College Park has decent apartment rates if you can deal with living in a college town. The area is uhhhhhhhhh a little iffy. It's PG. I'm sure others will chime in.

Move to Nova. Unless you're a city dweller. I could never do it myself, but others wouldn't have it any other way. Maybe you're one of those people?

Maryland. Silver Spring is right outside DC, nice downtown area, some areas iffy but most is aite. Bethesda is super nice, expensive, not diverse though. Chevy Chase, same as Bethesda. Rockville has tons to do, diverse, expensive, but its the capitol of MoCo and plenty of Metros in all these areas. Virginia is evil stay far away.

It really comes down to your price range. How much are you willing to spend each month on rent/mortgage.

We can give you better insight then.

I work down town...and live in DC.
Once you give a price range we can better hook you up.
I work with alot of out of towners and interns so im always looking at places, plus my local Message board post up shit like "Great Rentals"...

The cheapest place in DC that has a pretty decent hood is (drum rolls)
The Woodner on 16th street.
The original Roach Motel.

it use to be the cream of the crop back in the days...
But now...not so much.

It have a shuttle to the metro, but its only like 8 blocks away.

Read this from my local BBS...

Im reading the old thread on the woodner...and Im at work Dying laughing...haaa haa.

Quotes:

Quote:
“If you take out the killings, Washington actually has a very very low crime rate.”

lol



Quote:
I lived at the Woodner for a year when I first moved here, and I would recommend it to a subgroup of people, with the appropriate caveats about roaches and murder. I rented it sight unseen so that I could tell the moving company where to bring my stuff from across the country, and will admit to being horrifically depressed when I finally got here.


Quote:
The woodner as a rental option – thats got to be a joke right? That place is a roach nest with people living in it.
LOL

Quote:
So just wondering – how many roaches do people find tolerable? It is a city after all – one a day? one a week?
I rent out a condo in an older building – 30 units – most recently renovated and well kept up, and the building has regular spraying and intensive roach control, but there are 2 apts. that have chronic infestation, so everyone in the building is probably going to see one or two crawlers a week – do you consider that horrible? Tolerable?
I once lived at 22nd & N, put my glass of juice down and picked it up a minute later to find 2 roaches doing laps. Dated a guy in a swank Kalorama rowhouse apt. where you turned on the stove and 50 roaches (no lie – I used to scoop them up with a spatula and drop them in a greased jar) would swarm out.
So – what’s the acceptable roach quotient?


Quote:
Basically, everything described above comes with city-living (murders, bugs, catcalling, etc.). If you don’t like it, than get the hell out of my town and buy an ivory tower in fairfax.
The woodner is decent living and not a monkey house full of tropical hoodlums, as some deem it here.

Crystal City area is the bomb for me. Very clean, very safe, lots of law enforcement. I live in VA, work downtown DC.. 9th & F st.

www.liveeatonsquare.com

Technically its Alexandria, but its literally on the border of Arlington/Alexandria. $1100 or less for a 1 bedroom. Newly renovated apts. About 1 mile from Pentagon City mall.

A metro stop isnt in walking distance but I catch the bus to the metro station at the Pentagon, and metro to work. $1.25 bus ride + $1.25 metro ride to work + $1.25 metro ride after work + $Free bus transfer home = $3.75 a day to get to work. Best part is the bus ride is only about 10 minutes and the metro ride is about 10 mins. Takes me about 25-30 mins total to get work without having to move my car during the work week.

you get more if you stay on the MD side such as Laural,College Park, Silver Spring, Wheaton, Rockville, Germantown. PG County.

You get nicer enviroments and scenery in VA side such as Arlington, Falls Church, Vienna, Ballston Common, Crystal City, Springfield, Annandale, Alexandria.

All locations mentioned above are metro accessible.

You can live in DC "Uptown" GA Ave, 16th Street, U Street which are all sections of the city that are trying to turn into Condo area with lots of young professionals.
