Today on the market: Grand house in 16th Street Heights

    Nice house, but it's on GA Ave and who needs that traffic?

    And carefully photographed so you don't realize it's semi-detached. But the ad does say "Suburban living meets the metropolitan lifestyle." so that's something.

    Upper NW (particularly the swatch between Nebraska Ave. and Rock Creek Park) has all the feel of a subdivision. I don't see much happening there in terms of transit, and the residents will want to keep it that way. The area between Petworth and Brightwood has better potential.

    meant Nevada Ave.

    There is transit in that area of Ward 4. Bus lines in the neighborhood and on Military Road. Just too much car-centricity. People should be working on increasing the level of service.
