Ivy City Reviews

3 reviews
Ivy City is not that big of a neighborhood, but overall, I have had a very pleasant experience living here. The apartment I live in, the Hecht, is a bit far from the nearest metro station, but we have a shuttle service running during the weekdays. We are very close to the grocery store, and I always feel very safe, since there are police officers around almost all the time. The homeless people can make walking around very uncomfortable, but otherwise, everything here is pretty much fine.
