From Lonely Planet:

“The US is a dynamic country, and its most popular cities to travel to are constantly changing, in large part due to the sharing economy. Neighborhoods once avoided are suddenly hot spots for tech companies, emerging artists and entrepreneurs.

Following Lonely Planet’s list of the coolest neighborhoods in the world – which included Frelard in Seattle and Sunset Park in New York – the travel media company asked their US-based travel experts and Lonely Planet Locals for the hottest up-and-coming neighborhoods in their cities:

  • Capitol Riverfront & Yards Park, Washington DC “One of DC’s most recent reincarnations, the former Navy Yard, a commercial wharf in the 19th Century, has been completely overhauled. Formerly one of the grittier parts of the US capital, the riverfront area began to change in 2008, when it became home to Nationals Park, DC’s major league baseball stadium. These days, there are more reasons to visit here than for sport alone; the entire waterfront precinct now features an attractive boardwalk, small riverside parks and a handful of top-notch eateries.” – Kate Armstrong

“Dear PoPville,

I was curious if you ever knew of anyone being hit my a garbage truck? I contacted Tenleytown Trash after the incident and sent them an email and left a voicemail. Just curious if anyone else has had a similar experience:

Good Afternoon, I wanted to contact you because this morning [Saturday] one of the Tenleytown Trash trucks nearly ran over myself and a good friend of mine. The truck was heading West on U street from 14th towards 15th and made an illegal left hand turn onto Waverly Place NW where my friend and I were walking. Despite seeing us the truck turned into us forcing us up against the wall of the alley screaming for them to stop. Were we not so thin we would have been hit. The truck then kept at the high rate of speed and kept going. I would greatly appreciate someone contacting me regarding this incident. The truck sped down the alleyway and I did not chase after it because my friend was shaking violently. Thank you for your time.”

“Dear PoPville,

I’m pretty sure there are a few regulars here who own investment properties. My husband and I have considered buying a small house or condo to rent out. We’d like to bring in a little extra a month and expect property values to increase significantly in our neighborhood over the next 5 years, so now would be the time. We’re already seeing sales prices start to rapidly rise, so affordable options are becoming more rare. We would probably have to borrow against our primary residence for the down payment though, so we’re not sure it’s worth the risk.

To those of you who own rental properties, what are the key things we should consider in making our decision? I’m interested in hearing both about financial considerations and also the general headaches of being a landlord.

“Dear PoPville,

I recently moved into a new condo building, which had been redone (it used to be a 4 unit apartment building).

While we have moved in, before we closed on the condo, we signed a separate document with our seller acknowledging the work they still need to do on our place, which includes fixing our call box (which currently does not work for our unit), and a number of other minor things.

Although we have minor problems, our neighbor in the building has more serious issues, and the contractors never finished the neighbor’s closets that she request built in the condo as part of the settlement.

We also recently found out, upon the transfer of the DC Water bill, that he had not been paying the water bill for months. (more…)
