Adams Morgan

Be careful driving, though. Parking is horrible, people walk in the streets and cops will pull you over for failing to yield. The metro is out of the way. We recommend cabbing it.

    I think the magazine is GREAT! But I echo the trfafic thing…this is probably too granular and changes too quickly, but it would be nice to know if you’re planning on working in X area, you probably don’t want to live in Y area until there are some road/highway construction/improvements (e.g. if you’re going to work in the University area, reconsider living in S.E. Charlotte or Ballantyne!)
