I ventured into much maligned Southeast DC. The terrain is quite hilly, and many of the neighborhoods have a somewhat disjointed feel. There are lots of housing projects, apartment buildings, and frame houses. The row is not as dominant in this section, although there are areas that have them. There are quite a few derelict properties there, though overall, DC hoods generally don't have the bombed out look that characterizes "the hood" in many other cities.
