Washington, DC

I don’t know if it’s because it’s August and some folks originally came to DC because of school but I’m seeing many of my friends announce their anniversary of years lived in DC. I actually fall into this category as well, I came to DC in August 1997 to start grad school at American University. I can hardly believe it but this week marks my 15th anniversary living in DC. My first home was in Woodley Park in a basement apartment on Garfield Street:

So for today’s Friday question I thought it would be fun to ask how long folks have lived in DC? For those who have lived here over 5 years – do you still live in the same neighborhood as you did when you first moved here? Anyone born and raised here? Anyone born here and moved to another city then moved back to DC?
