I've lived at Forest Park for three years, in three different apartments (for economic reasons only). I can soundly that my experience at Forest Park has been nothing but positive. The staff has always been friendly and polite, and the maintenance has been quick. The apartment have always been clean. With regard to negative posts lets be honest:
Noise? Yes if you live on the 7th Ave. side, but it's fine if you keep the windows closed.
Bugs? There are lots of plants and water fountains here that equals bugs, if you don't keep your place tidy.
Theft? I've never experienced it, nor have any of my neighbors.
Expensive? Not at all when you consider that all utilities are included (laundry and cable too). Believe me I've looked.
Out dated? A little, if you like super clean, modern and over sized this isn't the place for you. If you are missing the east coast and the charm of an older building you will love it here!
