Okay apartment for how old the buildings are. Parking is fine unless it's during football Saturdays which a spot isn't always guaranteed. Noise is usually fine except for our neighbor a few floors down plays basketball until 2 or 3am which is extremely frustrating.

Very nice

Laundry is a chore with the building I'm in, considering it's across the entire complex.
