Apartment advice needed.

Apartment advice needed.

Hello, all. I'm tempted to show pics of the space I'm in now (junior enlisted housing, Ft. Wainwright, AK), but it's kind of a mess right now. But if anyone's interesting, I could take some snapshots anyway. ANYHOW... My husband and I just found out today where we're going next: Fort Drum, NY (upstate NY, near Watertown), and I really want to live off-post this time. So any recommendations, warnings, and whatnot would be really appreciated. Right now all I have to go on are apartment complex websites and they always gloss over stuff. Thanks in advance, Heather Mac. :)
I’m so excited!

Grapefruit?

I thought this might be a hollyhock, but after seeing a recent post, I think maybe no.
