Oddly enough, no. We found a place that had quite a bit of wooded area between it and the highway, and Fort Washington is not one of the most bustling suburban areas around DC. Although most of the units around us were occupied most also seemed to be used mainly for long-term storage which meant not a lot of staff comings-and-goings or loading going on.

There were two storefront churches - most busy on weekends, obviously - and the three or four businesses that were active during the week weren't retail and kept hours in the 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM range.

We used directional mikes and got pretty clean sound on just about everything. If there had been real weather - a thunderstorm, say - during the shoot that would have been a problem, but we lucked out there.
