The Dirt On...Clarendon

Real estate blog DCmud featured an excellent and accurate article on Clarendon today. Resident James Mitchell perfectly describes the variety of this Orange Line neighborhood, from the swaths of different types of residential housing available to the diverse nightlife.

I completely agree with his assessment that it is too easy to just write off Clarendon as being a too yuppified upscale region:

"I find myself nitpicking the commercial and residential aspects of the neighborhood; for every Cheesecake Factory customer, there’s another with a trusty Whitlow’s mug for Thursday nights. For every Apple Store employee, there’s an indie kid covering Death Cab for Cutie at Iota."

Cheers to Paul for finding this article!
