City Paper is not for tourists
Forbes‘ latest list-y edition puts the D.C. region at No. 4 for most affluent community in the country (McLean was McMansioned out by Dallas ‘burb Southlake, NYC ‘burb Darien, CT, and San Francisco ‘burb Los Altos), but on the shittiest commute front, we’re No. 1.
According to the mag, D.C. is “by far the worst part of the country for small-city commutes. Of the 100 small towns with the longest commutes, 18 are in Maryland and 10 are in Virginia—-all of which are in the suburban sprawl radiating from Washington and Baltimore.”
Eat that, Texas.
