Wow, I've never seen such a long thread over such a non-issue. People in DC hate Arlington? Really?

How could I? Union Station is my favorite building in DC. Although outside of the tiny Express and Barnes and Noble it doesn't offer a lot of retail for ME but the little mall is cute and who doesn't love the architecture?

I'm not saying that it's a positive but it's a component of the urban vibe.

People in DC do not hate Arlington per se but depise VA to a certain degree. It also doesn't help that most VAers have a negative view of the city and try to pass off areas like a Clarendon as "just as urban as Dupont Circle" which is assinine to say the least. VA's night life brings nothing remarkable to the table. I don't see people clamoring to get to Clarendon to party on the weekends.

I think this video sums up why people hate Arlington. "You can meet me at the Starbucks, or the Starbucks, or the Starbucks, or the Starbucks, or the Starbucks, or the Starbucks, or the Starbucks, or the Starbucks."

No one's saying you need to go to Clarendon, but that's an entirely different argument than what you were making previously.

I think DC has the most Starbucks per capita in the country. At least, that was the case two or three years ago. Not certain if it still is.

It's not about the Starbucks. It's the entire Yuppie, sterile image of Arlington portrayed in the video, which is often associated with Starbucks.
