"Great neighborhood but most heavily traveled road in the neighborhood"
Commonwealth runs through the entire Kings Park West neighborhoo - it is the a suburban/side street but is the major artery through the neighborhood for buses. It is close to all schools - Elementary, Middle, High and even George Mason University. It is an especially great area for families with kids. While it is close to a college campus the few college hangouts are on the far side of campus. Commuting downtown can be slow due to traffic on Braddock road - the main artery out of this part of town. There is a neighborhood pool (membership fees) and a very active neighborhood association.
