Bleeding Apartment Baseboard Heaters

I recently moved into a small apartment building on the second floor that has baseboard hot water heating. When the heat turns on in the morning I can hear the sound of water running and sloshing through the pipes and it wakes me up as it's pretty loud. I did some research and it looks like there may be an air pocket and the system has to be bled to allow the air out.

If this is correct how is it done? Also, should I do it myself or should I have the landlord do it? Can it be done within my apartment or does it need to be done at the boiler itself?

If it's apartments like I'm used to working in..... it's done at the boiler.
Nothing to bleed in the apartments.

You're on the second floor.... are there any floors above you ?
I would certainly notify the super/landloard of a need to bleed. (nice pun )

Yes, it's a 4 story building.

I'll mention it to him and hopefully he bleeds it.
Thanks again for the quick reply PJmax!

I'd imagine if you have that issue..... the apartments above you do too.
