Two reasons my wife and I didn't buy in Anacostia

1) We visited a place multiple times, during different hours and we were noticeably stared at every time...and not in a nice way. We're whitey-white btw...and she compared the stares to those she got while in the Peace Corps in W. Africa, except more hostile (vs. curious in W. Africa).

2) We didn't see a potential upside for at least 5 years, probably closer to 10-15 (this was 2009), and much of that was contingent on the development of St. E's. We got the same/more house for about the same money a block outside DC.
