Getting Around Lincoln Heights

Around Lincoln Heights

The Nannie Helen Burroughs Avenue NE thoroughfare is the main commercial artery of the neighborhood. However, the commercial district is largely inactive. The remainder of the area contains mostly single-family and duplex homes. Lincoln Heights is not currently serviced by the Metro, making car ownership a necessity in the area.

There are no full-service supermarkets or sit-down restaurants in Lincoln Heights. Residents rely on mom-and-pop take-out restaurants, convenience stores, and a pop-up BBQ spot on Fridays for dining options.

Lincoln Heights has been the subject of the city's continued effort to revitalize previously neglected neighborhoods. The neighborhood has several parks and recreation areas, including the Kelly Miller Recreation Center, which has an outdoor pool next door to the neighborhood's middle school. Lederer Gardens is a community project intended to beautify the area while providing local green thumbs with a space to grow fresh produce.

Lincoln Heights doesn't have much of a nightlife so residents tend to venture to other neighborhoods for a night out. A short drive will land residents in the Kingman Park area, which has several establishments including craft beer bars, nightclubs, and cocktail lounges.

The green spaces make the area beautiful and parks are large and open. Next door, residents have the United States National Arboretum and Fort Circle Park. The stadium for D.C. United is also just a short drive away for catching a game or event. The trail that runs alongside the Anacostia River is perfect for a Sunday afternoon picnic or walking your dog.
