Hi

I just got a job offer and they want me down there in a month. I found an apartment that I loved online at the Wheaton Metro (Archstone).

How bad a commute would that be to L'Enfant Plaza (I know I have to change trains)?

Or should I look in NoVa?

Ideally I'd like to find an apartment within walking distance to a Metro station.

Thanks in advance..

I looked at Archstone Wheaton, too. I liked it very much but they didn't have a place when I needed to move.
it will take you about 35 min on the train from Wheaton to L'Enfant, if all goes well. The Red Line is a bear (I take it every day) but the location in Wheaton is AWESOME.

NoVa is typically more expensive than MD suburbs, but there are some nice places there too.

Thanks. and ugh, I did not know the red line was a bear. I have friends who live at Archstone properties in NYC and Boston so I know its a good outfit and the location by the Wheaton station is a plus!

I'm more familiar with MD as I had friends that lived in Silver Spring and I used to visit and I like the area...

If you get on at Wheaton, you can normally get a seat. Try not to use it at peak hours to make it easier- use it earlier like 6AM or later like 9:30 AM. The Archstone Wheaton looks like a great place.

Thanks. I onced lived in NYC so standing for me is not an issue, I'm concerned that the red line is unreliable. But I've loved what I saw at the Archstone, they also have a property in Fairfax, VA that looks nice but its 4 miles to the closest metro.

I think the Red Line is reliable, and the location of Archstone can't be beat. I don't know of another apartment in walking distince to Metro that is relatively reasonable.
