This neighborhood has a lot of great stuff! Harrar Coffee is incredible, and you are also just a couple of blocks from the restaurants by Howard, like Mama Chuys (delicious). Bruce Munroe Park is a cute little park with an active community garden, tennis courts, basketbakll courts, and a playground. You are a short walk from the 11th Street restaurant scene (Meridian Pint, Redrocks, the Coupe, Maple, KBC, Room 11, El Chucho, and Wonderland), and you’re really close to the new restaurants opening at Sherman and Harvard and Sherman and Girard. The 70’s bus line takes you right down to Chinatown with express bus options, and you can walk to Columba Heights Metro. There is a CaBi station at the park too, and easy access to the 11th Street bike lanes.
There is some crime in the neioghborhood, though as gotryit noted, it’s pretty much the same amount of crime as you would have in other nearby neighborhoods. Giant is your closest grocery for now, so that’s a downer. There is a good amount of ambulance traffic around there because of the hospital center, but if your bedroom is not facing Georgia, you should be fine.
Otherwise, it’s a great little neighborhood, and the community on that block of Columbia, Hobart, and Harvard is pretty active.
