Within 90 days or so, I plan to be moving into a fancy new townhouse with three other guys. One I know from work, another I met through the work-guy, and the third is an old friend of the work-guy. I did the whole rowhouse thing in college with four other guys, and it mostly worked out.
The place we have our eyes on is a new townhouse on the south side of the Huntington Metro Station. We saw it yesterday and it’s very nice. The neighborhood seems ok, though I’ve never been enamored with Huntington in general. I’m currently living alone in a low-rise in the Landmark area, and I was having second thoughts about moving at all until I saw the townhouse last night. It really is that nice.
I like the idea of being near the metro for the convenience factor, but four years of living in Baltimore has also ingrained a strong sensitivity to possible crime. Part of me thinks that close proximity to the DC metro would make most areas have a higher crime rate than areas farther from the metro.
Do any Alexandria Dopers have any thoughts on moving into the Huntington area, specifically near the metro?
