Anyone with info as opposed to criticism?


That is correct, I used to live in a duplex apt on Sussex between Washington and Warren. It was ground level and sub ground. We never experienced any flooding.

I'm looking at an apartment on Monmouth near Columbus. Can anyone confirm that Sandy & Irene (or any other flood events) didn't affect that area (lower level unit...)? The maps of flood prone areas that I have found online through JC List seem to indicate that it's good, but a first-hand confirmation would be even better.


I live on Wayne and Monmouth, and during the hurricanes, there was no flooding on Monmouth and Columbus. There was flooding under the Extension onto 78.

In 2015, only a desperate idiot would rent ground level downtown.
