Dont know if there should be a new thread for this................A friend of mine actually lives in the building next door to 565 (The brown building on the left in the pic I posted above) and the interior is actually pretty nice. The lobby must've been redone sometime in the last few years, there is new carpet in the halls, and the units themselves are very well kept.
The only issue is the elevators always seem to be breaking down, but that's more of a citywide issue than anything. Even new buildings are dealing with elevator issues.
