Quiet is the word that comes to mind. And my view from the fourth floor is beautiful. I like the staff as well. They are friendly and helpful in numerous ways. I really appreciate the diversity within these walls. We have young families, elders, middlers like me. We have young adults both single and married. We have a variety of ethnicities and nationalities within the building and this is really a fun aspect of the apartment for me. I love dogs as well, and though I don’t have one and don’t plan to, I enjoy seeing them and do not hear them barking. I AM ADDITIONALLY THRILLED THAT WE WILL BE GOING NON-SMOKING.
