    Perhaps a house within short distance of the opera house?

    Unfortunately there's only a small music hall in this city where they can do recitals or chamber works. The closest music hall where they perform opera is five to six hours away but at least it's there.

    Some of you might recall this view from my condo of the DC skyline. Late last fall, Amazon announced they would be initiating an HQ2 project, split into two new locations: NYC and Arlington, VA (in the last few weeks, Amazon backed out of the NYC piece of the project).

    Long story, shortened, is that the Arlington piece will be only a short walk from my building, likely creating an enormous traffic problem. Additionally, because one of the building sites almost certainly will be allowed to re-zone from residential to commercial, the local area's residentlal need will be mostly squeezed into what currently is an apartment house parking lot -- directly beneath my balcony. My friends in the building are concerned a huge development in the parking lot will threaten our views. I am assigned to a building committee that will try and find ways to convince local government to be verrrrry careful in deciding how they approach any re-zoning applications.

    That's a real worry. Fingers crossed you won't lose that spectacular view.
