What’s Your Favorite Part About Living in DC? (Redux)

Thanks to SAF for the suggestion we revisit this question which we last spoke about back in 2015. When we posted about the kudos from the New York Times some folks reflexively mentioned the bad stuff. Yes, yes, cities have bad things – we chronicle them everyday. I do not shrug them off but sincerely hope we as a community can address them thoughtfully. The negative that exists here and in many major metropolitan areas does not mean that D.C. doesn’t deserve the kudos. In fact D.C. is not just a great place to visit it is also great place to live. Overall, we are very very lucky. Ed. Note: If you don’t feel this way, feel free to sit this one out – thanks. So, for my fellow Washingtonians – what are your favorite parts about living in the District of Columbia circa 2020?
