As to 14th Street NW -- Just before the major change of the Whole Foods was completed, my dear friend rented a one bedroom for $800/mt in the hood.

Do you know what $800/month will rent you in a city like Atlanta? A large 1 bedroom unit in a nice (if not shiny and new) hi-rise with tons of amenities and surrounded by lots of shops, restaurants, parks and transit, in an area significantly safer than Logan Circle pre-Whole Foods.

I think the fact that this blog post is trying to allude to is that cost of living in DC is expensive in areas that don't provide a lot of livability value, and really, really expensive in areas that provide a lot of livability value - even though there are also lots of people with high incomes.
