Is Mt. Vernon Right for You?
Mt. Vernon Neighborhood: Mount Vernon Square is a rapidly revitalizing urban neighborhood in central DC. The National Mall and the Smithsonian museums are about a mile walk away. The green and yellow lines offer a direct metro trip to Nationals Park. Mount Vernon is home to the Historical Society, located in the historic Carnegie Library. This neighborhood is home to DC’s Convention Center. This neighborhood has a diverse mix of residents from young professionals to longtime DC residents. The area is a hotbed of construction as new commercial ventures and apartment buildings go up daily. However, there is still a cluster of low-income housing blocks in Mount Vernon so caution, especially at night, is advised.
