is a little bit better (he used to be amazing!).. but now that he's the assistant manager - don't expect too much out of him: he always looks to Mary before speaking.
After 12 years of putting up with this, I am finally moving out. It's a shame that these apartments are going downhill so fast (and their conditions cannot be called livable, for some of the buildings). Moving out of here will seem like moving out of a war-torn country.
