More on the U St. Corridor

Saturday night I took the Metro up to U St., dined at Saint-Ex, went to the 9:30 club, ogled the Ellington Condominiums and Sala Thai, and dreamt of living in such a cool neighborhood.

Today I read in the Times that this will be a fiction for me, simply because of the incredibly booming property values. I bought in Virginia a year or so ago, and my property is up about 20%, but I’ll be damned if I’ll be able to afford much more than I’m already breaking myself with.

Of course, I can still want…and play the Powerball…

    Ah yes, my neighborhood IS seriously cool. Sorry to rub it in. But I just have to, because when we bought our house there five years ago people took great glee in telling us that we “just made the worst financial decision ever!” Who’s laughing now?!

    No really, gloating aside, I do sympathize – lots of friends are trying to buy their first house now and are totally priced out.
