"Totally Upscale Homes and Apartments on Idaho Avenue NW"
Those who live on Idaho Avenue NW definitely have a prestigious address, even though not that many people would be impressed. But if you drive down parts of this street, you'll notice that there are many large, very expensive homes, as well as several newer high-rise apartment buildings which have parking lots filled with expensive cars. This is a high end neighborhood that is on the outskirts of the Georgetown area, close enough to enjoy its amenities, but far enough away so that the crowds are not a problem. This is not so much a neighborhood as it is a place to live. There is little mingling among neighbors. People pretty much stay to themselves. But it's a clean and safe neighborhood, isolated from the grittier parts of the city. If you can afford to live here, then you will find it a good place to set down roots with the family. If you're single and enjoy an active lifestyle, you would be best served in another area of town.
