I currently live in Connecticut and have been traveling to DC, where my boyfriend lives, since January. We've decided to move in together but I can't get over how busy the capital is. I've visited Arlington and Alexandria and think that either of these two cities would be a better match for us. We are looking into renting a one bedroom/one bath up to $1400 with a major concern for safety. We aren't picky but do not want to deal with questionable neighbors and I'd love to be able to walk around without worry..

some places that have caught my eye during my search:

Filmore garden apts
Serrano apts
Dorchester Towers
Wildwood park
barton house apts
wildwood towers
westmont gardens
dolley madison towers
shirlington house

any input would be greatly appreciated

- I should inform you that I'm from a city where crime is pretty much everywhere... from petty to murder(mostly in surrounding bigger cities). I'm used to it, but tired of living around it. After reading some posts, I'm starting to think that what may be considered "ghetto" in these parts may not really be that ghetto at all (atleast what I'm used to).
