Is your apartment building owned and operated by a large company (e.g., Charles E. Smith)? If so, perhaps it is possible to transfer to an apartment building run by the same company in a part of town that is more conducive to street parking. It's not like Foggy Bottom is a great part of DC in which to be living anyways.

There are a butt-load of lots, but for the short term, you might want to check the City Paper, Craig's List, and the like to see if some student or professor is leaving town for the summer and wants to rent his/her spot to you. Before we moved in together, my wife rented her parking space for her condo (she lived in a similarly congested area, Adams-Morgan) at a monthly rate. The question is (and I'm not the first to wonder), will you really need your car that much to incur the expense?

Georgetown University has parking lots and a very light summer school crowd. You might check with them to see if you could park over there.

I guess I'll have to call around when I get down there. The place is right next to GW (google map). As for parking with the school, I believe you have to be a register student to get a permit on their lots. I've also looked around on craigslist but there's nothing so far. BTW, the apartment is in Bon Wit Plaza.
