View of Courtyard through new windows 12-02-09

The inside rooms in Ryle will all have the same great views that they had before renovations of the courtyard.  Once all of the construction equipment goes away and the ground is re-landscaped, residents will surely be able to enjoy this excellent view!  (Picture taken 12-02-09)
