Let me throw out a couple of places we've looked at, maybe you can chime in. Pentagon City/Crystal CityColumbia HeightsWe're (my wife and I) not planning to buy a car, so somewhere close to a grocery store is ideal, as where as at least SOME green space for the dog. I'll look into Foggy Bottom some more. I am a bit concerned about safety for my wife, so anyone who can speak to the safety of certain areas, I'd REALLY appreciate it. I'm also trying to keep the rent about $1500ish for a 1br.
