Mount Pleasant is a neighborhood in the Northwest quadrant of Washington, D.C., capital of the United States. The neighborhood is bounded by 16th Street, NW and the Columbia Heights neighborhood to the east, Rock Creek Park to the north and west, and Harvard Street, NW and the Adams Morgan neighborhood to the south. The neighborhood is home to approximately twelve thousand people, or about 2% of D.C.’s population. Today, Mount Pleasant is a diverse community of affluent people, middle class wage earners, working class people, and immigrants.


The current population of Mount Pleasant is almost evenly divided; about one-third Caucasian, one-third Hispanic, and one-third African-American. The western four-fifths of the area is a largely wooded enclave bounded on two sides by Rock Creek Park, where there are about 1200 row houses, many include one or two apartments. A few of the original 19th century wood-frame houses remain, mostly north of Park Road. Recently, these properties sold for prices between $800,000 and $1.2 million, more than most neighborhoods near a Metro station. The eastern border of Mount Pleasant, along 16th and Mount Pleasant Streets, is marked by mid-rise apartment buildings. These buildings offer rental housing to employees working for non-profits, students, and working class people. There is a four-block commercial corridor with convenience shopping in the neighborhood along Mount Pleasant Street. In 2008, a large retail development was completed in Columbia Heights, just east of Mount Pleasant.
