I'm a proud DC resident! I was born in DC, at Georgetown University Hospital, where my pediatrician father had gone to Medical School, and lived in various neighborhoods in NE DC and finally moving into Maryland. In 1992 I moved back to DC and have been here ever since. To say I love living in the city is an understatement. I love exploring the city - the neighborhoods, the parks, the culture and the businesses and restaurants.
Did you know that DC placed fourth on WalletHub’s 2019 list of Greenest Cities in America? It was the only city in the top ten that is not on the West Coast. DC has the lowest percentage of commuters who commute by car and the city is the most bike-friendly community in the US according to the League of American Bicyclists!
DC is also the seventh most walkable large city in the U.S., and we have more farmers markets than any other city – 8.2 markets per 100,000 residents! We also have more green space than most cities, with 592 square feet per person.
And what about the trees? We all know about the Cherry Blossom trees around the Tidal Basin. But what about the rest of the trees? Did you know DC has about 2,000,000? They line our streets, shade our houses, and beautify our city. In fact, DC is one of several cities with the monikers "City of Trees" and a "City Within a Park." I feel so fortunate to live here!
PS. Speaking of green and parks and trees: I currently have a lovely listing in NW DC's Chevy Chase neighborhood, located directly across from the park. If you are a nature enthusiast please check out the listing- right here on my website.
