Neighborhoods

Petworth / Park View

Distinctive urban row houses, pastoral parks, historic institutions and growing businesses front Georgia Avenue, the longest commercial corridor in DC.

Petworth and Park View are emerging as vital urban neighborhoods that provide all of the advantages of city living.

Upshur Street

Petworth’s quaint main street is coming into its own with a recent uptick in private investment including the opening of Slim’s Diner, Timber Pizza, and Twisted Horn in 2016.

Great Streets Retail Small Business Grants

Georgia Avenue is a designated Great Streets corridor. As funds become available small businesses can apply for grants to cover capital improvements and certain soft costs. In 2017, up to $50,000 was awarded per location.

Burgeoning Restaurant Scene

New eateries continue to join neighborhood staples Qualia Coffee, DC Reynolds, Looking Glass Lounge and Bill’s Seafood Kitchen. In the past few years new restaurants, including EatsPlace, The Pitch Tavern, Homestead, and Walter’s have opened in the community.
