hi my name is David moved from France to nyc a year ago
i lived with mike for a year now and i have to say that he always treated me very well , kept the place clean in fact a very friendly housekeeper(Janice) came every ten days .
Mike is a nice man he always offered me food and even invite me for dinner
he got a little cute dog very friendly and quiet
About the room: the place is very spacious and well maintained !
I warmly recommend for people who looking for quiet and peaceful place to live
I had planned to live here for 3 months, but at the end of 2nd month the situation became uncomfortable between us. I told him I would move in 1 month - leaving him enough time to find another tenant - but getting very offensive, he kicked me out at 1am. He has yet to return my security deposit and I am taking legal action against him. He looks very friendly and unassuming, which can be deceptive.
I,too, had a horrible experience renting from this man. I wrote a bad review but for some reason, the review was removed and I am sorry that someone else had to have another bad experience. This man was abrasive, innappropriate, and quite irritable.
I WAS MICHAEL'S ROOMMATE FOR 3 YEARS. AFTER MOVING IN THE 1ST YEAR I WAS ILL AN UNABLE TO WORK. MICHAEL WAS EXTREMELY HELPFUL AND ALLOWED ME TO BE BEHIND IN MY RENT FOR 8 MONTHS TILL I COULD CATCH UP.
HE WAS AT ALL TIMES FOR THOSE 3 YEARS A GENTLEMAN. I EVEN HAD HIM COME TO SOME HOLIDAYS WITH MY FAMILY.
I HAD ONE MAJOR ARGUEMENT WITH HIM IN 3 YEARS AND THAT WAS DO TO THE FACT I WAS SMOKING IN MY ROOM. AN AGREEMENT I HAD BROKEN. I WAS NOT A SMOKER WHEN I INTERVIEWED FOR THE ROOM BUT TOOK IT UP AGAIN AFTER 17 YEARS THE DAY I MOVED IN.
I ALSO HAVE 2 LITTLE DOGS THAT HE TOOK IN AS WELL AND THEY ADORED HIM. WHEN I WOULD GO AWAY ON VACATION OR FOR A WEEKEND MICHAEL WOULD TAKE CARE OF THEM FOR ME.
I JUST WANTED TO STATE THESE THINGS BECAUSE MY EXPERIENCE WAS DIFFERENT FROM WHAT I HAVE READ. I MOVED OUT WHWEN I DECIDED TO MOVE IN WITH MY BOYFRIEND.
Hello, I was a recent tenant at Michael Driscoll�s apartment (NYC 89th And 1st) during a four month period, 12/2007 - 4/2008. He was an amazing landlord/person, from his extreme generosity
through impeccably clean standards. Not only is his apartment tidy, but it is amazingly spacious and welcoming. I truly felt at home during my stay. He's hospitality was much appreciated, from his food offerings to my personal warm comfortable bedroom/bathroom (not to mention fully furnished!!!). Also has an adorable, sweet dog who always greeted me with open paws upon my arrival.
I highly recommend visiting his place and getting to know Michael. You will see first-hand what a joy is and a remarkable home he maintains.
Hello....well, Id like to ammend my earler comments about this landlord. Subsequently Michael has been very accommodating (no pun intended) with us. It turns out our schedule has been changed by the hospital so we no longer require an apartment. But, I think Michael would do his very best to assist anyone needing a residence in NYC.
Sincerely, Bill Berensmann
