What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Columbia Heights

We have a lot of diversity. It's close to a variety of places. There are many parks and playgrounds near.

The biggest thing I enjoy is that I don't know anyone and know one knows me so I don't have people in my business

The people and its close to the grocery stores and the highways. Great neighborhood..Amd the schools are very rewardingfor the kids.

It's in a historical district. It has pizza shops, chinese restaurants and bars as well as a brewery and a well know breakfast biscuit restaurant. My friends like to gather at the brewery and eat at the breakfast bisquit place.

My rent is real cheap, so is everyone elses. There isnt any stores up here but down the hill are two convienence stores side by side, and there is a pond for fishing within a mile.

The Police presence is very good. The streets are very well lit at night. They keep up the streets well.
