Cathedral Heights — 6/10 Rating (based on 4 neighborhood reviews)
It seems like if you live or work at AU, this is a great neighborhood for you. Also if you work on the N2/N4/N6 route and want to be sort of tucked-back into the semi-suburbs but won't be bothered by college kids, it's also a great neighborhood for that. Mass Ave South of campus is basically all apartments for a few blocks so that really is the neighborhood. Not that it's not a great neighborhood if you're not involved with AU, but since I went there, most of the people I know around here are affiliated with the school.

Nice suburban feel in the city. Definitely a safer place than most and generally convenient to other places with enough bus routes. In addition, there's never a problem with food as a nice walk around to a eatery is never out of the question.

It is a great neighborhood if you are going to American University, a short walk or bus ride to campus. They are starting to add more restaurants and shops nearby and its great that the new Giant and CVS opened by the Cathedral. If you have a car, you can certainly find parking and get to everything quickly.
