i was considering the stonecrest apts, but it's proximity to the hospital was definitely a deterrence. I actually think i may have found good housing--it's a 4plex on e riverton about 1/2 mile from the mission ave bridge. It's right on the river and looks nice. i'm keeping my fingers crossed that this works out. i'm sending my "application" (haha, come on, it's a background check not an app) today or tomorrow. Is this a good area? from what i can see on google maps streetview it looks like a decent area. the only drawback is that I can't adopt a puppy there, I have to get a housebroken dog. still, this is better than no dog!
