    Where in or around DC would a person making less than 60k a year rent? It's rather pricey and I don't understand how I am supposed to live within the city limits on this salary.

    • the usual guideline is that gross annual household income should be at least 40 times monthly rent. working back from an income of $60k, that would translate to $1500/month in rent. in DC that generally means a studio apartment. In close-in Virginia, you can find a small one-bedroom for that amount. it will be in an older building without the bells and whistles.
