    I suppose the Arlington transplant in the article never noticed when the park sign at the corner of Lee Highway and Sycamore had the first letter replaced with another…

    Miss Kitten cat:  “North Arlington: Yuppies, Old/Retired couples, Wealthy families, Newlyweds, Rich Graduate Students.”  Wait, I live in North Arlington, but I’m not any of these things!  Do I need to move?  Or, am I a Yuppie and I don’t know it?  That’s awful!

    Don’t sweat it, QtR – I didn’t realize I was a minority, had a young family with small children,  or was part of an unmarried couple either.

    So if I’m following this correctly – unmarried couples live in South Arlington, they get married and move to North Arlington, then have kids and move back to South Arlington, then get old/retire and move back to North Arlington?

    Unless they’re Yuppies, because I think then they can stay.

    Does this hipster douchebag know Fugazi and Dischord Records and alot of the rest of the DC punk scene was born in Arlington?

    @NoVap0logist: You almost nailed my experience to a T.  My wife and I lived in sin and as a married couple in North Arlington, moved to South Arlington when I went to grad school and couldn’t afford North Arlington, moved back to North Arlington when I got a job after grad school, and moved to South Arlington again when our second child was almost here.

    @sansabelt, not sure if Tru Fax and the Insaniacs were DC or VA born, but one of their best songs was “Arlingtron” with the line, ” “I used to work as a waitron in the lounge at the Hiltron. Now I work for my Senatron and I live in Arlingtron.”  I guess they didn’t think Arlingtron was too stuck up then! :-)

    Hmm, my husband used the dreaded words “middle-aged” when describing me last night…we need to move out of S. Arlington!
