“Dear PoP,

I live up in Montgomery County, and would love to move into DC this summer. But, so many of the rental options I see listed on your site and on Craigslist etc. are way out of my price range. Can you or your readers recommend any buildings or neighborhoods close to Metro where one can find clean, safe studios for under $1000? Can’t be picky when you’re on a budget, but the first step is to find any options at all!”

If you don’t mind living in a basement, I’d say this one bedroom in Mt. Pleasant for $950 could be a good deal.

But what do you guys think, what neighborhoods would you recommend for a single woman looking to spend under $1000?
