"Convenient Residential Street near University"
45th Street, NW is a residential street that is near American University. It is convenient to the University and also to rest of the city. You can work to the Tenley Metro Station. It is also close to Friendship Heights where there is a mall and a lot of shopping and restaurants. The houses tend to be small, older brick houses with small yards. There are alleys behind many of them. It's one of the safe areas of DC. I lived there when I was a student and enjoyed the convenience. It is one of the safer areas of the city but you may have to interact with a lot of college students living in off campus houses.
