The Craigslist ad says:

“Your new address is 737 Longfellow St NW! This apartment is in a small well managed building. Bright apartment with plenty of windows and airflow. This apartment home has easy access to metro bus lines that run all over the city. It is close to Walter Reed, Howard U and Hospital, Silver Spring, Columbia Heights, and much more. Close proximity to grocery stores, pharmacies, and other shopping conveniences. Please contact UIP Leasing to set an appointment to view this fantastic apartment.”

Does $895 sound reasonable for this 1 bed/1 bath? I chose this one (though it is a bit further north then requested) because I though it might work for the following reader who asks:

“I’m looking for a new place to live in Petworth within the rhombus defined by:

Between and Taylor and Farragut
Between Georgia and New Hampshire

Can’t afford more than $900/month incl. utilities and I come with a quiet/tidy/peaceful/herbivorous 5-year old son.

We’re game for apartments—semi-slummy to well manicured, group homes, communes, or (like our current place) rooms in someone’s house.”

Anyone have suggestions for this reader?
