"A Clean, Middle Class Neighborhood"
Hamlin Street NE is a clean, middle to upper class neighborhood, with some beautiful, but modest homes that have a little bit of yard, both in the front and back. There are also trees in many areas, which is nice. Hamlin Street is in the northeast corridor of Washington, DC, and as many streets in the nation's capital, it is dissected by railroad tracks. The western part of Hamlin Street dumps into Trinity College, while the eastern part of it traverses eastward toward Route 1, which is a major north/south route through Washington, D.C. This street could be mistaken for a street in the Midwest, because the homes are not typical of the homes you see on most Washington D.C. streets. Most of the residents on this street are young to middle-age families, with some retirees, who have been living there for a long time. Many currently work or have worked at Trinity College. Everyone takes pride in their homes, so it is a very well maintained street. Lots of people have dogs! Shopping is not really walking distance, but it is close enough if you have a car. Overall, a good place to live in Washington, D.C.
