Wondering about the Lamond-Riggs neighborhood:

“Lamond-Riggs neighborhood? (20012, Near Lamond Rec. Center)
We are considering a move and trying to learn more about the Lamond-Riggs neighborhood. We have done a bit on walking around in the area & reading about the area. But, are not as familiar with it as Takoma DC. Anyone live in or spend a good amount of time in neighborhood specifically near the Lamond Recreation Center/ near Kansan & Eastern Ave (20012)?

Things we are viewing as Pros: There seem to be a number of families staying in the area for a long time. The lots & homes seem to be reasonable size, a number of similar early 1950′s brick detached single family houses. While many of the homes are still only the original 2 bed/1 bath most have basements, off-street parking & space to for additions. Most of the homes/yards look well maintained.
The crime reports look pretty good around the area. It is a fairly easy walk up to the Takoma metro seems to be good lighting & safe walking along Eastern Ave during both night & day times. Fort Totten Metro/ development & Walter Reed development is just a little over a mile away. There also seem to be a number of buses along Eastern Ave.
Of course having the Lamond Recreation Center is a nice perk for kids (and adults). Close to the Takoma DC/Takoma Park, MD amenities without paying higher Takoma Park, MD housing/tax prices. There also looks to be a good amount of business/shopping and such along New Hampshire Ave/MD.

Wondering about:
Continued growth & development in the area & surrounding areas. If the neighborhood is friendly & has active community groups.. are there neighborhood events? What folks think of the neighborhood public & private schools? If the area would be reasonably welcoming to a LGBT family? If those that live in the area feel reasonably safe walking at night to & from metros/buses/shops and just walking dogs. How is the Lamond Rec Center?

Thanks for in advance for constructive & 1st hand information.”
