One of the District’s best up-and-coming neighborhoods, Anacostia is enjoying hefty economic investment and sustained growth. Keep your eyes on this neighborhood as it shoots to the top of DC trendy living spots. Three new developments are coming into the area: Barry Farm, Anacostia Gateway, and Reunion Square, opening up the Anacostia Metro Station for more ridership as well as invigorating the downtown with shops and street life. Residential plans for St. Elizabeth’s East, Maple View Flats, and Poplar Point are all coming-along nicely, too.
The neighborhood where Frederick Douglass lived has much to offer from historical and cultural perspectives. Uniontown Bar & Grille is a delicious sit-down option on the main strip. Recent additions include a juice bar and arts center. Anacostia is easily accessible to the rest of DC through public transportation and driving. Visit this rising neighborhood for beautiful views of the Anacostia river, after which it was named, and to enjoy the welcoming, small-town feel.
