I recently visited the building to check out an apartment. The apartment available ($750, 1BR) was very small. The bedroom is just big enough for a bed and the living room - barely big enough for a couch and a TV. Not sure if it'd be possible to fit a dining table there (probably not!). The apartment was also quite dark - the windows facing the court yard are quite small. If you live in this building you'll be better off with an apartment facing the street - at least you get some light.
Everything is old, including kitchen fixtures, bathroom stuff, etc. This could be charming if you're into old apartments, but frankly there seems to be more problems than benefits.
The only benefit (for me, at least) were the mouldings and high ceilings. But, like I said, that wasn't enough for me.
