Everything seems to be falling into place for a vacation. Looks like I might end up in VA for the 2nd week of July with a buddy of mine (he has an MR-2). I'm trying to look at flights and prices would be kinda of neat to put faces to names.

i think its a city in MD, but it probably has many stripper joints, and also since its MD there is a gunstore(slash)liquorstore every couple feet.

I think Wikipedia sums it up good

Quote:
Anacostia's population remained predominantly White up until the 1950s, with Whites comprising 87% of the population. During the 1950s, the Anacostia Freeway (I-295) was constructed. The highway imposed a barrier between the Anacostia neighborhood and the Anacostia River waterfront. Numerous public housing apartment complexes were also built in the neighborhood. With flight of much of the middle class out of the neighborhood during the 1950s, Anacostia's demographics changed dramatically as the neighborhood became predominantly African-American. Shopping, dining, and entertainment facilities throughout greater Anacostia became and are still minimal and scanty, so that residents often must travel to either the suburbs or downtown Washington for these services.

...As of the 2000 Census, Anacostia's population is 92% African-American, 5% Non-hispanic White, and 3% other. After decades of neglect, crime has been a major problem in this area of the city. In 2005, 62 of Washington, D.C.'s 195 homicides occurred in the 7th District of the Metropolitan Police Department, which also includes the neighborhoods of Barry Farm, Naylor Gardens, and Washington Highlands. This figure is down from the 7th District's peak of 133 homicides in 1993 [1].
