You’re hard-pressed to find a block in this fast-changing Northeast DC neighborhood–where the median price rose by about 7 percent last year–without a house (or three) undergoing a gut-renovation. You’ll spot boarded-up windows next door to for-sale signs in fresh sod. Though much of the city remembers Trinidad for the military-style checkpoints set up by police during the violent summer of 2008, it has moved on–dramatically. Trinidad is now primely positioned: a five-minute walk from the restaurant and bar scene along Northeast’s H Street corridor, a ten-minute stroll from Union Market, and less than a 20-minute walk from NoMa (and the Red Line). While those help its real-estate values, the neighborhood itself has a lot going for it on its own. You’ll find 1920s rowhouses on narrow streets and a diverse community of longtime African-American residents, young families and couples of varying backgrounds (gay, straight, black, white), and students from Gallaudet University, which sits along Trinidad’s western edge. The Whole Foods opening a half mile away is a draw for many house hunters, as is the prospect of owning a four-bedroom, fully renovated rowhouse for $650,000 (or a fixer for less than $450,000). But they’re also attracted to something less tangible: the feeling that Trinidad–unlike, say, the NoMa apartments they might be leaving behind–is a place you move to when you’re ready to call the District home.
