Where You Live

Love where you live?  We want to hear about it!  After a year and a half and 32 neighborhoods, our Where We Live feature is nearing retirement.  But before it goes we want to make sure we’ve covered all the neighborhoods in the DC region that meet the following criteria:

  1. have both a commercial and residential component (what makes it worth a visit, and why is it a great place to live?),
  2. are within the Metro-served area of DC/MD/VA and/or inside the Beltway, and
  3. have someone that would like to talk to us about what it’s like to live there.

We’ve profiled 21 District neighborhoods, 7 Virginia neighborhoods, and 4 Maryland neighborhoods already, so check out what we’ve covered so far.  If your neighborhood hasn’t been covered and you want to talk to me about where you live, leave a comment here and I’ll get in touch with you.  Thanks!

She’s an urban planner who loves transit (why yes, that is her dressed as a Metro pylon for Halloween), cities, and all things DC. Email her at Shannon (at) WeLoveDC.com!

  1. Tenleytown? Or Van Ness. Or Upper Connecticut. Mount Pleasant? Kent/Palisades/Foxhall?

  2. Realize now I’m bad at the reading thing and 75% of those neighborhoods have been mentioned! But still Tenleytown/AU Park would be nice.

  3. How about NoMa? The residential is just starting to get going there, so I think it might be a little while before it meets your qualifications.

    There’s also Mount Vernon Triangle, which is newish as well, but there are commercial and residential developments there.

  5. Thanks for the great suggestions! I’m adding Brightwood, Cheverly, Tenleytown/AU Park/Van Ness, and Mount Vernon Triangle to the official Where We Live list (and I’ll be contacting you about your neighborhood). NoMa was included in the H Street feature.

    Any others that you’d like to see?
