(5-29-2015) This is an epic elevator. Unfortunately, it could also use some help. The door needs adjusting as it does not currently open to its fullest potential, the machine (although epic) does not sound like it should, and it shakes violently while leveling. My theory is that all of the elevators at this location do not receive the maintenance they should. Vintage Otis elevators are normally some of the most reliable, but all of the elevators here are said to be unreliable and have proven their point by either being broken or not running as well as they should.
FUN FACT - I made an attempt to censor myself when the leveling got bad. Instead of saying "holy sh~t" I lamely said "holy" as I couldn't think of anything else to say.
