Well, I can finally give you the news that I was approved for the apartment I chose! What a process. These people were very thorough and I had one, from long ago, brief employer who would NOT call them back. But finally they approved me without his two cents.
So, here are the pictures. It needs some sprucing but I have a nice water view and the bike trail is right outside my front door. I think I can really make this work. This Victorian building would be gorgeous if they ever gave it a paint job. Moving day is October 1st.
