"Great Neighborhood"

I live up the hill a little across from the park which is really nice. There is definitely a fair amount of traffic on 16th St since it is a major road into the city, but the advantage is that taxis are really easy to get most of the time.

One somewhat annoying thing about living across from the park (which is really large and nice) is that most Sundays when the weather is nice there are a bunch of guys playing drums for hours. While this is a neat tradition that has lasted for decades, I can also hear them a little bit in my apartment.

There are several different buses that come right down 16th st, though the Metro is bit of a walk about .6 miles away (U st or Dupont).

There also seem to be less rodents etc on the hill since it isnt as dingy as other part of adams morgan, where rodents are more common. Of course there are tons of bars and restaurants very close by, but they are a few blocks away which is somewhat nice.
