At Greene Manor Apartments, in West Mount Airy, the open, green courtyard surrounded by Elizabethan-style buildings radiates curb appeal. "We passed the property a lot of times and the courtyard was always green, well-landscaped and well-kept. That's what attracted us," resident Anthony L. Branch said. After admiring the grounds from a distance, Branch, 26, a global courier for First Union National Bank, and his wife, Tomika, 25, a computer analyst, took a closer look and decided to move to Greene Manor two years ago. "We liked the building.

Getting to the Olympics went really smoothly. I was met at my gate at the airport and escorted a short ways to where I got my credential, right there on the concourse. Within 25 minutes after landing, I was in the Olympic Village. The security is tight, just as I'd heard. There is a lot of military in the village. We're in some nice, new dorms at the University of Utah. Each suite has four bedrooms, two players to a bedroom, eight to a suite. Johnny LeClair is my roommate; I don't know yet who all the other guys in the suite will be. Some NHL teams had games last night, so most of the guys aren't here yet. The only thing bad about the rooms is there isn't much closet space.

A grande dame of designer showcases at the Jersey Shore, the annual Ruth Newman Shapiro Cancer and Heart Fund show house is going contemporary this year. "Meadows Edge," a 22-room fieldstone-and-clapboard home in Linwood, provides the setting for 22 designers from New Jersey and Pennsylvania to go a little more mod in their room presentations than in the past. Martha Hatrack and Christine Betsy of Kroungold's Furniture in Marlton took a dated great room and gave it hip leather Barcelona chairs and a zebra rug in a lounge area.

Huntington Green Apartments, Westtown Township, Chester County A spacious two-bedroom apartment at a reasonable price was what persuaded Amy Ferry to move to Huntington Green Apartments, a complex that has undergone a major face-lift in the last year.

The complex on the edge of Westtown Township is close to stores and has access to all the major roads, Ferry said. As for the apartment, "Everything has been redone," she said, noting that it was freshly painted and had new carpeting when she moved in this spring.

WICKERTON HEIGHTS Pottstown, Montgomery County 215-970-7093 Buyers get what they see at Wickerton Heights. There are no upgrades, no extras. "You're given a price, and there is nothing extra. People like that," said John McClatchy, president of Manatawny Development Co. What first-time buyers really like are the prices: They start at $83,900 for a two-bedroom condominium flat. But for that low price don't expect just four walls, a roof and flooring.

Jack Coben arrives at the door of his Huntingdon Valley rancher sporting a shirt with "Mr. Fix-It" embroidered on the pocket. The shirt is a gift from his son, and he decides to break it out for his photo op. About the nickname: Coben has spent the last 20 years of his retirement adding to and revamping the house he and wife, Anna, have shared for 25 years. The tinkering actually started way back when he and Anna, now married 64 years, were raising four boys in a Pine Valley split-level.

Management doesn't call Cooper River Manor Apartments a rental complex. "A complex, to us, is like a jail," said Richard McMurtrie, regional manager of Metropolitan Management Corp., the group that manages Cooper River Manor. "This is not a complex. This is a community. " In agreement is Patricia Dahl. Dahl, 73, has lived in her two-bedroom unit, complete with screened-in porch, for 14 years, and says the combination of responsive management and kind neighbors is a winning one. "You're part of a family here.

Crostwood Apartments, Feasterville, Bucks County A self-proclaimed "numbers man," Frank Hallowell recently figured out that in 12 years of living at Croftwood Apartments, his rent has gone up only 36 percent. "That's very low," Hallowell said. "What a bargain - back in the '70s, every two years, it went up that much. " Hallowell, a salesman who lives in a one-bedroom unit, said that he finds the moderate rent attractive, but is more impressed with the overall package.

Though Westgate Village bears the address of busy, developing Lancaster Avenue in Frazer, it's set back on a long driveway from the main thoroughfare, and you just might drive past the complex the first time you look for it. That's the way property manager Fran Kuzo and her tenants like it. "Our community isn't out on [Route] 30," Kuzo said. "A lot of people aren't aware of us until they drive up here. We're kind of a best-kept secret. " Westgate Village, though 30 years old, stacks up quite nicely against some of the newer properties cropping up nearby in Chester County.

Admit it, first-time home buyer: Your mother was right. Beware old houses, she said - not enough closet space. But, no, you wanted those quaint 19th-century touches. Now, you find yourself with piles of 21st-century possessions to cram into a house whose original owners lived in a much less material world. Before you start storing socks in the seat cushions, consider the alternatives: Look to the ceiling. Imagine cordoning off space in the garage or basement. Rethink how you use an already-designated room.

Some came with journals filled with handwritten notes, others with folders of typewritten papers. Some read their poetry, others had it memorized. One by one, they trickled into the Walt Whitman Arts Center in Camden over the last two days to play drums, recite poetry and dance. "People would come and say, 'I'm not going to read anything, I'll just listen,' " said Ozzie Jones, artistic director at the center. "But then they start creeping toward the stage and end up reading.

It's the newest domestic obsession: Last year, Americans spent more than $2 billion on closet renovations, according to Closets, a trade publication focusing on the industry. That closets are on the radar of interior designers is evidenced by this style barometer: Last year, the prestigious Kips Bay Show House in New York featured a utility closet for the first time in its 32-year history. Award-winning designer Eric Cohler did the honors, cladding the tiny room with diamond-patterned wood veneer wallpaper, glass shelves, silk-screened draperies, and a fluffy Greek Flokati rug. He decorated the space with branches of color-coordinated antique coral and, the piece de resistance, a $9,000 framed Audubon print of walking cranes.

In a word, Gladmar Court feels private, both in location and ambience. It is a homey garden-court community of just 16 units, and its two buildings appear neat, trim and carefully landscaped. Although it is a block off busy Route 30, about a half-mile from Interstate 295 and less than 15 minutes from Philadelphia, the 25-year-old property is peaceful, in a residential neighborhood shaded by mature trees. "We feel it's a very pleasant, quiet, well-groomed property with many long-term residents," said Gail Rivell, regional manager for Friedman Realty Group Inc. Residents seem to agree.

Denise Trimbur likes the location of Orchard Square Apartments. She likes the cleanliness, and the helpful staff. But Trimbur, an artist, really likes that she can easily apply feng shui - a philosophy on layout for positive energy - to her gorgeously decorated two-bedroom apartment. "This place is nicely feng shuied," Trimbur said. "It works here. " The abundance of space also works for Trimbur, for whom Orchard Square is the first foray into apartment life. When she moved to the property from a nearby house in September, having enough room to live comfortably was a must.

Property manager Charles Thompson told Erika Molj that there was plenty of closet space at 1700 Place Apartments, even in one-bedroom units, but even that promise didn't prepare her for how much storage space she'd have. "My daughter moved into a new house, and she has less closet space than I have," said Molj, who is retired and has lived at 1700 Place for three years. Her apartment has three walk-in closets - and she needs them all. Besides being near her daughter's house and having ample space, Molj has quiet neighbors who are willing to lend a hand.
