I’ve lived in apartment buildings and rowhouses in DC, and overall, noise has been a way bigger problem in the apartments. When looking for houses, I’d check with the insulation, especially in renovations. I rented a row house where the renovators did not properly insulate the walls just so they could add more squarefootage, and we could hear our neighbors loud and clear. Otherwise DC’s sturdy rowhouses (that I’ve seen) hide noise pretty well!
