Getting Around 16th Street Heights
Around 16th Street Heights
In comparison to other areas in the city, it is more difficult to find one- to two-bedroom housing arrangements in this neighborhood. Most of the homes have three or more bedrooms, and most of the homes here are single-family. These houses offer a great deal, because in comparison to other places in D.C., the larger homes here cost less. Several of the apartment buildings have been converted into condos, which are rare to find but cost less than elsewhere as well. Unlike the rest of D.C., 16th Street Heights is not dominated by row homes.
Like many suburban communities, this neighborhood doesn't offer a wide variety of restaurants. There are a handful of take-out restaurants, cafes, and small grocery stores, but residents head over to neighboring communities for large shopping runs and trendy restaurants.
16th Street Heights boasts a lot of diversity, with residents of different ethnicities and socioeconomic statuses. Many of the locals are longtime residents but there has been an increase of small families with young children recently. Young professionals and college students make up a small part of the population. Residents are known to be friendlier and more welcoming than those of downtown D.C., much like suburban towns. If you're looking for religion, you'll probably find it in one of the 45+ houses of worship across many denominations.
Keep an eye on what the 16th Street Heights Civic Association has planned, they often organize picnics, summertime movie nights, and ice cream socials. Try out the local Caribbean cuisine at local hotspots such as Sandovan's and Crown Bakery or go for some Ethiopian food at Hiwot.
Explore the neighborhood's stunning sections of Rock Creek Park or walk over to one of the recreation parks for some Sunday morning exercise. Then, stop by one of the small, local cafes (like Aboil Cafe or Highlands) for breakfast and coffee before grabbing a bus to explore more of D.C.
