Chinatown is a small, densely populated urban neighborhood in NW DC located between H and I Streets and between 5th and 8th Streets. Once home almost exclusively to Chinese and other Asian immigrants and their businesses, Chinatown was revitalized almost overnight when the Verizon Center (originally named the MCI Center) was built in 1997. At once higher end restaurants like Jaleo and Rosa Mexicana came to the neighborhood, to be followed by amenity rich luxury condos and hotels. Today you can find one bedroom condos for sale in Chinatown in the $400,000’s, and two bedroom condos in the $600,000’s and $700,000’s.
Chinatown is served by the Gallery Place metro station.
