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.

For example, Dupont Circle is a great place to get around by walking. Most residents have an easy stroll to the closest Metro station, plus the neighborhood also includes a number of restaurants

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 it may be hard to imagine these days, the neighborhood of Logan Circle once gained the moniker of “Automobile Row”, due to the many garages and showrooms that spanned 14th Street.

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.

It may be home to upscale townhomes today, but Beekman Place traces its history to an even more prestigious setting. In fact, a look inside this gated property will lead you to the origins of an actual castle.

The couple built it there in hopes of making the location into DC’s center of society. With incredible views overlooking the entire area, the couple

Controversy is brewing in Adams Morgan where opponents of a planned luxury condo building continue to battle developers over the property. Once the site of an old theatre that succumbed to one of the most tragic days in neighborhood history the SunTrust Plaza has for some time primarily been used and known as the site of public concerts and farmer’s markets.

The location is privately owned, though, and much to the dismay of some area residents the developer is attempting to turn the land and the existing bank at Columbia Road and 18th into a brand new mixed-use building. Original plans called for the construction of dozens of condo units, retail space plus a small plaza, eventually caving somewhat to neighborhood demands with a new design that
