Looking for some honest feedback about living in the U St. corridor
I’m considering buying a unit just off U St. Love the diversity, vibe, walkability, etc. of the area. Then I read posts here about crime getting worse, meth labs, women being harassed and intimidated, rash of recent break-ins, and the theft and vandalism of items left in yards being accepted as a given. I know this is city living, an area in transition, and stuff happens. I’ve personally never felt uncomfortable walking around as a visitor but recognize that living here is a different experience than coming in for a dinner out. I also get a sense from reading the posts that there seems to be a strong sense of community and good community relationships with the police. So the question I pose to those that live here is this: knowing what you know now, would you choose to live in this neighborhood again? Why or why not?
