What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Fort Washington

it?s in a very convenient area, quite most of the time especially at night. apartment in general is nice floor plan

not that many units back where i live but the grass is always clean and the trash is never on the ground here

quiet most of the time. peaceful all the time. police are always around some where. plenty of space.

It's quiet calm and come back me and my friends just hang out at each other house and play the game or get work done.
