It's hot this week, and with Fourth of July around the corner, the city's roof decks and balconies will be smoking. With barbecue that is. This is a nabe everyone knows about, but only few have the wherewithal (or cajones or gumption or whatever) to move over to this hood. And where can you score some of the best views of the Mall in the city? Well, in Dupont, of course. In this nabe, if your cash is limited, you can grab a studio and the rare affordable one bedroom. But what you lack in space, you make up for with style and access.
