Where to Live in Washington, D.C.?

Unless you're living in the expensive area near the Zoo - Embassy Row, Woodley Park, Cleveland Park - D.C. is noisy city-living. A lot of transplanted young people choose to live in high-rise apartments along the Orange line in the northern part of Arlington County (Metro stops: Courthouse, Clarendon, Virginia Square, and Ballston). These are convenient to the Metro - outdoor shops at Clarendon, and the shopping center at Ballston. But the Orange line is always jammed - and the Pentagon City shopping center is larger/better.

It's better to live on the south side of Arlington County - on the Blue/Yellow lines at Pentagon City/Crystal City!

Charles E. Smith Apartments has a bad reputation because they're so huge - and they also add up all the utility cost for the whole place - then divide by square footage. So it's much more expensive for most folks...however, their rent can be cheaper than a luxury apartment like Lennox Club/Warwick House - and Charles E. Smith has a one-time $600 move-in fee. So if you want to move into any of their apartments around - you don't have to pay a yearly fee - like most places.

You haven't posted for a long time. Tell us more about your life in Washington DC.

I like pork and beans, but it makes me sad when the can is all beans and hardly any pork--just a little dot smaller than the eraser on a pencil. Is there somebody in Washington DC who can fix that?

A cup of green tea every day. For longevity!
