HOWEVER I caution all of you to watch out for Valentine Park apartments, from Novarr Mackesey. I would strongly discourage you from living here. Not to give too specific details, but in addition to being relatively farther away from than places in Collegetown and much less attractive/comfortable/functional, I've also been having flooding problems that have not been adequately addressed. So, be on the look out! I know a lot of law students live here, because it's relatively cheap and they advertise a gym (pretty crappy) and free parking (usually not enough spots), but just make sure you evaluate all of the other housing options first.
Thank you for this post. My wife and I are currently hunting for a place and we're worried we'll be stuck in a similar situation, so getting a heads up is great. All too familiar...
Please let me know if there are any other places to stay away from
