    "Easy commute; mostly traveling in the opposite direction of traffic coming in from the suburbs in the morning. Excellent access to public transport. "
  • Trulia User
    "I commute by metro to MD. Sometimes take a bus to redline so that I don’t have to transfer. I appreciate the easy access to 395 to get to VA as well, and green and yellow lines to the airport, Gallery Place, Nats park, and the Wharf are great. "
  • Trulia User

  • Trulia User
    "I live by the giant, 8th and O NW, I regularly walk to and from work (dependent on weather), and I work at 14th and Penn NW, a little less than 2 miles, hailing a cab has gotten easier from here to work, but if weather is bad and I use lyft and it’s less than $10 per way, this area also is conveniently located between Shaw and convention center metro stations"

Neighbors both old and new are friendly, if not on a first name basis. "
