NFT Washington DC Walter Reed

Walter Reed

Until 2011, when the Walter Reed Army Medical Center was consolidated with nearby Bethesda Naval Medical Center, the neighborhood catered to military families and veterans using its services. The grounds are the neighborhood's diamond in the rough, and it remains to be seen how the 100-plus acre site will be redeveloped.

16th Street, the major road cutting through this neighborhood is an ideal route for travelers heading downtown from the Beltway. But try to keep the radio volume low. The families who live here like to keep things nice and quiet. Looking for action? Head east to Georgia Avenue for booze, foodstuffs, and loiterers.
