Potomac West Reviews
Del Ray is such a wonderful neighborhood filled with equally wonderful people. There is a thriving business community with restaurants and shops, and many community events throughout the year. It is like living in a small town, the streets are filled with people walking their dogs and baby strollers, kids on bikes, a very friendly place. Halloween is a blast! There are many lovely, old houses although quite a few have been torn down in recent years to build larger homes.
While I very much enjoy living in Alexandria, I preferred living in Washington DC-- better access to metro, public transit, free swimming pools, unlimited parks and recreation.
Police are visible. Police are present at all after school events and have weekly summer overnight camps in the summer for City resident youth . Neighbors look out for each other in my immediate community .
