Local Reviews

i like that there are a lot of people my age so i fit into the area well. there are a lot of restaurants, both fast food and nicer, which is nice because i love food .

I seldom accompany my family when I go to work. I usually go to Starbucks nearby with my family on Saturdays and Sundays. I feel that Starbucks is quiet and I can talk with my family members about their innermost feelings

I love the diversity and being able to walk to restaurants. I like being close to metro. My favorite restaurant is Chloe.

About

Washington, DC

Overview of Navy Yard

The Washington Navy Yard is the repurposed base of the United States Navy. After World War II, the Navy Yard was moved to another location. The vacant Navy Yard in Washington, D.C. became an empty lot in the District. The lot was altered over the years, and the Navy Yard became a neighborhood enclave like many other places in the city. Anyone who moves to the Navy Yard area gets to live among history, and they are still very close to the nation's Capital building.

Living in Navy Yard

The rental market in the Washington Navy Yard is rather expensive, but these prices pay for apartments in one of the most beautiful parts of the district.
