    Your info is outta date, brah. Bardo is now next to the ballpark and the Trinidad location is permanently closed! Also, no mention of the brewery and multiple distilleries right next door? And all the new bars?

    • Anon H St

      RIP (original) Bardo, But yeah, there are a lot of good spots around there that didn’t get a mention. I would probably go to the Ivy City Smokehouse Tavern every day if I lived in Ivy City. Republic Restoratives is great too.

  • Anonynon

    I have not once heard someone say Ivy City is ‘hip’, usually more like ‘where is that’ or ‘isn’t there a few distilleries there?’

  • Effie

    “great access to all points in the city” … No, no, no.

    • Anonynon

      hahah yeah I thought about living there and then quickly realized how poorly connected this part of town is. Those bus lines are not reliable forms of transportation for commuting and the walkability is very questionable

      • anon

        I walk around there all the time. New York Ave. needs some work (and that work is being planned actively), but getting from Ivy City to Union Market, NoMa, and points downtown isn’t that bad. The D4 bus line is plenty useful (D8 is a little circuitous but it can work for short trips).

        • TrinidadAnon

          The D4 is indeed an excellent way to get downtown. It works great in the mornings, but crosstown traffic means that it can be spotty getting home at night.

    • Michael Pierce

      It’s probably great if you’re able to use a car to get everywhere you need to go, but as someone who just started working in Logan Circle where there is ZERO parking available, I wouldn’t even think of moving to Ivy City. Very cool stuff happening there for sure, though.

      • anon

        False. You could take the E2 to Fort Totten and the green or yellow lines down to U St. You could take the D4 to 14th St. and a 50-series bus north. And you could easily take an Uber if you were in a rush.
        Obviously, that’s all a lot worse than walking to work, but it beats sitting in traffic. And the claim that Ivy City isn’t transitable at all is simply false.

  • anon

    This is a good deal.

  • Anonymous

    $1250 for a full 1 bedroom 1 bath is about as good a deal you can find in DC, especially if you like distilleries and breweries you can walk to.

  • Reality

    Not at all — this is overpriced for that area. Believe me, you can get an entire rowhouse for not much more.

    • MadMax

      Right around the corner at Hecht there are 1BR/1BA for $2245. You can find just about any price point in any neighborhood if you look hard enough, that doesn’t mean things on the upper and lower spectrum are “deals”, or that things in the middle are not. I think most people don’t know how to value Ivy City yet, because it’s changing so rapidly.
