McCollough Terrace is a low-income community located just yards away from the Washington Convention Center, where today and tomorrow, nearly two-dozen foreign heads of state will gather.
Like many of her neighbors at McCollough Terrace, Sherelle Courtney is indifferent.
"I have no choice," says Courtney. "If that's what they got to do, they got to do it. Ain't nothing I can really do about it."
Her feelings are shared by Antwaan, a McCollough Terrace resident who wouldn't give out his last name. He says the summit is forcing him to change his commute.
"I got to. I got to work, don't I?" he says. "I'm going to walk to work."
In the end, Antwaan says, some good might actually come of this.
"I'm just going to get up a little earlier for a couple days," he says. "I really need the exercise, anyway. But, you know, it is what it is."
During the two-day summit, McCollough Terrace residents will have their bags and their pockets searched - just to enter their homes.
