Looking for a new place that's a little more "neighborhood-ish" with little shops, restaurants, still fun, but quiet. I'm thinking about Takoma, anyone actually live there? Thoughts on the area?

Eastern Market/Cap Hill east

Might be too quiet. I know a late 30s couple with a 5 yo that lives there and found that small strip of shops pretty meh. Try the east part of Columbia Heights (Sherman Ave, Park View). A lot of new condos and apts opening in the next year on GA Ave. 11th St is cute. Still a decent neighborhood vibe far enough from the U/Logan/AdMo hub bub

I grew up in the dc metro. Silver Spring in general has a more urban feel; not as gentrified. Arlington is also relatively quieter when you’re closer to falls church.

How can I get a security clearance job?

Received my biometrics appointment notice today! EB3, I-485 filed at the end of Oct. Can someone tell me when is the medical/health exam needed? In the instruction my lawyer sent, the next step is to receive the EAD card, and no mention of medical exam. But I heard lots of others mentioned they needed to do the medical exam before the interview?
