Want to compare Old Town to Crystal City? I can tell you there are huge differences in the lifestyles, the types of homes and the commutes in these two neighboring villages. But I can't really quantify that information. Fortunately, I don't have to. Our site has a great tool for researching and comparing neighborhoods, with information about schools, education, incomes, age of homes and more. In the meantime, over the next few days I expect to run a few reports and publish them to give you an idea of what you can learn about neighborhoods of Northern Virginia. By the way, what's nice about this system is that you can use it to compare any neighborhoods in North America. See how Lansing stacks up to Fairfax, or how Falls Church does vs. Peoria. The research engine is here. 22202 (Crystal...

Some folks describe Pentagon City as one of Arlington's freshest and most fashionable neighborhoods. Pentagon City is a place of shops, restaurants and homes just paces from the Pentagon. Pentagon City well known for the the Fashion Centre , a multi-floored shopping mall, but there is a lot more to this little community. There is plenty of hourly parking for the mall and around Pentagon City, but many visitors arrive via the Pentagon City Metro station---an underground stop on the both Yellow Line and Blue Line. Exiting the underground passage to the street Pentagon City sparkles with new construction and well-kept structures.

The Eclipse at Center Park is a condominium community located alongside Four Mile Run in Arlington County where Crystal City meets Alexandria's Potomac Yard. The community backs to the Yellow Line and Blue Line where the metro bridges Four Mile Run. There is no metro stop at the Eclipse, though there is talk that a stop is coming within 5 to 10 years near Potomac Yard and/or the Eclipse. Nonetheless, the Eclipse is a paragon of convenience, with regular bus shuttles circling from through Crystal City and the Eclipse. The Eclipse has a number of great amenities worth checking out including a pool and workout area, but for now we're focusing on a collection of social amenities found on the seventh floor of the east tower. On this floor you'll find a modern and stylish party room. From th...

The Representative is located where Arlington Ridge Road terminates. The road here makes a hairpin-turn on a promontory overlooking I-395, Crystal City, Arlington, the Pentagon and Washington DC. This location gives the Representative superb views of the Potomac and Northern Virginia and put the Representative near the heart of the action, and at the same time a little off the beaten track. In the summer the trees and foliage fill the view with greenery and add to the charm of the Representative. If you've never seen the Representative, you need to put it on your list if you're shopping near Crystal City, Fort Meyer, Rosslyn and Pentagon City.

Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, formerly Washington National Airport, is on the Potomac across the river from Washington DC. Along with Baltimore Washington International and Dulles International, Reagan National is one of three major airports serving the Washington Metro area. Reagan National is easily my favorite of the three airports for a number of reasons. Dulles and BWI are massive sprawling airports with shuttle buses and mobile lounges. Reagan National barely has enough room for the runway. I always like smaller airports. They feel like they are scaled to human beings. There is plenty of security at National, but it seems to move along more smoothly than Dulles or BWI. Dulles and BWI are outside the Beltway at the periphery of the Washington Capitol Area.  Reagan Nat...

Residents of Crystal City enjoy a remarkably convenient lifestyle. Centered along a stretch of Jefferson Davis Highway (U.S. 1), Crystal City consists of a dramatic streetscape of office buildings, hotels, high-rise apartment buildings, shops and restaurants – all shaded by trees and linked by brick sidewalks. But the area’s real charm is hidden from view – literally. Crystal City is so designed that residents east of Route One can traverse the city’s entire length, north to south, through a system of climate-controlled underground concourses. Sheltered from extremes of heat and cold, rain and snow, residents of Crystal Gateway can walk from home to the Crystal City Metro station in less than 10 minutes. After work, they have a multitude of options at the Crystal City Shopping Arcade, a...
