I love Southwest. I hate the Wharf. It is extravagant and overpriced and doesn’t fit in with the rest of residential DC.
The lives place you can go too. Restaurants there's entertainment some cultural experience we have the Waterfront there if you never seen it best seafood ever as well as the best looking people around welcome to DC
It has a nice Waterfront area where I can relax my mind and enjoy a great view. I live in a rather diverse area where it is almost always quiet. I am able to enjoy baseball and soccer games that are relatively close. There are many good food places and job opportunities close to my house.
We love the small-town feel where people welcome you and get to know you. There is so much to do and explore, but nice that is is close to other neighborhoods.
Southwest has a wide range of fun and exciting activities all ages can participate in. From children stories at the library to a fun playdate near the playground. Southwest waterfront is the place to go.
The area is improving. The waterfront is a fun place to hang out with many interesting restaurants and businesses, however; allowing cars to drive into the Wharf was a bad idea, they should set up a parking area and either shuttle people, or let them walk for a block or two. The city should also plan better for the parking problems that residents are facing with the new developments.
where i live the crime is very rare but dangerous.
The area I live in is okay, it's quiet and everyone is just doing their own thing. I would wish everyone was more friendly to each other and have more neighborhood activities.
I feel I should not have to pay taxes state or federal. We are told often DC is not a state. D.C. Also has not vote on the floor when laws are passed. I give away my hard earn money because?
The metro rail is doing constant track work which can make a 15 minute commute take up to a hour ??
They have began to transform this city into a mini New York and I hate it.
One of the main problems in this area is people move here from all over and have a better chance at finding a job or starting a career. The actual Washingtonian( someone born and raised here is seen as less qualified because of the educational system here in the District. Washington D.C. Over the last decade and a half has had people migrate here and with the current population there simple is not enough of an opportunity for everyone. If you don't have at least a bachelors degree you can expect to make between $10- $15 an hour. Which is not enough, considering a decent apartment in a good neighborhood is going to cost at the minimum $1200 a month. With required income of $33- 35,000 for a One bedroom.
