i am going to be moving to the DC area this Fall for an Internship around the Mt. Vernon Sq. / Convention Center area. i'm looking for housing from mid-Sept. to mid-Dec.
so far a few of the housing options i have found, have fallen through.
i have found a place around R St. NE and Harry Thomas Way anyone have any idea about how safe this area is? i've been told to avoid the upper alphabets but the person renting the room has said its a safe/quiet area. just hoping to get another opinion.
any advice about living in the city vs. living in College Park, MD or Alexandria, VA (or other suburbs)? is the commute worth it for the price or would it be better to actually live in the city?
i'm not sure how many on this board are from that general area or are familiar with it, but i just thought i'd ask.
