I've never lived in the DC area before and so I was hoping to get some neighborhood suggestions. I'd like to live somewhere that could get me to Union station relatively easily (I will be working nearby). I am looking for a studio or 1 bedroom in the 1500-2000 price range. I'm also wondering about taking my car. Is it helpful to have a car in DC? Finally, if there are realtors who help with rentals I would be interested in working with you.
