I've lived here for about 8 years now. In that time, due to changing life circumstances, I've changed apartments thrice. So, I've lived in their smaller apartments as well as their largest one. All the while, the facilities have been kept nice and neat and the apartments themselves have retained their 1920s charm. The building manager is very helpful and that is one of the things favouring this complex over others. The convenience of the complex as far as ease of transportation and proximity to stores, the highway, malls, etc. is also in its favor. Though, I do think the prices are a tad high, I would like the other reviewer to spell out where in Jenkintown proper (not Glenside, Abington, etc.) they found similar accommodations (square footage of the apartments, ease of having an on-site building manager, etc.) for hundreds of dollars cheaper. I understand that that particular review is two years old but, in 2015, the prices at other places are either the same or higher than Greenwood Terrace. The neighborhood is very nice, and more importantly safe as it is more suited to young professionals, families and those closer to retirement.
It's a nice building, pretty art deco design, solid masonry construction and good location- all the right ingredients for a really nice place to live let fall to the wayside to what was far below low income project status in the 1980's-1990's to brand new "super management" and a "total renovation" that began with fervor but lost its steam somewhere along the way. New management gutted many of the apartments, cleaned up the outside gardens, brushed up the brickwork facade.. put a lot of work into the external renovation only to stop somewhere along the way leaving the state of the building hanging in the balance. Half the apartments are lovely the other half you wouldn't find in the worst part of West or North Philly. The hallways, the foyer, the laundry room and other common areas are dirty, old- lacking any sort of taste or standards established in the past thirty years. The carpets are old, stained and moldy. Every spring through fall there are a team of a dozen masons hanging off the building outside of your window every other week to fix superficial brickwork (not to mention invade your privacy) and in the winter there isn't enough heat to adequately heat your apartment. This management team really knows a thing or two about cutting the wrong corners. With the superficial renovation the apartments "show well" but between the plumbing issues (broken pipes, fixing pipes every week, turning the water off without notice, followed by rusty dirty water coming out of the faucet for days) the heat (which often doesn't go on even when the temperature outside reaches 30 degrees,) poor appliances that break down or don't work at all , and improperly installed basic features like window and door locks that fall off and the insistent use of forty year old elevators that do not respond to calls or get stuck between floors- this place just isn't all its cracked up to be. The same size apartment with all the same amenities in this area runs for $300 less. I will be going with one of those this year.

White-collar professionals and their families choose to call Jenkintown home for its work-life balance and safe neighborhoods. This borough resides on a small patch of land east of Wyncote and extends past Old York Road.
This historic borough houses plenty of pre-World War II architecture. Locals know it as a community of artistic professionals who hold jobs in a variety of creative professions with that same artistic charm helping to shape the little corner of Montgomery County. At only 10 miles north of the heart of Philadelphia, residents easily commute to the city without having to live amidst all the hustle and bustle.
