Stanton Park Reviews

Public services in the U.S. capital should theoretically be the best in the country to serve as a representative for our prosperity, so services being average or slightly above average does not seem adequate. The services in greatest need of improvement are related to local transportation to assist the hundreds of thousands of commuters who live outside DC get to their destinations more efficiently. The Metro frequently breaks down and the buses can be unreliable. Congestion on the roads every day make driving a nightmare.

I live close to an up-and-coming row of great restaurants, bars, and clubs. The prices here are reasonable for Washington, DC, and the transportation options are expanding, which means it will be less expensive overall to come out here for an evening. The variety of places to go is great: it ranges from dirty dive bars to fun bars that serve great food, to higher end exclusive restaurants, and a lot of the bars also play music later at night. There's a theater and a small concert venue in the area, too, which gives greater variety to what can be done on a night out.
Washington DC is great for highly-educated young professionals willing to work up to the employment they want for a few years, since there seem to be several opportunities at non-profits and working as a contractor for the federal government. My perspective is very limited, though, since I am only looking at government-related work and within a specific field.
