OK guys; it was closer to highschool than Heights. Did it have anything to do with Heights? I do not think so (only based on location), but than everything is possible. Well, as I stated I am resident of Heights, and you know; it is totally different inside than many people think. First of all it is very quiet here. From elevators there are four corridors going in four directions and most of the time you do not see anybody. Honestly; it really seems deserted. Than; appartments are decent, airy, spacey, a lot of closets, small but nice kitchen and of course if you keep it clean it is clean. Very thick walls do not let any noise from neighbouring appartments. Utilities are fine; water is very hot most of the time; heater/ac is working properly; elevators are working fine; meintnance service is good. Maybe I luck out on the building? or on the floor? No loud music; people are friendly enough; nobody bathers anybody. So, where is an EVIL? Probably lurking outside on parking lot or in the park? It must to be here somewhere according to the horrible opinions about complex. Now; I am not saying buy any means that it does not exist. I must to be just lucky that I saw no evil, heard no evil... Oh...knock, knock on wood...

@Senior, sorry but that is not the correct Eldridge Ave you mention. This section of Eldridge where the picture was snapped is across the street from the Heights of Collingswood's "A" Building on the White Horse Pike. The apartment complex was not involved (with this story) as rather the name of the complex was only referenced to the location of the incident. Hopefully the Collingswood PD will clarify what the issue was that day.
