Trinidad is a largely residential area in the Northeast quadrant of D.C. served by the NoMa-Galludet University Metro station on Metro’s Red Line, as well as a large number of bus lines. Trinidad has found itself as a popular area for young professionals looking to settle down. Vibrant murals, a dog park, and a recreation center all add to the appeal of Trinidad, in addition to community events and neighborhood blogs that keep everyone connected. The neighborhood lies between Union Market and the H Street corridor for easy access to restaurants and nightlife.
Growing in popularity at a fast rate, Trinidad is increasing rapidly in price, though residents in the area are working to keep things affordable. Typical residential homes range from Victorian row houses similar to those found in Capitol Hill, to the row houses built in a flat porch-fronted style. Older structures in the area are being torn down to be replaced by condos; another sign of burgeoning popularity and a contributor to the popularity of, and demand for, Trinidad real estate.
