26. Ok, I see you're in DC. So am I.
Where is this affordable housing you speak of? The only thing I can think of is the condos that supposedly start at $200 monthly that someone is building right behind my dorm, close to the Cardozo stop. I, personally think that price is a crock of shit, but who knows. The lowest efficiency/1 bedroom I've seen is at $600-700. The rest is sky high. I don't know about the outlying areas, although I've heard that Takoma park is affordable. The only thing being put up in DC is luxury apts, not affordable housing.

And I really appreciate that comment about environmental laws being the cause of high prices. Real nice.
