Maybe that person is going to a Nationals baseball game, that are is in southeas. But in all seriousness, thank you for calling this out. People have this irrational fear about "Southeast" without even understanding what it means, Eastern Market and Barracks Row are in the southeast quadrant. But more importantly, people need to get over the idea that stepping foot inside Wards 7&8 are so dangerous. We moved to Ward 8 a little over a year ago and lived in Ward 6 before that, both in Southeast. I have felt generally safe in both places but need to be aware of my surroundings in both. Ward 8 has a lot to offer people and is affordable to live in, plus we love our neighbors.
