I'm heading down there in May to work for half a year. Granted my housing will be paid for but seriously - compared to here in CT apartments are a steal.
2 BR + 2 Baths + Kitchen + Dining + Lounge + your OWN washer/dryer = $900 a month..... Plus the complex has not 1 but 2
pools & hot tub & fitness center
Good luck finding a ratty 1 BR in the crime ridden north end of Hartford for under $1000
