Filed under: Anacostia Anacostia Week Friday Open Thread What Is It Like Living in Anacostia? Tell us your experiences By Michelle Goldchain@goldchainam Jun 17, 2016, 12:05pm EDT Welcome to Friday Open Threads, wherein we'll pass the mic to readers to speak up about topics of interest, distress, horror, etc. Have something you want discussed? Let us know This week, Curbed DC has been focusing on the ins and outs of Anacostia, from what it once looked like to the most touristy sites to the priciest real estate the neighborhood has to offer. While Curbed has asked residents their views on what it’s like to live in Anacostia, it’s time to ask our readers what their experiences have been. What are the highlights of living in Anacostia? Is it the housing? The people? What are the downsides? Would you ever move there, or if you do live there, would you ever want to leave? Let Curbed know in the comments.
