The place could be nice if they cleaned it up. About ten years ago I encountered about 30-40 blacks there standing around near my car. I contacted law enforcement and within minutes they arrived and saw to it that these visiting inner city types left the complex. A few days later, I learned the place provides section 8 housing. Shortly after I moved out. There's no such thing as a quick buck.

In the 80's and 90's, this place was not so bad. Present day, it is downright disgusting. I went to look at potentially living at Hillside Gardens this past year when I had to relocate, having remembered that it was a somewhat decent place to live back in the day. I was horrified and disgusted at what I saw. Of course, the office looked top notch. The apartment the girl showed me (which she didn't even know how to get to, because she didn't know where the building was) smelled like smoke and mold. Garbage and dirty diapers were just sitting outside in the hallway outside tenants doors. Blankets and sheets in people's windows - it just looks trashy, and for the amount of money people pay to live there - they should seriously be held to *some* standard. They had all the dumpsters aligned down the main driveway overflowing with garbage and litter everywhere around it. A really nice first impression when people drive in, right? I didn't even want to take an application, but did so to be nice. I quickly discarded it after seeing first hand what this place now looked like.

Hillside is a disgusting place and the commenters on here are just workers from the office coming to defend the dump they have only made worse by not listening to tenants and hiring horrible maintenance. They don't even fix broken door knobs or parking areas. the place is a disgusting disaster and everyone is telling everyone not to live there. Soon hillside will be a ghost apartment place because eventually people are going to stop agreeing to pay close to $1,000 to live in third world conditions.
