What do you like about Washington DC?
Good climate, close to national parks, lots of green space and public places.

What do you dislike about Washington DC?
Too many transient residents and migrants. The housing market has become dysfunctional, and it is almost impossible to afford a house in an increasing number of neighborhoods. Also, the DC arts community is virtually dead at this point.

What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in?
Silver Spring, Tenley Circle, Nat'l Arboretum

How expensive is it?
Very expensive.

Is it safe?
Average for a large city, with lots of variation between neighborhoods.

How is the weather?
Excellent. Mild winters and hot summer. Lots of rain makes for beautiful verdant vegetation and great gardening. Unlike the NW, rains comes in short dramatic thunderstorms, instead of constant drizzle. Long Spring and Autumns. With the right clothes, it is outdoor weather 12 months out of the year.

Additional thoughts?
The city is becoming increasingly divided between rich white professional migrants and middle-class white and black natives. Local residents and businesses are being pushed out by redevelopment plans intended to bring in chain businesses and transient residents.
