The ‘Hood Gets a Satirical Shoutout posted a video this morning on “Sh*t People in DC Say,” poking fun at all the trite remarks often uttered in the nation’s capital. Among the popular phrases, our little neighborhood got some big mention:

“Eckington is basically like the new Bloomingdale. Shaw is like the next Columbia Heights. Navy Yard is like the new Eckington.”


“Let’s get some grilled cheese at Big Bear.”

SocialStudies says that “whether you’re a native Washingtonian or a DC transplant, chances are you’ve heard people say all of these . . . sometimes in one night.”

Check it out!

  1. I am loving the blog and especially loved this video. As a military transplant and new owner of a home in Eckington, I hope to add to and enjoy the neighborhood!
