Tenleytown Reviews

Tenleytown is a great place to live! It is close to the metro making it an easy access to downtown DC! Tenleytown has a great selection of dining and useful library! I've never had any issues with Tenleytown besides getting my bike stolen earlier this fall. Around 2:30 Tenley can become a little crowded due to its proximity to a high school. The crowds don't bother me, and they have little impact on my commute to my job or internship! What I love most about Tenley is that it has everything you need, and great study spots! Overall, Tenleytown is a great place to live and has everything you need from a grocery store, library, phone repair shop, best buy, and a Chick-Fil-A!

Very nice neighborhood, good schools, but I would like to see more shops/locally owned restaurants rather than chains.
