How safe is the Brentwood neighborhood in NE?
I am considering a six month sublet in the Brentwood neighborhood in NE. The rowhouse is located on Downing St. It’s a gorgeous home on the inside with hardwood floors and exposed brick in the sunroom. I would be renting out the basement room with private bathroom for $675 a month plus utilities. It seems like a great deal but I’m wondering how safe the neighborhood is. The lawns are well maintained and there was no trash in the street but quite a few teenagers loitering outside the evening I went to view the room. It’s a great deal and it’s only for six months but it’s not worth it if my safety will be in danger. I’m a single woman that relies on the metro so safety is definitely important. I really only know the NW part of DC so I appreciate any and all advice. Thanks!
