"Steadily transforming from edgy to inviting, Columbia Heights’ renaissance is due in part to a recent influx of big box retailers and mainstream entertainment options. These suburban conveniences convivially blend with Columbia Heights’ urban sensibilities—ethnic eateries, one-of-a-kind dive bars, and family-run bakeries populate its mural-covered side streets. It’s still advised to practice caution when enjoying the neighborhood by night, as Columbia Heights has yet to fully shed its gritty reputation."
The Petworth neighborhood is one with a strong sense of community. Petworth has what is known as a porch culture where residents stroll down streets and shout hello to their neighbors. It’s a community where residents support one another whether it’s borrowing sugar from your next-door neighbor or attending the free Petworth Jazz Project or the Celebrate Petworth Festival an event where it’s difficult to tell if the residents are neighbors or family.
Petworth Community Market is a popular social hub. Each Saturday from May to November, residents gather to support local farmers and artisans while stocking up on weekly groceries. Live music is played while neighbors visit, eat, and shop.
Just as recently as a decade ago it was uncommon to see a mother pushing a stroller. However, Petworth now is what can be considered a stroller city. The number of young professionals and families moving to Petworth has exceedingly increased over the past few years. Even more common now is the stroller-dog combination.
Another delightful feature of Petworth is what is referred to as “the block.” The block, located on Upshur Street between 8th Street SW and 9th Street NW, is a lively section of the neighborhood that includes eccentric furniture shops and vintage clothing boutiques along with Latin and Japanese inspired restaurants.
The large variety of ethnic restaurants in the neighborhood is unsurpassed. French, Ethiopian, Scandanavian, Korean, Italian, Indian, and numerous other cultures are represented in eateries throughout Petworth. Along with the diverse dining options, the diversity in residents comes in at the number three spot for the most diverse DC neighborhoods.
