    I'd have to agree with article when it points out that the change in demographics in downtown DC has as much to do with it being seen as a good location as the lower rents compared the NYC. Plus, as the article points out, DC economic market is more stable than other areas. There will always be gov't jobs, lawyers and lobbyists...except now many of them live in the city instead of the 'burbs.

                Rhodes, this thread brought you out of your exile and after not posting on these boards for over a year??

                 

                Might you be a lobster roll follower a la a "dead head"?

                  Yes, local lobster lured me out of lurking.
                  No, I have not been Lobster Truckin' but one of these days I know I better get going.

                    Greymo, it was on Massachusettes Avenue between 2nd and 1st St  NE. (Close to Senate Office Buildings and Union Station).
                     
                     
                    Rhodes, thanks for the link!  (only, I found out too late they're here near my building on the House Side) I'll have to catch this next time around.
