If you don’t want to have to depend on a car to get around, DC is a great place to live. While some neighborhoods rely on public transportation, other neighborhoods are extremely walkable.

DC as a whole ranks extremely well for its walkability. In fact, DC’s WalkScore ranking is number seven in terms of the most walkable large cities in the nation.

In recent years, Redfin put DC in 4th place when it comes to its list of ‘The Best Cities for Living Without a Car’. Some neighborhoods also rank particularly high all on their own in terms of walkability.

Tucked away within the Adams Morgan neighborhood emerges a delightful urban neighborhood called Reed-Cooke. While small in size, the neighborhood of Reed-Cooke is rich in terms of diversity.

Found between 16th and 18th streets, between U Street and Columbia Road, Reed-Cooke gains its namesake from two schools; H.D. Cooke Elementary and Marie Reed Elementary. Those locations were themselves named after a former community leader and the District’s first governor.

chinese embassy condos - 2001 19th st nw

For those looking for a bit more history in their DC-area home, there are churches, schools and even embassies that have been remade into multi-residential space. One such example is the Chinese Embassy.

A number of DC neighborhoods have had eyebrow raising names over the years. It’s likely older residents may recall such names as Swampoodle and Civic Betterment.

It’s some of the newer neighborhood names, however, that have been raising eyebrows for different reasons. It’s not particularly because of the uniqueness of the names, but sometimes it’s that they’re getting names from developers eager to help create the next trendy area.

Take for example the neighborhood of North End Shaw. A developer first started using the name about five years ago as a marketing term to distinguish the development and offer some sense of its location in the DC area.

Flash forward a few years and North End Shaw now boasts several new apartment

The Matrix - 1529 14th St NW DC

They are some of DC’s coolest condo buildings today, but all share a unique history. Many of them use used to be auto showrooms.

While the neighborhood had its ups and downs over the years, many of those old properties have more recently been transformed into exciting residential properties. They may retain some of the original architecture, but the interiors are refreshingly modern.

In particular, The Matrix on 14th Street was once home to a car dealership. These days you won’t find parked vehicles for sale, but rather loft-style condos topping retail space.
