    Everything is long done but not sure that’s Ft Myer Heights. 1600 block is over on the other side of Route 50 which I don’t think is Ft. Myer Heights.

      Listen, they make a concerted effort to over-name every area in the county and they don’t need you nitpicking it. You’re probably one of those people who grew up here who think you know the county better than the interlopers in charge. Know your place, native.
