Growing up in Fairfax County I was told that if the street sign didn't have an NW on it, I didn't want to be where ever I was
My car was robbed in Woodley Park, which is about as Northwest as you can get.
Catholic is fine, so is the area around it. I go to church there on Sundays. Sometimes I drive, sometimes I take the Metro. Either way, I'm never scared of anything.

Either way, I'm never scared of anything. I do not scare easy. I took my LSAT at Catholic. Upon my walk to the metro after the test I saw four cars with their windows smashed and stereos gone. That does not scare, but makes me hesitant to park a car in that neighborhood.The only time I have ever been worried for my safety was at the Florida Ave. Metro (Green Line). At the top of the elevator a group of guys were smoking a blunt. I am from Los Angeles and this was way worse than Wilshire or McArthur Park, more crackheads per block than I thought possible.
Admittedly, the neighbordhood is not the best in DC but it is also far from the most violent (like say Mount Pleasant where the majority of the gang violence happens)
