I have lived in the neighborhood for three years and love it. On the saftey side, yes there has been a recent uptick, but these seem to come and go, and I personally have never had an issue where I felt unsafe. I had my car broken into recently (seems to be a big uptick in this in the last few months) and a bike stolen out of my back yard shortly after I moved into the area, but again, nothing were I felt unsafe.
I think alot of the complaints of U st. are valid but if you get 2 blocks off U st. especially towards 9th St. alot of those problems go away (noise, parking). I have to drive to work and I never have had problems parking except after 8pm on a Friday or Sat (and can usually find parking after looking for awhile).
