The neighborhood boundaries are roughly defined as Missouri Avenue to the north, Spring Road to the south, 16th Street to the west, and Georgia Avenue to the east.

Sixteenth Street Heights real estate includes historic Craftsman bungalows and newly renovated homes. The hustle and bustle of the main commercial corridors along 14th Street and Georgia Avenue are tempered by the natural beauty of two nearby parks, Hamilton and Upshur. These popular mixed-use green spaces are maintained by the Friends of the 16th Street Heights Parks, a nonprofit advocacy group that seeks to improve the parks through national grants. Nearby Rock Creek Park is also a popular destination for residents in 16th Street Heights.
