"A Back Road Gateway to D.C. from Maryland"
Sargent Road NE is one of the roads that starts in the state of Maryland and keeps going into Washington, D.C. The border is at Eastern Avenue, which is the dividing line, but there really isn't any major line of demarcation to indicate that you have crossed into the nation's capital. One side of the road looks the same as the other. Sargent Road NE has average, middle class homes. Some are single family, some are duplex homes (two-family). There is an occasional small apartment building, and there is even a block that has, what it seems, two very large and out of place homes that seem to have been plunked there without a lot of planning. Shopping is close by and accessible, although you do have to drive about 15 minutes to get to a large shopping center or mall. The area is relatively safe and clean. A very average street, but it does have more traffic than most people would want because of its access to Maryland.
