I try to meet them upon arrival but rarely see them after the initial meeting.
This lively city neighborhood began as an elite suburb on the high ground overlooking Washington City.

Neighborhoods: A look at Columbia Heights, Washington DC
WASHINGTON (AP) -- First-time visitors to Washington, D.C., have a long list of must-sees: monuments on the National Mall, Smithsonian museums, cherry blossoms in springtime, maybe a selfie in front of the White House. But repeat visitors, and even some on a first trip, want more than top attractions. A walk through the Columbia Heights neighborhood offers an interesting glimpse of history.
Many of the African-American residents were affiliated with Howard University. Other notable locals included diplomat Ralph Bunche, the first black Nobel Peace Prize winner, and Mexican writer Carlos Fuentes. J.W. Marriott and his wife opened an A&W root beer franchise on 14th street in 1927, before creating the Marriott hotel chain.
An award-winning bakery, Sticky Fingers Sweets & Eats (1370 Park Road, NW) sells vegan cupcakes and other goodies, while a number of eateries serve Latin American food from pupusas to tamales, including El Pollo Sabroso (1434 Park Road, NW), El Rinconcito Cafe II (1326 Park Road, NW) and Taqueria Distrito Federal (3463 14th St., NW).
Other foodie faves include Pho 14 (1436 Park Road, NW, Vietnamese) and Red Rocks (1036 Park Road, NW, pizza). A burgeoning restaurant and bar strip around 11th Street includes Wonderland Ballroom (1101 Kenyon St., NW), a bar that opened years before the area gentrified, and Maple (3418 11th St., NW), an excellent, newer pasta place known for lamb ragu. In January, President Barack Obama visited a diner called The Coupe (3415 11th St., NW).
The Museum of Unnatural History (3233 14th St., NW) is a hipster curiosity shop. Among its displays: a skeleton of a fictional creature and a roulette wheel that answers scientific questions...Best-sellers in the museum store include Unicorn Tears, Replacement Eyes... But the tiny, free funhouse has a serious mission: A nonprofit called 826DC offers after-school programs and tutoring focused on creative writing.
A free, illustrated walking guide to Columbia Heights is available online from Cultural Tourism DC, or pick up a printed version at local stores. Nineteen poster-sized signs mark noteworthy spots around the neighborhood like All Souls Church (1500 Harvard St., NW), where activist Angela Davis spoke in 1974, and the Tivoli Theatre (3333 14th St., NW), a 1920s restored historic landmark.
The apartment is located 2 1/2 blocks form the Columbia Heights metro (yellow/green line).
You can actually take the yellow line directly from Washington Reagan Airport to the Columbia Heights Metro.
I don't allow pets and the there is no smoking in the apartment.

Gracious and Fun loving. I'm a big foodie and can point you to all the great restaurants. Also, I work on Capitol Hill and can direct you to the must see tourist locales.
