What Renters Like and Dislike About Foggy Bottom Washington

It's near downtown so great views and many place to eat. Lots of museums and arcades around plus the roads are great , business vibes

I like - love - living near the Lincoln Memorial, the Kennedy Center, GW University, the river, etc. I love it here for the same reason tourists do! But I also live near medical facilities and everything else in a downtown.

Prime Area, less criminal and usually we go to the park , my favourite bars and restarants are nearby too.

We have several book exchnges with the most interesting books..some published in foreign countries, some very old, and some advanc uncorrected proofs. Better than going to a bookstore.

Communities may share a sense of place situated in a given geographical area (e.g. a country, village, town, or neighbourhood) or in virtual space through communication platforms.

LOW NOISE. It's easy to overlook noise as a factor when choosing a home. ... GOOD SCHOOLS. Even if you don't have kids, it's good to look into the quality of your future home's school district. ... RETAIL NECESSITIES. ... COMFORT. ... EMERGENCY SERVICES. ... WALK ABILITY. ... LOTS OF TREES. ...
