"Close to everything"

Bethesda used to be a town where it was safe to walk alone at night. Now it is a city, complete with highrises, office buildings and the subway. It is no longer quiet and safe as it used to be, but overall seems safer than some other parts of the Washington Metro area. The part of this street closest to East West Highway and Bethesda-Chevy Chase high school is by far the noisiest and most 'hectic' given the proximity of these entities, but as you go down the street towards Chase Avenue it becomes much more quiet.

Neighbors pretty much keep to themselves but can be counted on most of the time if need be. The proximity to downtown and the metro is very good and convenient. Families (especially those with younger children) would do better living in the more quiet areas closer to the elementary and middle schools, as the ones for this immediate area were closed long ago.
