wow...i was shocked to see the navy yard area in southeast dc named as the ninth most dangerous neighborhood in the country! really? i dont think so, but they have the stats to prove it. this neighborhood is near capitol hill, and i have lot of friends who live there, including mann of mannmade designs...and hello cupcake is opening their second branch there...do i even need to mention the marines (hot, but dont ask and dont tell)? this hood is filled with great shops, great restaurants and great people. i have never felt threatened or frightened when visiting, and most everyone on the street says 'hello!', which is typical of most places in dc and its surrounding burbs...so, all i am saying is, its worth the risk to go and hang out there, but watch your back, i guess!
