Default Landmark area of Alexandria?

Hi, all! My husband and I are moving to the D.C. area in mid-June. We've been searching for rentals online and have found a potential place in the Landmark area of Alexandria at Armistead and Beauregard streets.

I will be working on K Street NW in D.C. Will living in this area give me a relatively easy (40 minutes or less, using bus and metro) commute? Is it generally pretty safe?

Thanks for any advice you can provide!

You may want to post this on the NoVA forum for more specialized replies.

I just moved out of the Landmark area two weeks ago to KY. I lived east of I-395. Pretty much the area to the West of I-395 is pretty shady but not violent. The most common crime issue there is car break-ins. It is also not a visually appealing neighborhood but then again I don't think anything in NoVA is. It is realtively good for location (compared to most of NoVA) but the Rt. 236 and Beauregard area is a major traffic bottleneck and why I think the East of I-395 area is better plus you have more express buses to the Metro (Van Dorn St) or the Pentagon.

I think the EOS 21 apts (East of I-395) are a little better b/c they are realtively affordable and plus you have the shuttle bus to and from the Metro.
