They rank high on the list of DC’s hippest neighborhoods, but Logan Circle and Dupont Circle do have some differences. While the popular neighborhoods share some attributes, they are also distinctive in their offerings.

Logan Circle

Named after a traffic circle of the same name, the popular neighborhood of Logan Circle often attracts a mix of people, including singles, couples, artists and even nearby university students. Considered one of DC’s most diverse areas, Logan Circle is known for its trendy restaurants, hip stores and its thriving nightlife.

This is especially true along vibrant 14th Street. While most people know the walkable neighborhood for all of its offerings, it’s actually named in tribute to a Civil War general. You’ll see a

You may not think much about it as you drive over or under Georgetown’s “Buffalo Bridge”, but the bridge actually has a history all its own. Also called Dumbarton Bridge or the Q Street Bridge, the landmark first went up in the early 1900s.

At the time, locals were looking for a way to reduce traffic along M Street and make it easier to travel to some of DC’s other fast-growing neighborhoods and to downtown. The problem, of course, was Rock Creek.

One idea was to divert Rock Creek through a tunnel, but that would likely have cost millions of dollars. The much cheaper alternative was to build a bridge stretching across Rock Creek Park, thereby connecting up Dupont Circle to Georgetown.

Crews considered moving an existing

The Northumberland - 2039 new hampshire ave ne

For a century now the Northumberland has offered a sense of enduring luxury in Dupont Circle. First constructed in the early 1900s, the historic apartment building has served as home to countless prominent members of Washington society throughout the years, including judges, members of Congress, government officials and DC’s wealthy elite.

In 1920, the luxury apartment building turned into a co-op, making it one of the city’s oldest, co-op buildings today. Now featured in DC’s “Best Addresses” and on the National Registry of Historic Places, the seven-story building is easily recognized for its elegance and charm.

Many of the building’s original features are still evident today, as the building has retained its high standards for generations.

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.

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

You may think you know all about Dupont Circle, after all it is one of DC’s most vibrant neighborhoods. From its hip nightclubs and trendy boutiques to its brick rowhouses, this walkable neighborhood is certainly appealing. But there are a few things about Dupont Circle you may not know. More specifically, there are five little known facts, starting with what you’ll find underground.

Underground Tunnels

Long since abandoned, an old trolley station and tunnels still exist under Dupont Circle. It was the only such station built underground, but it hasn’t been used since the early 1960s. Since that time, it’s been used as a fallout shelter and a short-lived food court. Most recently, plans call for converting the underground space into artistic

While courtyards and nearby parks may first come to mind when you think of DC’s green space, some of its condo buildings are trending “green” in an entirely new way. A number of buildings are going green literally from the top down.

Last year, in fact, Green Roofs for Healthy Cities announced that DC had more green roofs installed the previous year, at least in terms of square footage, than anywhere else. In 2017 the District counted more than one-million square feet of green rooftops.

In total, other figures suggest DC already counts more than three-million square feet of green roofs. To gain “green roof status” a building would have to have a permanent green area on either the building’s roof or on a mid-building ledge or
