Thank you for "rescue" me from under the bus!!! As I said before, great & convenient area to live! Great location to drive to & from DC, Ft Belvoir, Huntington Metro. We are on our second purchased home since moving to the area 13 years ago and we CHOSE to stay in the zip code 22306, Richmond Hwy.area.
Lee District Park. My community is Vantage Kingsbrook and since we have only one way in or out
crime has not been a problem. The community has changed over the years by the the people are all
very friendly and helpful. 22306 is a great place to raise your family or retire like me.
I take exception to the statement: John makes below, "The 22306 Zip code area defines a secondary area: the only reason people live there is that they cannot afford their home style of choice in a more highly sought after location." Nothing could be further from the truth. 22306 has some of the nicest homes and neighborhoods in Northern Virginia. Residents of 22306 are remarkably close to the Metro, Alexandria VA, the Potomac River and I-495.
In addition to having some of the finest neighborhoods in Northern Virginia, the same Zip code has some of the most affordable homes in Northern Virginia. So 22306, like much of the Mount Vernon District of Fairfax County, is one of the area's most economically diverse neighborhoods.
I highly recommend you find an agent who knows what they are talking about.

If you are looking for an affordable place to live in a rental, you should take a long, hard look at the town of Reston. The Reston homeowners' association is totally intolerant of bad behavior. The question is, can you stand the commute?
Very subjective question... you may find statistical information about crime & other offences on the Fairfax Co site.
I personally had lived on zip code 22306 for the last 12 years and love my community and the surrounding Mt. Vernon area.
