Michele Buckman has put together some videos discussing the current DC market and what the future may hold for the real estate market in the Washington DC area.
Located in the northeast quadrant of Washington, DC, Trinidad is a primarily residential area that is currently experiencing a significant revitalization after years of neglect. Many of Trinidad's row houses are built in the flat porch-fronted Craftsman style. Houses that were once boarded up and abandoned are now undergoing renovation and being sold to families. New restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and art galleries are popping up left and right along Trinidad's tree-lined streets and especially along the H Street Corridor.
The community's revitalization is a welcome rebirth for this conveniently-located neighborhood. Trinidad is bounded to the north by Mt. Olivet Road, to the east by Bladensburg Road, to the south by Florida Avenue, and to the west by West Virginia Avenue. The Capitol building, Union Station, and RFK Stadium are all within two miles of Trinidad, while many of the Smithsonian museums, the Verizon Center, and the Washington Convention Center are located within three miles of the neighborhood. Capitol Hill, Gallery Place/Chinatown, and the U Street Corridor neighborhoods are all within a short distance of Trinidad.
To the west of Trinidad is the world-famous Gallaudet University, giving part of the neighborhood a young. lively university feel. Trinidad is also located less than a mile away from the entrance to the National Arboretum, a beautiful greenspace open free to the public. The Arboretum's many gardens walking and biking trails, as well as its peaceful vistas, offer a convenient respite from Washington DC city life. Trinidad is also within walking distance of the Capital City Market, or Florida Market, a historic wholesale food district specializing in ethnic cuisine. What's more, much of Trinidad is located within walking distance of the New York Avenue-Florida Avenue-Gallaudet University Metro station in the Red Line.
