  • There are far worse apts in GP, in far worse buildings, in parts of GP much farther away from Wisc, that are far more expensive than this one.

  • palisades

    *Drools*. I love this place.

  • It looks like a nice place, but honest question: why does anyone choose to live in Glover Park? It seems inconvienent to everything except being in Glover Park. I guess it is kind of close to American and Georgetown Universities, but otherwise?

    • palisades

      Beautiful area. SAFE. You’re not wrong though. Georgetown and everything west of it is pretty secluded. (which I kind of like)

    • I lived there when I first moved to DC because it’s very clearly safe and cheap when you don’t know the city. Once you get used to taking the bus, it’s really not that bad. This is a great price for this place. It’s comparable to living in Arlington, except Arlington has the metro, whereas Glover has a more neighborhoody/established feel… so it’s just a question of which you value more.

    • Interesting. I guess that all makes sense. Arlington is NOT my cup of tea, nor would I think Glover Park would be, but to each their own. I prefer a little excitement in my surroundings, which others might perceive as danger, haha.

    • Let’s just say there’s a street called “Whitehaven” in this neighborhood. GP is lovely and it does feel safe and friendly. But it’s also full of rich, white, recent college graduates from large southern universities. If you are in a Nantucket red and boats shoes kinda mood, head on over to GP!

      • I am a resident of Glover Park. You are so wrong in your characterization of the neighborhood! The neighborhood is filled with young families like ours. It has one of the best public elementary schools in the city (Stoddert), yet is walkable to all kinds of great amenities, including an amazing playground and recreation center (Guy Mason) . In addition to Whole Foods, there are lots of great non-chain restaurants that we love here (Surfside, Rocklands, Sprig and Sprout, Town Hall, Arcuri, Old Europe). Pearson’s is one of the city’s best wine and liquor stores.

        We also enjoy hiking through Glover Archbold Park where you can feel true urban wilderness. All this in a neighborhood where we can be in Dupont Circle in 5-10 minutes (straight shot down Mass Ave). Or cut across Calvert to Woodley Park and Admo also in a matter of minutes. Georgetown is walking distance and we walk to the public pool in Volta Park in the summer.

        I can understand the lifestyle is not for everyone – not sure it would be my first choice if I were a recent college grad looking for excitement – but I really don’t get the hate and the notion that it is far from “everything”.

      • Some people like to be right next to whatever trendy bar or restaurant happens to be cool this week so they can go out till 3am and walk home.

        Some people like quiet neighbors and to be next to woods and still have a bus that gets you downtown in 30 minutes stop right outside their door.

    • The poster who lives in Glover Park, below (or above), nails it, but I’ll add some more.

      I do not live in Glover Park. I have never lived there. But it is very well-located for things that matter once you have kids:

      1. Outdoors. Rock Creek Park is nice, but I think Glover-Archbold is a nicer outdoor space. It has a nice series of trails that all connect, including to Battery Kemble Park. Both places are awesome for wandering outdoors and letting your dog run free.
      2. Schools. Stoddert is a great elementary school. While Hardy is not Deal, it is clearly the second-best middle school in DC. As such, it is one of the few (perhaps two) MS in the entire city in which you can send your child without any real concerns. It feeds to Wilson High School. For people with children, the ability to skip the charter roulette is wonderful.
      3. Self-contained community. This is a dying feeling, but because the neighborhood is tucked away in a pocket of the city, the only people visiting/driving through live there.
      4. Safety. There is no comparison between GP and similar neighborhoods and areas east of the park. (Yes, I understand there’s a tradeoff between vibrancy and safety. I’m just saying that if you value safety highly, it scores very well on this tradeoff.)
      5. Easy trip to other (kid-friendly) things. Glen Echo. Bethesda Row (for the several children’s playhouses).
