17th St and Kalorama Rd

This used to be the wrong side of the tracks in Adams Morgan, to the east of the nightlife hubbub of 18th Street. The kind of area you probably shouldn't be walking around. Now you've got loads of new high(ish)-end housing, including these pricey condos (on the right) above a youth arts center, down near the roller rink that was converted to a Harris Teeter grocery store.

Classic DC case of used to be afraid-to-walk-there, now it's can't-afford-to-live-there.
