    H Street–still a complete unlivable shithole.

    • Jesse

      This is a terrible comment.

    • John Smith 1882

      versus other areas of the city with crime, other areas of the country?

    • DC Dude

      Not a shithole but definitely overhyped and overpriced

  • John Smith 1882

    People still have gold teeth? really?

    It’s not that common. I’m hoping the detectives are scouring dentist offices.
