Hi Luke - we are sorry you did not have a pleasant stay. As you can see from previous reviews others did not have the same opinion of the neighborhood. We do not advertise this to be Park Avenue and are sorry that your expectations were not met. I am a single female and live 10 blocks away and never feel scared or threatened, I actually enjoy chatting with my neighbors and they are helpful when i need something like garbage taken out on a day i am not home. That being said, I do believe that this is a very fair price for the flat. If you looked at local hotels for the night, they start at $175 that is before taxes and fees. We also have never had another review with a mouse for this unit and have a monthly exterminator. Again, our apologies this didn't live up to your expectations.
