While the park has improved over the last 8 years in regards to the fact every night I come home I don't have the State Police chasing someone through my yard, most of the violent offenders are gone, and some of the really bad kids have been chased out with their families. This place is still horrible to live in, any landlord whose sub flooring is rotting and yet blames the tenant for the rotting floor on a 35 year old trailer is insane. I did not bust the pipe that rotted the floor, only 50% of my electrical outlets are fully functional and 2 of the outlets that do function only function for about 1 minute at a time when running your microwave before they blow a breaker.
The water lines ruptured over the summer and no one came around to notify the tenants of the situation at all, basically they left it up to us to figure out what was going on. You will be lucky to get someone to come out after hours unless your place is on fire and burning to fix an emergency issue. There are still several crack whores, drug addicts, etc. in here and the children have no manners or discipline. Try having a special needs child and living in here the neighborhood children will make your child feel like complete garbage. The skirting on many of the units is falling off and Sandy only amplified that.
There are so many stray cats that run around here as well as many cats that are abandoned on one of the weekly resident families that are evicted that its almost impossible to not have your porch or deck smell like cat urine and spray in the summer with the heat. The walls are rotting and the wood paneling is falling apart or rotting apart in many places. Parts of my sub flooring are so warped that you actually will sink in. The exhaust fans in the bathrooms dont work, the Kerosene heating fuel tanks are sitting on unstable and stacked concrete blocks in many locations. Many of the refrigerators have no shelves in the freezer or bars across the door shelves.
The landlord herself is a very nice lady at first then will turn into a complete and utter *$%#@ as soon as you request things be fixed or have an issue. My significant other was sexually assaulted in the park and nothing was done about it to the offending family. It is nothing to see a woman on welfare with 4 or 5 kids and pregnant with another walking through the park smoking to go buy weed at the dumpster from her dealer who comes in from town.
Also for anyone who decides to make the choice to move in here understand that the landlord will try to get you to pay in cash and she will keep register of it in a receipt book bought from a supply store and she pays the few employees she has under the table. So that makes it very interesting to speculate on why she prefers cash over money orders or checks. She will accept them but prefers cash, I am only speaking on my experience of the 8 years I spent in this hell hole and thankfully I was able to secure employment and get my family out of their because not to be mean but the residents of the park are trash with only a handful of them are even close to respectable. HOWEVER that being said if your one of Betty's many family members that live in here you can do whatever you want to your trailer, the park, or the other tenants with no consequences. Please, PLEASE if you are single then you can give this place a try but if you have a family and or a special needs child then run away from here like the wind and listen to the stories the residents of Carlisle tell about this place because your gonna be thankful you did.
