daily snapshot: spot the poor people

Where's the MPDU (Gatestone, White Oak)
Thinking of Gatestone, the White Oak subdivision whose residents fear a new rec center will bring crime to the neighborhood, I'm reminded of Stonegate, the similarly-named neighborhood a little further up New Hampshire Avenue that's also known for being more than a little stuck-up. In middle and high school, it was "where the rich kids lived," a place with big houses, big parties and even their own swim club.

And just like Stonegate, Gatestone's required by the county to set aside some housing for lower-income residents. Can you spot the subsidized units in this photo? Would the neighbors know that they're there - and, if they do, would they say it's bringing crime to the cul-de-sac as well?
