Every few years there is an article on the Hillcrest neighborhood. Mainly because we have beautiful homes that mimic anything seen in Cleveland Park. Not to mention all three Councilmembers that live in Ward 7 live here. Two things are always consistent about the articles... 1) come see this place in the east with the beautiful homes and 2) Hillcrest is the neighborhood to live in (in so many words).
Yesterday the Washington Examiner had an article entitled "Hillcrest on the Rise". First and foremost Hillcrest never fell to have to "rise" again. BUT more importantly no mention of Fairfax Village. The author describes Hillcrest as "Located roughly between Pennsylvania Avenue, Southern Avenue and Naylor Road, the neighborhood is a collection of single-family homes with large lawns, soaring trees and friendly people."
Now if you know your geography then you know that Fairfax Village is the part of Hillcrest that touches Pennsylvania Ave and Southern Ave. Yet, he specifically states it is a collections of single family homes. ***Sigh*** What about Fairfax Village??? We are garden-style 1940 condominiums.
I'm writing a letter to the author.... ***pouts***
