“Dear PoPville,

If you had $100,000 to put down on a home, hoping to benefit from future development in the neighborhood, say, 5 to 10 years down the road, where would you look today? Anywhere in town.

I’m still learning about my northern Petworth neighborhood. I think it’s a great urban community, personally, but have no clue whether it will appreciate down the road. I’m into enjoying it as is, warts and all. It certainly looks better than I’ve ever seen it during the month of May. Lots and lots of roses.

I appreciate the smarts of the readers you continue to attract and think there is a lot of community wisdom among them that could be of help to my friend. She, like me, is independent-minded and in her 50s.”
