Are We Really That Indifferent To Neighborhoods?

Now, I realize that Daily Candy is just trying to help out one of their sponsors, but are we as bad as the author there suggests? “Folks in these parts just don’t seem to take the same pride in their neighborhoods as those in other towns.”

Sure, we’re no Chicago or New York in terms of our love for neighborhoods and names, and the District doesn’t officially recognize the names of the neighborhoods here, but I’d say there’s some serious love for the neighborhood in DC. Jenn even feels bad she can’t get into the ANC meeting!

What say you readers? Are we as neighborhood apathetic as Daily Candy says? If you’re feeling like you want to represent, though, check out DistrictTees or

    I think that’s total bull. People around here are very proud of their neighborhoods, to the point of getting all smackdown about potential changes to names (think Shaw’s Little Ethiopia fight. hell, think any time anyone says Logan East instead of Shaw!). Who writes for Daily Candy in DC anyway, isn’t it a NYC based operation? Grrr… more perpetuation of stereotype that there’s no DC pride.
