  • ARGH! I have really liked some of the flips on Lyman. Keep trying to justify a purchase in this area and keep feeling like I’m fighting a losing battle with myself when I hear about crime in this corner east of Bladensburg.

      If it makes you feel any better, I live on that block, heard all 12 or so shots, and if only one connected non life-threateningly, then I take solace in that my neighbors have really bad aim.

    We recently bought a house on 18th NE a few blocks south. I would suggest getting a grasp on the crime in the area before making a financial commitment (like buying a house). We saw the house as a long term investment, but didn’t move in blindly. If you do decide to move there, get to know your neighbors. We stopped by during various times and days to get comfortable with the area. Ultimately we are happy with the decision and have been excited to see the new construction projects and street car!

    You may want to take advantage of the districts private security camera rebate program. Heck I would advise private security cameras around your property rebate aside and an active alarm system but that’s just me.
