Ask Curbed: Which Way Out of The Octagon?

More eight-sided fun at The Octagon , the erstwhile asylum on Roosevelt Island. A tenant emails from the inside: "I moved in the opening weekend (the weekend the tram got stuck) with many promises of all these amenities that would make moving to Roosevelt Island potentially worth it. Not only was my hallway untreated concrete when I moved in, the perks have either been way behind schedule or have not even been finished yet (5 months later). Is there any way I can get out of my lease because of their unfulfilled promises, or is it just tough luck for moving into a new building?"
