Arlington neighborhoods

I’ve visited the YMCA in Arlington a half dozen times or so over the past few weeks, where I’ve been using their pool. Except for one day when I was short on time and took Uber there after work, I had been running there and back from Georgetown. But the day I took Uber, I had my phone—so I took these photos. It’s a changing neighborhood with a lot of different architectural styles all within the same block or so:

The little bungalows remind me a lot of the little bungalows in Napa that I saw when I ran through their little neighborhoods two years ago. And the newer and larger places are generally great, conserving classical aesthetics that include symmetry and porches and eves. A lot of Arlington’s neighborhoods are in transition like this—little places built after World War II being replaced by $1.5 million+ homes.
