Trinidad

Welcome to Trinidad

A diverse, fast-changing community with a unique identity.
 
Trinidad is in northeastern Washington, D.C. Residents enjoy walking to the nearby retail, grocery, and commercial shops, especially in NoMa and the artsy H Street corridor. The neighborhood’s central location and street parking make it easy to get around the area. The active Trinidad Neighborhood Association helps maintain the community’s quality of life. This includes organizing tours, brunches, local cleanups, and outings.
 
Because the homes in Trinidad are well-maintained, they sell quickly. Many are restored Victorian-style homes or craftsman-style rowhouses, while other older homes have been converted into condominiums. More
luxury homes are under construction as well. Popular architects include PARADIGM Office, Shalom Baranes Associates, and Noel Design Build Group.
 
What to Love 
  • Vibrant, well-maintained, on-the-move neighborhood
  • Progressive, hip, artistic area
  • Dynamic, bustling, walkable community

Local Lifestyle 

There is a sense of community in Trinidad, and it is often referred to as a “big little town.” Residents lounge on their spacious front porches and enjoy quiet streets with no commercial traffic. It attracts students and young families from the nearby Gallaudet University and has a large population of residents who have lived here for generations. 
 

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping 

Residents shop and socialize with friends and neighbors at the nonprofit FRESHFARM. The organization’s mission is to improve resilience, equity, and sustainability in food distribution. Pick up organic produce, grass-fed meats, pasture-raised eggs, freshly-baked goods, locally-roasted coffee, flatbreads, flowers, and more.
 
Indulge in dinner, light bites, and drinks at the rooftop bar Conservatory in Ivy City, just five minutes from Trinidad. The culinary garden provides seasonal produce, microgreens, and herbs for food and beverages. Also in Ivy City is Gravitas, where the presentation is as elegant and refined as the cuisine. They specialize in American food prepared with local, seasonal ingredients. The wine list and cocktails are all expertly curated and crafted.
 
Throw Social is a tropical cocktail bar with small bites and fruity cocktails. It is hopping with entertainment with DJs and live music, TapGlo ping pong, and backyard-style games. Patrons can also kick back in the tropical bar, rooftop deck, or in furnished VIP cabanas.
 
CityCenterDC is an upscale mall with luxury brands like Burberry, Dior, and Chanel in Washinton, D.C. There are many unique locally owned boutiques in D.C., such as Salt & Sundry
