I don’t know that area really well (I’m further NE), but I’d be a little wary. Will you generally be getting off Metro at RIA? The walk from the Metro station isn’t really that friendly. You’ll either go through the Home Depot lot which usually has a bunch of men waiting around for work. If you take the bus or walk up RIA, you’ll still be walking past a couple of housing projects and/or the rec center (probably where the teenagers hang out). You may want to try checking it out a a couple of different times on different days if you can. I’d hate to talk you out of a good deal, b/c the place sounds nice, but personally, I wouldn’t want my wife to make that walk.
