Petworth: the in-city suburb
Petworth is geographically one of DC's largest neighborhoods. It was subdivided 100 years ago into rolling blocks of similar homes by developers who were answering the growing housing needs of the Federal City. Today, it is a vibrant and diverse neighborhood on the move. Dozens of new restaurants, bars and retail options have flooded its commercial ways including Georgia Avenue and Upshur Street. Its convenience to the rest of the City is a big draw, but its the quality of life and neighborly porch-culture that most residents cherish.
