We moved out of the NW DC basement apartment yesterday and are now living in an apartment in Arlington, VA in the Shirlington area. We'll be here for August.
This place is much more urban than the DC apartment, which was in a quiet suburban neighborhood. We park in a small lot, then go to the lobby door, unlock it, then go up to the 3rd floor to our front door. We have two bedrooms and a loft. It's in the middle of a bunch of (nice) apartment buildings, so we'll have to refigure our routine and find some new stores, libraries, (we're closer to our pool now) for the month of August. Just another way we're sampling different ways to live here in this area.
