I was suprised to get to know that Arlington County is among the most densely populated jurisdictions in the USA. The population density is 7,700 persons per square mile. It's more than in a city of Seattle, Cleveland or Pittsburgh. Difficult to believe.
A lot of area is covered by green space of Arlington National Cemetery and Fort Myer, add huge Pentagon building and large areas covered by multilane highways and freeways. Hmm... in some European cities, they started to register homeless people... on a bench, just to give them any address and thus to be able to pay them some public financial assistance. In the USA folks even don't have any identity paper (social security, driving licence or credit card instead). I do suspect that noone is registered to live, say, in the Pentagon Building. Senior Defense Officials' mailing addresses including the Secretary of Defence, Donald Rumsfeld now (2005) suprisingly belong to Washington, DC instead of Arlington.
More, look at my picture, there is large, empty meadow located in the heart of Rosslyn, by I-66. Very good location for next business. Hmm... I would put there some large sculptures/art to make the place more pleasant for an eye.
