Forest Hills / Connecticut Avenue (July 16, 2019)
This evening we set out to explore the Forest Hills neighborhood. Forest Hills sits between Connecticut Avenue to the west and Rock Creek Park to the east. We began our walk by ambling down 36th street where you can easily imagine you are out in the middle of West Virginia rather than in Washington DC.
Once in Forest Hills, we found it to be a wonderfully eclectic neighborhood of single family homes from a variety of styles. Ranging from traditional ramblers and cottages . . .
To palace wannabes . . .
To modern giants.
We finished up the evening walking along Connecticut Avenue, passing by the stately apartment and condo buildings.
There is something strangely appealing about gas stations at twilight.
