Pros: Apartments in PCV are large -- a one-bedroom is likely to be the size of a two-bedroom (bedrooms can accomodate king-size beds and even office spaces). The grounds feature an 80-acre private park, with a seasonal greenmarket, music, basketball, volleyball, tennis and bocce courts. There are 15 playgrounds on the premises too.
Cons: Some people might not like the institutional feel of all the brick buildings that make up this huge complex, and some longtime residents have complained in recent years about the complex attracting an abundance of young, lively renters drawn to the sharable spaces and the proximity to the East Village.
