Washington, DC's *wonderful* Northwest neighborhoods (102 photos)

I was in Washington, DC this week for just under 58 hours. Fortunately I had the afternoon free on Wednesday to get out & see for myself what makes Northwest DC such a vibrant & pleasant place to live & play. While I was in DC, I actually stayed with a friend who lives just 2 blocks from Dupont Circle (on Massachusetts Avenue). The photo tour starts out in & around Dupont Circle, then proceeds up 18th St NW through Adams Morgan, then westward across the Calvert Street bridge into Woodley Park, then up Connecticut Avenue to Cleveland Park. From that point, I took the Metro up to Friendship Heights/Chevy Chase, MD before returning to Dupont Circle. From there, I headed east along P St NW to Logan Circle, then turned southwest down Rhode Island Ave to Scott Circle, and finally wrapped things up by heading northwest along Massachusetts Avenue back to my friend's apartment. I most definitely liked all of the areas I visited, but for me none of the neighborhoods quite measured up to Dupont Circle. It's basically just about anything & everything I could want in an urban neighborhood. Loved it, loved it, loved it. So anyway, here are my photos.















































































Beautiful building:
































I *adored* this building... for me, the architecture/design of it was so attractive!

I've said it before, but DC has to be the pound-for-pound, most architecturally significant metro out there.

Nice hood. Looks a lot like Lincoln Park, but with more rows. Thanks for the shots.

Nice pictures. That fountain in DuPont Circle is nice. Some trivia: did you know that the original statue in DuPont Circle, of Admiral Samuel DuPont (which gave the circle its name), is now located in Wilmington? I thought of that when I saw the inscription on the fountain's base about the originaly statue.

I was born in DC but grew up in the Maryland suburbs and at one time lived in Adam's Morgan back in the early 90's (I now live in NYC). Wow....these pics bring back alot of memories... These neighborhoods seem small now but in a nice and "clean" way! There's no doubt that I think NW DC is where anyone thinking of living in DC should consider first. It's city enough to offer almost everything (without the need of a car) but also small enough not to overwhelm you like larger citites like NYC or LA!
