FT is not worth the trouble or money. It's cheap, which is great, but the rodent problem alone is enough to make you not want to live here. I have had at least 5 mice since I moved in a year ago, and the management claims to have come in here with an exterminator. I didn't do anything to help. I still find droppings in my kitchen daily. The management is horrible and the maintenance is mediocore. Nothing happens very quickly and you are often given the run around on everything from much higher than normal utility bills to dirty carpets. The size is fabulous though and the rent cheap. The 38 bus runs slowly, too, and is rarely on time. It goes to Center City, but you might wait outside for an hour or more during non-rush hour. All in all, if you don't mind a family of mice and can drive everywhere and are handy with a hammer and screwdriver, this is a good place. But if not, look for something else. The money you save here just goes back into the apt anyway, so just spend the money upfront elsewhere.
