Trinidad is a primarily residential neighborhood located in the Northeast quadrant of Washington DC. Trinidad draws its name from a former owner of land in the neighborhood who lived on the Caribbean Island of Trinidad and planned on moving here but passed away before accomplishing this. The architecture of Trinidad is dominated by circa 1920s craftsman-style row houses. Trinidad remains one of a very few District neighborhoods where a single family home is in the reach of a first-time buyer.
The boundaries of Trinidad are Mt. Olivet Road to the north, West Virginia Avenue to the west, Florida Avenue to the South and Bladensburg Road to the east. Neighborhoods bordering Trinidad include the H Street Corridor to the south, Carver Langston to the east, Ivy City to the north and Gallaudet College to the west.
The New York Avenue Metro Stop serves the Trinidad neighborhood.
