There are plenty of popular neighborhoods in Washington, D.C. worth venturing to. Many residents and tourists can list these neighborhoods typically on one or two hands: Chinatown, Downtown, U Street, Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights, and so on.
There are some areas in the city, though, with less than perfect reputations. Despite this, you will still find locals cheering on their neighborhoods. Maybe it’s the retail and restaurants worth searching for. Maybe the home values are a good deal. Maybe it’s the people worth giving a chance.
Whatever the reasons are, let Curbed know: Why should people give your neighborhood a chance? Why do you love it? And, of course, what is its current reputation?
