I've lived here for more than 40 years. I'm staying in my house as long as I'm upright. It's incredibly convenient. I can walk to everything - bank, grocery store, dry cleaners. I don't feel isolated. I have great neighbors. I used to be a member of the Capitol Hill Art League and sold some of my paintings there. I am a member of the Capitol Hill Restoration Society.
