We just moved here from Loudoun in February and are right in the middle of the area most people are talking about -- Patriot/Heritage. It has been a fantastic experience for us. I've heard a lot of people knock the neighborhood in general, and our apartment complex in particular, but we couldn't be happier. Love everything about it, except 236 on a Saturday afternoon!

I'm curious about Father Scannel? Where was his grave? I got together for my HS Reunion and Father Scannel is always a topic of conversation ... he was feared by many and even non-Catholics had heard of him.

I graduated from TJ in 1968, but those things you mention were around back then. We partied in DC, not Georgetown ... Georgetown was my sister's generation.

We liked living in that area, too, for the most part - great for commuting, short walk to Heritage shopping center, close to Wakefield Park, etc.

For a time there seemed to be a spike in crime in the Patriot/Heritage area. But I haven't read anything for a while about any major incidents - just the occasional (usually vehicle) property crimes you have at every apartment complex.

My wife and I left NoVA in 91, and moved to a small town in Southern Vermont........very quiet and peaceful. When my dad bought the house in Sleepy Hollow, we thought Annandale was the absolute end of the world, there was not much beyond the beltway.........I worked at the Annandale theater for a few years, and also at Cameron Station in the PX.......is that still there?.......anyway it was a good time overall........The person who mentioned Father Scannell.......I recall him standing in the road, can't think of the name of it, directing traffic in and out of the church, was it Ravensworth Road?
It was St. Michael's Lane where Fr. Scannell directed traffic from church parking lot

azb is spot on.

I've lived in Annandale for 4 years - inside the beltway, off Gallows. We feed into Woodburn, Luther Jackson, and Falls Church. Our neighborhood is largely older people, but it's turning now. There starting to be more families with young children and we're all making friends with each other. Great community feel. We take walks regularly through the neighborhood and we always see other neighbors out and stop to chat. I wouldn't say our neighborhood is largely Asian - just that Korean/Vietnamese is the largest minority group. Not many African American people. But that breakdown probably changes from neighborhood to neighborhood. Not like it matters, anyway, we like all of our neighbors. I didn't get that community feel from other places I've lived in the DC area. All of our neighbors say they had a great experience with the schools - and anyone who says bad stuff doesn't acutally have kids at these schools. You never know what your kid will be like and what they will benefit from. I think the teacher makes a bigger difference than the school overall. The plus of Falls Church HS is it's small - so it's much easier to get on the sports teams and be involved in different activities. I feel completly safe here - have even forgotten to lock my car a few times and nothing has happened overnight. We love all of the development happening along Gallows. It's super easy to get everywhere. It's a great area, I think you'll be happy here.
