Guide to Brightwood / Manor Park

Street Art in Washington DC's Brightwood/Manor Park Neighborhood
Neighborhood Church in Washington DC's Brightwood/Manor Park Neighborhood

Brightwood/Manor Park is a neighborhood located in the northwestern quadrant of Washington, D.C. This historic area is surrounded by beautiful parks and important forts. Its affordable houses and its location to Takoma and Silver Springs allow a cozy neighborhood to be within close proximity to the nightlife of Maryland and Washington, D.C.

Close to Takoma & Silver Spring

Brightwood/Manor Park is roughly belted by 16th Street to the west, Fern and Van Buren Street to the north, Blair Road to the east, and Kennedy and Decatur Street to the south. Colonial Village/Shepherd Park and Takoma border the neighborhood to the north, Riggs Park/Michigan Park is to the east, and Petworth and Crestwood/16th Street Heights to the south. Silver Spring is a five-minute drive while Takoma Park is just north on the other side of the state line.

Fort Stevens & Other Historic Sites

Brightwood/Manor Park is home to Fort Stevens. During the Civil War, the Union Army built a fortification near the historic Emory Church. The church was torn down, and the bricks were used to build Fort Stevens and baking ovens. Fort Stevens was soon attacked by 20,000 Confederates, but eventually the Confederates were repulsed. Following petitions from the congregation for wishing to receive compensation for the torn-down church, Congress established a park at the site and a memorial plaque.

Some of the fallen soldiers are buried in the nearby historic Battleground National Cemetery. This military burial ground is located along Georgia Avenue and is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. Some other notable sites listed as a historic place include Engine Company 22, Fort View Apartments, and the Military Road School—one of the first schools in Washington to educate African-Americans.

Takoma, Fort Totten, and the Petworth Metro Stations

Brightwood/Manor Park lacks a metro station. However, the northern section of the neighborhood is a five-minute walk from the Takoma Station on the Red Line. Below the southern section of the neighborhood are the Fort Totten Station on the Red, Yellow, and Green Lines and also the Petworth Station on the Yellow and Green Lines. Both of these stations are about a ten to fifteen minute drive. The Metrobus also takes you to each station. The 70, 71, and 79 run north and south of Georgia Avenue. The S1, S2, S4, and D33 serve 16th Street and the E2, E3, and E4 run east and west on Kennedy Street. The neighborhood is also relatively close to I-495.

Plenty of Housing Options

One of the more notable elements of living in Brightwood/Manor Park is the housing stock. Most streets of the neighborhood consist of moderately-sized and well-maintained row houses. There are also duplexes, detached bungalows, colonials, apartment buildings, and some new condominiums. If you’re looking for real estate in Washington D.C., then Brightwood/Manor Park should be considered for its affordable, quality homes.

Travel to Takoma for Great Restaurants

This neighborhood isn’t a place where you can walk and find a variety of restaurants, bars or stores. The offerings mostly include Caribbean and Chinese takeout. However, nearby Takoma offers plenty of dining choices with the best of them lined up on the same block. Roscoes’s Pizzeria is a bright, pleasant spot located on Carroll Avenue. This pizza restaurant offers Neapolitan-style pizzas as well as pastas. For dessert, try the white chocolate bread pudding.

Next door is Mark’s Kitchen. This casual, bustling restaurant serves a mix of Korean and American dishes with vegan options. Some Korean favorites are the bibimbap, kimchi, and the Yang Nyum Tofu. The crab cake sandwich is also a tasty option. For more of a homegrown restaurant, try Republic. This seafood-centric restaurant comes with an oyster bar and favors local produce with a healthy and vegetarian-friendly menu. This spot also features local musicians performing on certain nights.

For some musical entertainment, check out Takoma Station. This lad back venue, near the actual metro station, produces soul, jazz, and other musical acts in its small and cozy space. They also have a full bar and pub food.

Rock Creek Park

Rock Creek Park dominates the western edge of the neighborhood. This large green space is filled with trails intertwining one another. Some of the trails include the Valley Trail, Western Ridge Trail, and the Rock Creek Trail. The park itself features trails for bicycling, a picnicking area, a planetarium, tennis courts, horse trails, and playgrounds among other things. The site also features unique recreational and astronomy programs, ranger-led tours, the Thompson boat center where you can rent kayaks and canoes, as well as an 18-hole golf course.

Fort Slocum Park is located near the southern point of the neighborhood. This national park consists of forests and open fields for walking, picnicking, and also includes a historic marker honoring Civil War history.

At the end of the day Brightwood/Manor Park is a great place to call home. Along with its close proximity to Silver Spring and Takoma, this historic neighborhood has become a wonderful option among homebuyers looking at real estate in Washington, D.C.

Insight

Rock Creek Golf Course

Does Lee Elder's name ring a bell. He broke the color barrier at the Master's Golf Tournament. Years before Lee broke down those doors, he would often be found at Rock Creek Golf Course taking on all comers. The course, although changed when new roads were built, remains. It is a tight, tree lined sanctuary within shouting distance of the White House. Locals still gather to test their skills and if up for it, they can join in the various games on the putting green. Just make sure you bring a dollar or two. The course remains as challenging today as when Lee walked here.
