So yesterday, we checked out some smoking properties that are (DC) affordable for a neighborhood everyone is scrambling to get into. But if you don't have the cash to buy in the U Street Corridor, maybe you can swing renting in this hot hood? If that's the case, make sure you still have some dollars post-rent to hit up the POTUS's greasy spoon, Taylor Gourmet, or a late-night DJ-fest at the Black Cat. Happy hunting.
