  • Ugh I wouldn’t live on that block. I run by there all the time to get to the track by Banneker, and in addition to it being the definition of concrete jungle, I have been shouted at, antagonized, followed, and called a mother f-ing white f-er. I can’t imagine facing that every morning as I walk out my front door.

    • To be fair, are you, or have you ever been a “mother f-ing white f-er”? Depending on your age, I assuming the answer to that question may just be “yes”. 😉

  • Expensive.

  • That seems like a lot for a one bedroom that’s not right on U St. Not to mention it appears to be a ground floor unit.

  • Interesting choice of staging furniture in the living room.

    • I clicked the comments link hoping every comment would a sarcastic, scathing response to that. PoPville has let me down.

    • Anyone ever leave behind an unwanted item when moving, pretending the new tenant might want it even though you secretly know they don’t? I think that’s what happened here.

      • There was a movie– starred a bunch of supposedly-hot young actors as newbie Wall St types. They all watched Glengarry Glen Ross a lot, and their mansion was furnished with nothing but a high-end video game system and a few beanbags. Remember that? That’s what happened here. The previous tenants could afford rent and an arcade BB game and nothing else.

        • Boiler Room. Really loved that movie and having been to a rooftop party in this building, I could see some of the same personality types 🙂 Total tangent, I thought the scene was supposed to show that they had all that money, but didn’t have the time or the taste to actually unpack their moving belongings and make their places look like a home.

      • I can’t believe people think it’s OK to leave stuff behind when they move out.

        • saf

          When we bought our house, they were going to leave a TON of shit. So glad we went on a walkthrough! We insisted it would be gone or we would charge cost of disposal at closing.

          They still left 2 cars, but most everything else was gone.

          Well, except for the vermin. And the weird stuff like empty bottles in the ceilings.

  • Man that’s expensive

  • I rent in Dupont and pay slightly more, but I have a full outdoor space and…well….I live in Dupont.

    As Jimmy McMillan would say, the rent is too damn high.

  • Really wish we could get an Apartment Rental Option Revisited post to see if someone actually pays that much for the unit.

    • They’ll probably pay more, since in my experience the actual price of a rental is higher than what they advertise.

  • Silly me. I thought, “hey that’s reasonable for a 2 BR, 1 bath.”

  • I live in the building. And in defense…..The two bedrooms have been renting at $3,000 to $3,300 per month, so it’s probably priced okay. Also, the folks are mostly 30 to 40 year old men and couples in the building. Only a few just out of college/law school types. The neighborhood only looks shady….. Plus there’s a more retail, apartments/condos and grocery coming to this area next year.
