Dear PoPville – Quiet Apartment Buildings in DC?

“Dear PoPville,

I live in an older apartment building with thin walls. My neighbor (the same one for several years) has started leaving the TV on all night at high volumes (high enough I can tell what the people on TV are saying through our shared wall). The management company has done what they can, but I’m ready to move and can within the next two months. Before I do though, are there any really quiet buildings in DC? Not quiet neighborhoods, but buildings that are well-built and have features that help mask noise.

My experience has indicated it largely depends on your luck on landing a neighbor that is reasonably quiet or an apartment with few shared walls. But maybe your readers can enlighten me.”

Anyone live in a building with really thick walls? I’ve always imagined the Cairo would have thick walls.

We’ve previously spoken about soundproofing options here and here.
