If you live in this area, how do you like it? any advice on finding an apartment here?? we're looking for a "towny" area. we're city-dwellers but understand there isn't a great "city" area there. any pointers? thanks ladies!

    I would HIGHLY recommend staying FAR away from Featherstone apartments in Newport News. I lived there for a year, maintainence never came. The management sucked unless you talked to Barbra. The area was horrible and riddled with crime. There was never any parking. The kids in the area terrorized my roommates children and the neighbors kids. BLECH! I know about a few others if you need help.

    This is where I used to live. It's set away, but nothing is that far. Plus it's not that far from the interstate for your DH to get to work. Langley AFB is right there as well.

    we used to live in newport news before we moved down here to texas and we lived in waverton place Impressions. they were okay in rent too but we also had a 3 bedroom apt. their kitchens are the only thing that we really didnt like because they were to small and they had no outside storage. there was a place we lived in hampton called township of hampton woods and we actually liked them a bit better.

    I live in norfolk so i really dont know anything on that side of the water. i heard newport news is bad never been there. i hear hampton is cheap but it sucks to get to the base because of the tunnel. Good luck with ur apt hunting!
