No Paradise or Appeal

I disagree with the advice given in an article on Washington, D.C. (“A Visit to Adams Morgan Neighborhood Area of Washington, D.C., Shows Good Taste,” Dec. 2). Adams Morgan is no paradise and has no appeal. It is a city district that is dirty and crime-ridden. The restaurants are second-rate, the browsing is minimal and tacky, the entertainment, with the exception of tap dancer Johne Forge of Cafe Lautrec, is limited to the clubs mentioned by the author. Too bad she didn’t warn your readers about the open drug dealing, ethnic gangs, high cover charges and pervasively lousy music.
