I have to admit I was impressed with Sycamore Bay at the onset. I lived nearby for several years, watching it get built, and secretly longing for the luxury of it all. Now that I'm finally here, however, I must say it has it's downfalls. Maintenance, for instance. Although I haven't had any emergencies, it took them nearly 2 months of continual reminding to have them show up and fix 3 minor things, 2 of which were present when I moved in. The grounds staff is friendly but overworked. Seems they also have an issue with office staff turnover. As far as living here, I am on the third floor, which you'd think would be great for noise. If someone in the building slams a door, you know it. The echo factor is high, and you can hear an occasional domestic quarrel bounce off the walls. Security is a joke. Even with a "gated community", I still managed to have a visitor block my garage and disappear, car locked up tight. AND, office policy states that they cannot be towed because it is not a towaway zone in front of the garages. I chose to live on the third floor, above most of the noise, and I do enjoy the exercise (there are no elevators). I also love having a full size washer/dryer in the apt. Lots of light, lots of room. But you pay for what you get, and in this case it's not worth it to me. We will not be renewing our lease next year. It's a nice place, I think, for professionals who are hardly home, but it lacks the community feeling of the rest of Newark.

PROS: Full size washer/dryer, airy, lighted, "professionally managed"
CONS: NOISY, impersonal, parking can be hard to find,
