My understanding is to always desire the best for your own community. I cannot really say what I could change because I am still discovering many wonders. DC is constantly evolving.

Everyone knows each other but there are a lot of fireworks that tend to go off everyday. It could also be quite noisy outside and in the apartments. There are a lot of kids and teens that live in the neighborhood.
This community lives in harmony. I love that everyone knows everyone, you can leave your truck open to take groceries into your apartment thats the type of environment we have. One thing I dont like and I wish I would change is the amount of drugs. Mostly marajuanna.
