Habibi Lounge

It is currently 1:34 AM, Friday night. With my window closed, I can both hear and smell the downstairs Habibi Lounge.

I have called the 9th Precinct and I urge you all to do the same: (212) 477-7811

Not only is the noise uncontrollable, but they are smoking & drinking on the street, which is ILLEGAL.

They disrespect not only every single tenant in this building but also our neighbors.


(212) 477-7811


IT IS NOW 2:28AM. After calling Habibi directly and telling them to lower the music or I would notifiy the police department, they verbally assaulted me, and then proceeded to call me back and threaten me. Pretty ridiculous.

I have lived 15 years in this building.
I am very much in agreement that Galron Realty has led to the serious demise & health safety of this building. Everyday I weigh up the pros & cons of staying here, which ultimately has to be the goal of the Landlord. I too, have been greeted with foul language & disrespect when calling the offices. All basic requested maintenance jobs have been tardy, poor, sloppy and cosmetic.
I have damp creeping up my walls were the masonry is constantly disintegrating & turning into powder. Which I inhale. I cannot paint over this.

This Spring, I had to listen to the continuous loud scampering of rats up & down the ceiling. (they were breeding in the floorboards above) To add to this, they had climbed up the outside wall one floor & scratched their way into my apt via an external pipe entry. I was awakened each night for several weeks to their furious scratching. I informed the building management & this was classified as a non emergency & I would have to wait. When the exterminator finally called he tried to assure me that it was mice. Once he saw the 6" hole created he quickly changed his mind. I had rat feces all over my home. Disgusting. It truly felt that the rats had overtaken the building.

In addition:
The front door lock is infuriating.
Garbage area is dangerous (unstable), rat infested & foul smelling. Honestly, it often smells like a dead body is out there.
Hallways are constantly filthy.

I would like to aid the process of getting a 3rd party management involved.
