Birds of a Feather

Or better yet, “neighborhoods you’ll never live in,” this interesting little map I found on Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space is a very telling.

Note how the high-dollar folks are concentrated along the Potomac River, elevating it more than say Connecticut Avenue or Route 66, as the wealth artery through our fair city.

My only question is why the big pink patch below Route 66, seemingly in the middle of nowhere.

What might that be, and why?

    Looks like the Manassas-Clifton area. Perhaps centered along the Occoquan, in keeping with your waterfront property theory.

    Seconded, Carl. Google maps seems to confirm that it is Manassas.

    Who knew there that was much money in Manassas? I for one would have never guessed.

    A better question: if you have that much money, what the hell are you doing in Manassas??

    “A better question: if you have that much money, what the hell are you doing in Manassas??”

    Probably saving up and planning your escape from the metro area.

    What are people doing in Manassas or Clifton?
    Not buying houses like this, which would cost $8 million in more prestigious Great Falls, VA, or Potomac, MD.

    I’ve seen it for sale since January, and they were asking 3.5 mil back then.

    Isn’t that area Middleburg? The real estate there is pretty hot and lots of VERY wealthy people (Hollywood, Redskins) are buying up the area.
