Working in Dranesville
The Reston/Herndon area has been growing over the years. The area is filled with a lot of businesses, but the downfall is the residents who live in this area. There are a lot of neighborhoods that are specific for low income families and majority of the time these people are involved in drugs, gangs, or crime. It is the only aspect that makes the area unsafe (has nothing to do with ethnicity).
The kids of this area have no respect for one another. Some are racist and biased. Cliques are arranged by race and status of life. Although there is no physical bullying, cyberbullying is really bad. The kids are so drowned into the media they don't get to realize what's out there in the real world. The kids are so into partying and it affects thremselves along with everyone around them.
A review for this section is two-fold. While there are plenty of options for restaurants, both chain and individual, and even an impressive range of international dining options, such as a great Pho restaurant and an authentic Mexican restaurant, there are very few bars and extremely few/no nightlife establishments. Residents of this area do not have a place to go clubbing or dancing.
