Crystal City — None/10 Rating (based on 6 neighborhood reviews)
There is a grocery store in Pentagon City and it is open 24 hours. It is a very nice location and feels extremely safe. There are plenty of places to eat around Crystal City (ranging from Chick-fil-a/Chipotle to expensive steakhouses). Also Pentagon City has a extremely large mall, and a Costco as well.

Overall, Crystal City is a great place to live, and often overlooked when compared to Pentagon City. This is a pretty suburban area, with a mix of homes and apartment complexes. There are tons of restaurants nearby, and it's enjoyable since they're mostly walking distance. Added perk - Arlington Public Library tucked into the neighborhood between the main Crystal City area and surrounding Pentagon City area.

Generally a more commercial area, so it is pretty quiet at night. Crystal Drive is full of cool restaurants and bars.

It is close to almost everything. Metro? Check. Mall? Check. Grocery store? Check. Place to eat and drink? you betcha. I feel safe walking around at night. The only draw back is that there is a fire station close by and you get to hear the wailing of the sirens. You get use to them though.

Crystal House
Lots of food options, but kind of a dead area on weekends, and it is all high-rises (so many office buildings) in the main area. But close to both Pentagon City and Alexandria (Old Town), and the upcoming Potomac Yards area, so it is convenient even if the neighborhood itself lacks charm.

good location to airport, 395, dc. Metro accessible. Lots of offices. Some good chain food options but not many fun interesting restaurants. Not much night life. A few bars but they have bad live music. Sports bar is good. Lower rent than DC or Clarendon
