What is everyone's opinion and take on:

The Lansburgh

The Lexington at Market Square

Does anyone know if there are any type of grocery stores near these apartment rentals?

Any suggestions or recommendations for an individual working at the FBI HQ's?

I need to find a safe and good apartment near-by.

Thanks!

You might find more reviews here:

Are you moving to DC to start a new job, or have you been here for awhile? I generally advise anyone moving to a new city to rent for a few months at first, and then decide where to sign a longer term lease (or buy) a bit later.

The area around the FBI is primarily commercial, but there are a growing number of condos and rentals over toward Chinatown. Whether you want to live there will probably be best answered by you spending a couple hours walking around during the day and the night to see how safe you feel. Same for Capitol Hill, just a few metro stops away from the FBI as well.

I moving to DC/VA area for a good year and probably more. I would like to rent first then buy later a condo once I am comfortable where I am and with my surroundings. Cost and safety are my number one priorities right now as well as location. I have never been in the area, got the call the other day, not much time to look around. Have 5 days to find a place.
