Day 1

American University Park (June 15, 2019)

Today we set out on our first day of walking every street in Ward 3 of Washington, DC. We started off close to our home in Friendship Heights, by exploring the nearby American University Park (AU Park) neighborhood. AU Park consists mainly of single family homes on quiet tree lined streets. The majority of the houses were built in the early and mid-1900s. Because they are, for the most part, moderately sized and sit close together, there is a nice family and community atmosphere.

A typical AU Park house. Many are Tudor style. This one has the extra benefit of solar panels.
Running parallel to the streets and behind the houses are alleys that at times give the area a decidedly rural feel.
The magnolia trees are in blossom, lending their beautiful scent to residents and passersby
