“I currently live and work on the Hill (by Capitol South) and am thinking about moving. Problem is, I rarely work 9-6 or 7, and I don’t want to have to deal with changing metro lines or buses late at night or walking through emptyish streets late. That said, I’d still like to be in an interesting, even bustling part of town and not spend a butt-load of money. I wouldn’t even mind a longish commute if it meant the actual walking late at night part was minimal. I’m looking around close-in parts of the Hill and Eastern Market (even if the walk is longer than my current 15 mins, I can hop on a bus when it’s really late). Also considering Glover Park on Wisconsin (30s buses) – after years on the Hill, convenient grocery stores are way more exciting than they should be – and U Street (96 stops in front of the Capitol when I don’t feel like waiting at L’Enfant for a change). I’m also restricted by affordability, as I’m looking for a studio for around $1300. So I’m curious, if you had to commute late at night from this part of town and didn’t have a car, where would you want to live? Or if you do work on the Hill and live in another neighborhood, how do you feel about your commute?”
