Other than being the capital of the U.S., D.C. is known for having a predominantly Black population (not counting those that live in the outside suburbs, but go to work in the city). From this large Black population, D.C. has developed a very distinctive culture including its Go-Go music, mambo sauce, and style of dress for the younger population (a style that is very different from other metro areas that imitate NYC for the most part). And, like many other large metro area, the people here have a their own slang and accent, one that is cross-bred from both the South and the North. Despite the recent developement projects going on there, the SouthEast section of DC is popularly known as the most dangerous area of the town. In addition, many long-time DC residents have been moving to the bordering counties such as Prince George's County, MD, Charles County, MD, and Alexandria, VA.
I can tell you're from Washington DC, because you're accent doesn't have a heavy drawl like the Dirty South, but it definitely ain't New York or Philly.

An off-brand washing machine sold exclusively in America that can cleanse your soul of communism.
Person 1: what’s Washington DC? Is that a city or something?

Person 2: you got it all wrong. It’s actually a type of off-brand washing machine.

The capitol city of the United States that has surprisingly quickly became a fierce rival to the Barnum and Bailey Circus Group. Washington DC is known particularly for providing quality entertainment to the entire world through its one of its oldest attractions, the "Congress".
Washington DC is home of the three-ring government, and Barnum and Bailey is home of the three-ring circus.

A very bizarre city with a largely African American population. Very high cost of living in certain area's. Very high crime in most of the city actually most of the crime occurs in Northeast to Southwest that is 3/4 of the city. Not all of northwest is all great and rich either. As a matter of "FACT" The District of Columbia has had a higher crime rate than New York City and Los Angeles CA since 1995 till now (2008).the city has all of the dumbest tourist from around the world jam packed into this city. We got our own slang out here like no where else (Lunchin, Joe, Bamma, Ja) as most cities do. And our own way of eating Chinese food (Mambo Sauce not available in Baltimore or surrounding Virginia). And our own style of music,(go-go). Overall one of the best cities to live in. Filled with nightlife, packed with nightclubs. And one of the highest AIDS rates in America (35.5 per 100,000.) For a funny way to see how bad D.C. really is go to Spotcrime.com or Google in compare crime rates and see for yourself. WELCOME TO D.C.

DC is divided up into four quadrants. NorthWest DC, SouthEast,SouthWest,and NorthEast. Northwest is very rich for the most part, with the majority of homes selling for over a million dollars, more private schools than you could count and a very preppy population. Not much crime here. Dc is amazing except for all the goddamn tourists who try to ruin everything by being fat and obnoxious.
Wow, I just went to the Maret bball game and they dominated. Maret is amazing. Tourists suck.
