East of the River Attractions and Amenities
The riverside neighborhood of Anacostia and its surrounding East of the River communities including Fairlawn, Deanwood, Hillcrest, Hill East, and the Southeast Waterfront are known for their strong sense of community and rich history. The neighborhood of Anacostia was designated an Historic District in 1978, and features colorful blocks of turn-of-the-century Victorians, brick rowhouses, and a charming downtown commercial area. Anacostia and neighboring East of the River communities also boast some of the best views of the city, magnificent green spaces, and beautiful walking and biking paths along the riverfront.
Anacostia Park, one of the largest in the District, is operated by the National Park Service and offers space for a wide array of recreational activities including boating, fishing, sports fields, picnic pavilions, playgrounds and even roller skating in an historic pavilion. For indoor activities, the Anacostia Library has 22,000 square feet of spectacularly designed (and LEED Certified) book-filled space with excellent programming. The neighborhood also boasts the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site on Cedar Hill, where thousands of visitors come to tour the preserved home of the famous African American writer, leader, abolitionist and statesman. Other neighborhood attractions not to be missed include the wonderful Anacostia Community Museum, which is a part of the Smithsonian Institution, the Anacostia Arts Center, Anacostia Playhouse, and the iconic Big Chair sculpture. As for restaurants, the neighborhood is home to Uniontown Bar and Grill, Cheers @ the Big Chair Cafe, Capital Hill Crab Cakes, Turning Natural, and Art-drenaline Cafe, which some say has the best brunch deal in town. A new Busboys and Poets full-service eatery and events space is also expected to open in 2017.
Anacostia also awaits some major new developments including valuable retail spaces along its commercial corridors as well as the highly anticipated 11th Street Bridge Park.
With a convenient Metro station right off Good Hope Road and multiple stops for different bus lines, transportation is never an issue. Being located adjacent to Capitol Hill, the Washington Nationals Stadium, and the SW Waterfront development, Anacostia is a true hidden gem within the city.
