I've lived in a 2br 1bath in Crystal House I (there are two buildings) for almost a year, and really, it hasn't been that bad. I am probably moving out because my roomate situation is changing, but I would prefer to stay. <br><br>I don't know why people are saying the mgt. staff is so bad- I haven't had any problems with them, and when I am polite to them, they are polite and helpful to me. Maintenance request have been dealt with quickly, and one maintenance worker even fixed my toppled-over Christmas tree when he was fixing something else. <br><br>The apartments are spacious and well layed out, but they are older, and will inevitably have some problems (mostly with plumbing). Shower pressure is low, but I haven't had a problem with hot water. Laundry facilities are also hit-or-miss, especially with the dryers. <br><br>Noise within the building isn't bad, but you can hear just about any noise going on outside- from cars coming in to fire trucks to drunken kids being obnoxious. Parking has gotten progressively worse as well.<br><br>All in all, it's not perfect, but I don't mind calling it home. And, it's in a really great and vibrant area. As a young female, I have felt very safe here, but I don't use the metro and I hear walking under the underpass to get to the building can be a bit sketchy at night.
