Trinidad Reviews

I have been living the Trinidad neighborhood for about 2 an a half years now, and I can say that the neighborhood from what I’ve heard has become way better than before. The neighborhood used to be considered dangerous due to gangs and it was surrounded by so many impoverished people, that the neighborhood was not doing well. Now, because of gentrification, many middle-class populations are moving into D.C., causing homes to become more expensive and moving out the people who lived in the neighborhood but cannot afford to anymore. I have seen a lot of yoga studios and Trader Joe's being built for the advancement of the city but also for the new people that are moving into the black-populated neighborhoods. I think gentrification can be an advantage as well as a disadvantage where criminal activity plummets but the veterans of the neighborhoods are not able to afford a home in the neighborhood anymore because value has risen in efforts to attract middle-class populations.

Very family oriented neighborhood at one point, but as the gentrification started to kick in the violence around also increased.
Trinidad is a beautiful neighborhood, with a loving environment. I love the events, people, and just overall atmosphere.
