The building is beautiful and old, and has been partly restored by owner Hal Forbes. It has a lot of character and charm, despite being rundown. Hal is reasonable and he didn’t over-charge us on rent, but he ignored most of our requests for repairs, including fixing a leak in the roof that was coming into the bathroom and causing mold growth on the ceiling. The building had rats and mice, but luckily we did not have rats in our apartment on the third floor because there weren’t holes in the wall that were big enough for the rats to get through. The apartment gets a lot of light and air flow, making it warm in the winter and cool in the summer, but the traffic on Cogswell is noisy.
