I don’t think it is necessary to malign one neighborhood just because you may like another better. The beauty of DC (which admittedly took me a few years to realize) is the uniqueness and contrast of all its neighborhoods.

I may blow some people’s minds but I truly and genuinely love Cleveland Park as well. Screw it – I’ll say it loud – I love Georgetown too.
