Patrick Foley moved to Michigan Park in 2001, lured by the Northeast DC neighborhood’s safety, quiet and green space. “It had such a nice feel to it – lots of large trees on the streets – you didn’t feel like you were in a city,” says Foley. “I’m from Brooklyn – this is like living in the country for me!”

Roz Winegrad was fifth in line last November to purchase a townhome by EYA at Cabin John Village, even though the Potomac, Maryland, development was still just a fenced-in parking lot. The single mom, whose son leaves for college next fall, had been looking at several options to downsize from her large contemporary house in Bethesda. “I was looking for a way to not feel so isolated, and to be part of a community,” she says of the unit she chose that faces Cabin John Regional Park. At the same time, Winegrad will be able to take just a few short steps to the shops and restaurants of the newly updated Cabin John Village. “I think it’s going to be a premier shopping and dining destination without the craziness of downtown Bethesda or Pike & Rose,” she says. “I still want serenity, and I still want a home in an area where there aren’t millions of people every day.”
When it comes to living in a city, proximity is everything. Being close to family and friends, your favorite activities, and planning your commute to work are all equally important factors to consider when choosing a neighborhood. It can be challenging to find a location that balances not only your wants and needs, but the vibrancy of downtown with a quieter, close-knit community you can escape to at the end of the day.

The mornings are turning crisp, the leaves are tinted golden, and you can almost taste the cinnamon and pumpkin flavored pastries on display at your favorite coffee shop. As sweater weather begins and we transition from summer to autumn, Old Town Alexandria embraces more than just the change in weather. With charming brick homes framed by auburn and amber colored trees, the city itself seems like it was designed for the season.
