... but Stefano says he's at 2451 18th Street NW, not NE.  You put him  
36 blocks away from his actual location.  :-)

Unfortunately Google couldn't come up with a match for that address,  
but there's an International Student House at 1825 R St NW, which I  
think is the same building but facing the other street.  In that case,  
you're only about a mile away (twelve blocks or so), which is easily  
within walking distance, and through a decent neighborhood.  See here  
for a map:
