I'd love to embrace "Millennialism" and be car-free, but the inconsistency in transit options in parts of North Arlington is difficult-- there is minimal bus service and a lack of bikeshare stations, even near Marymount University.

Also, what happened to the plan to extend the bike path beside Washington boulevard south of rt. 50? I thought that they were going to connect Columbia Pike to Crystal City and the Pentagon City Mall? I heard a lot about it three years ago but it has felt like deafening silence since then...

The Millennial age range (30-50) is the ideal time to continue with the musical and theatrical skills learned in school or college. Families and... more »
