This was a typical main street in DC. I've never seen such a dense city with no high-rises (due to the Washington Monument height limit). Blocks and blocks for miles were 6-12 storey street walls.

Here is a brand new neighbourhood we checked out in midtown DC. Again, no high-rises. All 6-12 storey range. Mostly 8-12.
Rain gardens in the sidewalk, street parking, bike lanes, wide sidewalks and parking underground.
