    I don't recall this. I do remember the Ford plant being kind of spooky. Old Town was a bit of a mess 30 years ago. I remember looking at townhouses on Prince Street near the Metro. They could be had...

    This is a total no brainer. There are issues with deliveries and with the people who live and park in condos across from the Torpedo Factory but they've been solved in other cities many times.
