Otherwise known as Forest Hills.
This wooded, suburban Northwest DC neighborhood is full of diverse and unexpected architecture and apartments for rent. Adjacent to Rock Creek Park, one can easily escape and appreciate the wonders of nature. When in the neighborhood, one can explore the Hillwood Museum (where philanthropist and socialite Marjorie Merriweather Post once lived) and ogle over the Faberge egg collection. Van Ness is also home to the Calvert Woodley Wine Shop, with some of the best values and selections in the city.
