This question was brought up in a rant/revel but I wanted to give it a proper post. Obviously you can never be a native born Washingtonian unless you were born here but that doesn’t mean you can’t deeply identify with DC (am I tipping my hand here…?) So let’s talk years – how many years do you have to have lived in the District before you can reasonably consider yourself a Washingtonian? Or is it more a frame of mind rather than a passage of time? For those who are not native born but consider themselves Washingtonians was there a tipping point, a specific moment you remember when you made the switch?
