We were moving from Branford to New Haven. We got online and looked at New Haven luxury apartments, and we found a really nice apartment complex just a few minutes away from where I worked. The College and Crown apartments looks brand new when you drive up. It is very new. Probably the mortar holding the bricks together is still curing in some spots. This alone made the place a must-see while we were out looking at apartments. It was important to us to at least have a renovated place, but this place was new. So, instead of having remodeled apartments on old grounds, this was a thriving new community.
I like the views and how it is surrounded by all of the things you want from entertainment to dining. (more…)
Of course I knew that my neighbors planned to retire down to Florida and I assumed that they planned on hiring a moving van just like most people would. However it turned out that one of their sons had a truck that he could borrow from his boss, so long as he had it back the next Monday. He and I did a lot of moving before we left. The final destination was one of those luxury apartments in West Palm Beach Fl. The truth is that I stayed up all night the night before and slept much of the way down. We loaded up the truck on a Thursday night and then we left about five in the morning so that we could get out of town before the traffic woke up and made it difficult. Of course we hit Charlotte NC at a bad time, or maybe the traffic is always bad there.
The trip went pretty well and we got down there before it was completely dark. The moving fun began right then, but we had things organized pretty well. (more…)
We have lived in Massachusetts our whole lives. When we got married, we were looking online for nice Cambridge MA apartments. We found the Arlington 360 apartments in nearby Arlington. It is only about 18 minutes away by car from Cambridge. That is a short commute. This place has been settled since 1635. It used to be part of Cambridge. There is a wealth of history in Arlington alone. A long time ago it was called Menotomy, and it is where Paul Revere did his ride on horseback yelling, “The British are coming!”
Growing up it was kind of weird living in the area where so many movie plots about early American history were about. (more…)
