$2k seems very low. The dorm route might work well.

Hell, even places a few stops away on the Metro North might be a good option.

I also don't like being served. It creeps me out when people tell me about these freakshow resorts in the South where they get ridiculous "service." I don't need a guy to grind the mint for a julep at the table. I don't want the guy with my luggage to address me as Colonel. And I don't care about horse races.

Keep your antebellum "charms" to yourself.
Missouri ain't what you're considering the Bible Belt. And St. Louis sure as hell isn't. Based on what you said, I had to look it up and I guess technically it qualifies. But it ain't reality. Missouri is just fucking crazy.

ok, raising expectation to 3K a month - so about 10K for the summer.

If it gets much beyond that, she may have to stay with a Trumpie family member in Jersey.

There is a strange student dorm right at the Clark subway. It would actually be a great location- near Dumbo and many other cool Bk locations. IN the Heights, technically, but it seems on its own. I don't think it is tied to any one school.

I guess so, because I don't recall what you said about this.

QED DC Metro was first tourist paths, and then expanded to where people (especially poor people) live. When i lived there lots of the higher end parts of NW had no subway, but i thought a lot of that had been corrected with the expansion. I guess I assumed GTown had something to do with the earth there? there is a reason Rosslyn has the longest escalator. But Foggy Bottom is a long way away.

I am pretty sure I lived there before you ever did, and the post I just linked was before yours too.

I don't like to talk about it, but in 72 I was there to get a Medal of Honor from Nixon for some black ops I did in Cambodia.

It's part of that continuum of backward, culturally and racially segregated states through the lower-mid-section of the country. Draw a line from SW Maryland to Little Rock, and include 500 miles north and south of it (including all of AL, MS, and the FL panhandle). I've no use for any of its "charms."
