The Condominium complex at the corner of Arlington Mill Dr and Walter Reed Dr S.
My realtor told me its a good area that is actually getting even better. Everyone I saw in that complex was mid to late twenties couples, many of which had little kids (fits what we are/will be in 5 years.) I like that the bus stop is RIGHT there, that I can walk to the Village (living in Bethesda now, so this is a big plus for us as we are used to urban style living) and that I am only three miles to Pentagon City and 3-4 miles to the orange line corridor area.
My realtor said west on Four Mile Run is a little sketchy, towards the Columbia Heights West area, but being latino myself, I can't say I'm too scared about it. I lived in Fairfax at one point while at GMU and people said it was dangeous because of MS-13; never really noticed anything bad.
Would you all agree this particular part (Walter Reed and Arlington Mill) is good/safe? Or am I overlooking something?
Also, is Shirlington>Fairlington or vice versa?
