Easy access to Georgetown, airport, trails, Potomac River paddling, gyms and casual eateries. Needs more nightlife and upscale dining but, it's in the works. Safeway is being remodeled. Great outdoor and social activities sponsored by Rosslyn BID! River Place is insanely cheap to live with pool, gym, and garage... and only 2 blocks from Metro.

Rosslyn /ˈrɒzlɪn/ is a heavily urbanized unincorporated area in Northern Virginia located in the northeastern corner of Arlington County, Virginia, north of Arlington National Cemetery and directly across the Potomac River from Georgetown and Foggy Bottom in Washington, D.C.

Rosslyn encompasses the Arlington neighborhoods of North Rosslyn and Radnor/Ft. Myer Heights, and is located east of Courthouse, another urbanized Arlington neighborhood. Characterized as one of several "urban villages" by the County, the numerous skyscrapers in the dense business section of Rosslyn make its appearance in some ways more urban than nearby Washington. Rosslyn residents have an average household income of $105,000 and 81% are college graduates
Too much of a commercial business area, and not enough amenities for residents actually living in the community.
