Day 15

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.

36th Street NW

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.

  1. You guys should check out 30th place off of Elicott Street. This is where Lou used to live. Next door was J Edgar Hoover’s house and cady corner was LBJ’s house. Lou suspects they were in cahoots with the JFK assassination. We rented the house next door during the 80’s. At the end of the street, tucked way back in the woods, is the Peruvian Embassy.
