UT Reader Asks: Priced Out of 14th Street, What Are My Options?: Figure 1

In this installment of UrbanTurf Reader Asks, a DC resident who had hoped to live on the bustling 14th Street Corridor finds himself priced out and looking for other options.

A recent article on Greater Greater Washington about the increasingly posh 14th Street Corridor made me realize that, even after years of saving, I probably can't afford to live on the corridor. A couple years ago, I thought I would probably buy a condo somewhere along the avenue but, with the speed of development, I don't think I can find anything in my price range anymore.

Where should I look next? I am not all that inclined to head up to Columbia Heights, but I hear good things about 11th Street. Bloomingdale is a little too far east for my liking and it seems like it is primarily townhouses, rather than condos. Thanks for any ideas!
