In my time living here, there is never tourism or high visitation in this area. My neighbor hood is unknown for the most part and gets cars coming through to escape the Pennsylvania Ave traffic.

In my neighborhood, there are many great houses here. There are not vacant abandoned houses.
There are two extremes to safety around this area. On side and community you hardly hear a thing and it is very safe. Five minutes from this very place, it is not the same or as safe.
