I moved here a while ago, and while the apartment is nice...great layout, near shopping, relatively safe area...the noise levels are pretty ridiculous. What makes things even more frustrating is that I had asked about noisy neighbors...told no problem, and now i'm constantly hearing shouts and… See More
