I moved here one year ago and love it. It's amazingly safe. I've had over 30 boxes delivered to my house and not one has been stolen! Every neighbor I've met has warmly welcomed me. The neighborhood children have fun on their bikes and boards and the older folks wave from their porches. The only down-side is that there's no grocery store for over a mile and a half from my house, but there are also no liquor stores or hang-out places nearby either. It's almost all families, older folks, newish homes, older apartment buildings, churches, libraries and schools. It's a hidden gem. A quiet place in Washington, DC. - Jim

I moved here in May, 2018 and love it. I was amazed at how safe and welcoming the neighborhood is. It's a hidden gem in Washington, DC. I'd totally recommend the neighborhood if you like a safe, quiet residential neighborhood in the City. It would be improved if there were a supermarket, Walmart, Target, Aldi's, etc. But thankfully there are are very few liquor stores or dollar stores so folks generally just live their lives quietly and peacefully.
Living in Marshall heights has been a good experience. There's not too much violence but when there's a party expect it to be loud and big. It's affoordable and near the train station, a shopping market and gas station. c
