Friendship Heights Neighborhood - 4343 Harrison Street NW, Washington, DC

If living in a city means enjoying a walkable neighborhood, having retail and public transportation around the corner, then Friendship Heights meets all those criteria. But despite those attributes, the upper northwest DC neighborhood feels more like a suburb than a bustling urban center.

Friendship Heights is roughly bounded by River Road to the southwest, Willard Avenue and Western Avenue to the north, 41st Street and Reno Road to the east and Fessenden Street to the south. It sits right at the border of DC and Maryland, and many consider the neighborhood of Friendship Village across the border to be closely connected.
