  • Curious how folks feel about living in Glover Park. I’ve lived in Chinatown and Dupont now, and I love being in Dupont. My lease is coming up in a little, and I wouldn’t mind trying out another part of the city. I know Glover Park lacks for a metro station — is the transportation reliable around there? Do residents ever feel isolated from other parts of the city?

    • I’ve lived in GP for almost 2 years and I love it. While it does not have metro access, there are plenty of bus routes that are local to the area (N2/N4/37 on mass, 32/36 on Wisc, D1/D2 through the neighborhood) and it has a quiet feel to it. While I don’t feel isolated, its nice to be a bit further out, especially with Rock Creek Park so close and many other small local parks.

    • I think the bus connections are reliable on Wisconsin. Still, if I moved to GP and didn’t live right next to a bus stop, I would probably also buy a car. Not worth the hassle to always be dependent on the bus. Even in a Car2Go, the fare would rack up pretty quickly to get to U Street or CoHi to meet friends. The distance is a lot further than you imagine.
      I have a scooter, so that gives me a lot more flexibility.

    • It’s a PIA to get to Logan Circle/U Street via public transportation from GP, so I’d recommend getting a car.

      I think it really depends on how reliant you are on the Red Line currently – me personal experience is you can’t rely on the Red Line for anything and you are better off, at least in NW DC, to use the bus or to bike. I know several people in Glover Park and indeed they largely use bus or bike to get around. I think the benefit of GP is being close to GTown, Connecticut corridor, etc but have the benefit of living in a quieter part of town.

    • I lived in GP for years before buying in Brookland. I loved it there. It was green and kind of tucked away, but Wisconsin Ave and Whole Foods were just blocks away.

      The buses were fine but transitioning from a bus neighborhood to a metro neighborhood was probably much easier that it would be in the other direction.

      I worked at Dupont, so the D2 was convenient but I spent way too much of my life waiting for it. Metroing to Tenleytown and taking a 40’s bus down the hill was also an option.

      I walked a lot more – down Mass to work or to Dupont in general, down the back streets to Georgetown. I drove to VA lot more then – it’s way too annoying to get to Arlington from NE.

      I always felt safe walking around GP, even at night and alone. Lots of people have dogs, so it seemed that there was always someone else out walking around, too.

      More renters in GP than Brookland and more loud, party noise too. At least compared to my block in Brookland.

      I miss the greenery of Brookland. The park wraps around two sides of the neighborhood.

      I loved living in GP but it feels completely different than Dupont.

    • I’ve lived in Hill East, Bloomingdale, and Glover Park and GP is by far my favorite. Very community oriented, friendly people, easy to get around in, the park is literally in my back yard, and there are several close-by food options. I have a car, but transportation isn’t that hard. The Dupont bus is great, and Georgetown and Woodley/Adams Morgan are easy bike rides.

  • “Less than a mile to Cleveland Park metro” is a flat-out lie. It’s a mile and a half according to Google Maps.

  • If this were closer to the metro, yes, it would be a great deal. But I’d imagine you could find a studio in Glover Park for less than $1450. Otherwise, it seems like a nice space! It’s not obvious from the pictures, but are there any closets?

  • GP if definitely one of the most affordable rental markets this side of the river. that coupled with the fact that is a genuinely lovely neighborhood and very safe it is very enticing. but it has its drawbacks, it is a real hassle to get anywhere with the exception of Georgetown and perhaps Dupont. If you are someone who likes to explore or go out in different neighborhoods, I would say opt for somewherre more convenient.

  • GP is a great neighborhood. I lived in GP for 6 years without a car and never felt like transportation was difficult. The D2/D1 bus route is great, along with the Wisconsin Ave buses.

    You also have Capitol Bikeshare, Car2Go, Zipcar, Uber, etc to fill in when you might need it (i.e. very late night).
