Houses are nice but somewhat overrated. There are better places to live in DC for the same price. My problem is the rats, to me that is a huge problem.

I live in a small town in Washington, Dc called Tenley Town. It has a huge variety of restaurants and connivence stores but no clothing stores. There are a lot of fast food restaurants, including Chipotle, McDonalds, Popeye's, ect. There are a couple of restaurants that deliver food, but mostly sit down restaurants. Along with food places, we have a Best Buy, Container Store, Lowe's, Radio Shack in the area. There are no "mom-and-pop" shops in my neighborhood. There are only big named companies. Basically everything that I need, I can get it close to my house, except for clothes.
My neighborhood is filled with very successful people. There are politicians, bankers, lawyers, artists, business owners, doctors, and much more. I have not met anyone in my neighborhood that does not have a decent job.
