Worst apartment I ever lived in in my entire life.

I've been renting apartments for the past 10 years. Before that, I lived with my family in an apartment building. I have spent my entire life living in apartment buildings. I have NEVER, EVER lived in an apartment building as bad as this place. It is literally THE WORST APARTMENT IVE EVER LIVED IN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.

There is nonstop noise and depravity going on in and around this building 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The building itself may look nice and clean at first glance, but when you start living there you'll start noticing all the problems. The windows don't seal properly, allowing noise and smoke to pour into the unit. The doors don't fit their frames properly due to shoddy installation and paint so they are tough to open/shut and very loud.

The building doesnt appear to have any sound insulation whatsoever. Its like the walls are made of plywood. You can hear and smell everything in and around the unit no matter how tightly you try to close your windows. The units have hardwood floors, which look nice, but are a nightmare to live below if you're unfortunate enough to live in one of the lower units. The noise transmitted through the ceiling from upstairs units is loud enough to wake you up even if you sleep with earplugs, and the vibrations will cause your light fixtures to rattle loudly.

Many of the neighbors in this building are pretty sketchy looking characters. A cursory Google search reveals one sex offender and a number of other criminals living in the building. They throw loud parties and do whatever they please at any time of day or night. They will go on the roof and have shouting sessions up there, they'll loiter in the hallways and stairwells shouting, cussing, smoking and drinking and leave broken beer bottles on the stairs and in front of the building.

The laundry machines are absolutely filthy and barely work. They are expensive to use and you will likely need to do multiple dry cycles to get your clothes or bedding fully dry. Every time you use them you have to spend at least 10 minutes picking out pubic hairs, pieces of weave and other gross gunk out of the washer and dryer. The tenants usually dont clean the lint filter on the dryer so you have to clean it for them. The washing machines smell really nasty, kind of like moldy cabbage.

The on-site building manager, despite his title, doesn't do much management of the building at all. In fact, he violates the rules himself on a regular basis. The lease clearly states that smoking isn't allowed anywhere on the property, but he frequently hangs out in the back of the building right outside people's windows smoking cigarettes and marijuana with his friends - the smoke from which will quickly flood your unit even if your windows are closed, leaving it smelling nasty for the entire day and causing respiratory problems if you are sensitive to smoke inhalation. He also has a habit of smashing things into his kitchen wall at odd hours of the night while "cooking" (never realized that cooking required smashing every object in your kitchen into your wall so hard that it vibrates the entire building and wakes people in the adjacent unit up while they're wearing earplugs), singing karaoke (really badly) at like 2 AM and loudly slamming the back door and jogging up the loud wooden stairs that are connected directly to the paper-thin wall of the corner units on that side of the building in the middle of the night.

Criminal activity around the building occurs every night, with drug dealers and gang members regularly hanging out around the building despite the numerous "no loitering, prowling" etc signs posted up everywhere. It's not uncommon to be woken up in the middle of the night to the sound of gang members and drug dealers standing outside your windows shouting as they barter a drug deal or get drunk/high with their associates. The apartment complex next door is also home to a wide variet
