For some it is hard to believe that there is a neighborhood with green lawns, beautiful houses, and quiet streets virtually devoid of traffic just to the north of Columbia Heights and Mount Pleasant. And if you’ve never heard of Crestwood, you’re not alone. The relatively peaceful, upscale residential area that sits between 16th Street and Rock Creek Park is located near some of the city’s more popular neighborhoods, but is simultaneously isolated. The area that now makes up most of Crestwood was originally a large 300-acre estate purchased by a single owner in 1720. It wasn’t until the early 20th century that the area started seeing single-family home development. Located just north of Mount Pleasant, it lies on a pocket of land west of 16th Street and surrounded on three sides by Rock Creek Park.


Crestwood is distinctly quieter than neighborhoods just a few blocks away, and there’s almost no through traffic. Many of the homes sit on large plots of land that haven’t been subdivided for new construction, and just about every lawn is green and dotted with flowering bushes. Several decades ago, Crestwood was one of DC’s pre-eminent neighborhoods for successful African Americans. But as earlier residents have grown older and passed away, the community has become more diverse. Crestwood is an entirely residential neighborhood, but none of the residents that UrbanTurf spoke with complained about that. For drivers, the neighborhood has ample parking and is near several major arteries running north and south through the city, including 16th Street, Beach Drive, and Connecticut Avenue. Crestwood’s location and lack of commercial activity, along with its many large leafy lots and the park at its fringe, give it a serene feel, even though it sits next to a bustling urban environment. However, a low turnover rate among homeowners means that getting in can be tricky.
