"Dirty, dangerous, and delightful!"

We lived here for about a year, it was a time of fun, fashion, interesting friends, and vomit on the sidewalks. There are advantages and disadvantages to living in areas that are teeming with bars. On the one hand you never have to go far for fun. On the other hand, parking is terrible, loads and loads of crime, and rents are crazy high.

"Too many things to do and places to go"

Vernon St. is right between the 3 best areas in my opinion in DC. Its closest to Adams Morgan which is just up 18th street, next to U street, and also Dupont Circle North. There are so many bars, restaurants and night life around. The Red line is about a 10 minute walk and the green/yellow lines are about 15 minutes away. There are also buses but I always just walk to the metro instead.

Vernon street itself is fairly quiet, but if you are close to 18th street is can definitely be a little loud. I don't think people live in the area to be in a quiet place though, they live here to be around the city. This is a very safe street for the city. Of course there is some amount of crime since it is a city, and I am sure most of it occurs late at night when the bars close.

Baffetos pizza is also just on 18th street which is a great pizza place, if you get it fresh out of the oven. The wine store on the corner is also a great place (de vinos) its a little yuppie, but the guys that work in there are extremely nice, helpful, and not the least bit pretentious if you know or don't know about wine. I also belong to the gym Mint which is a little pricey but it is also fancier than other gyms around.

As you can see I am a fan of this area, specifically moved to this area because i like it so much.
