Mount Pleasant Street,
ca. 2004


During the second half of the 20th century, housing in Mount Pleasant was relatively affordable. Recent immigrants, students, young professionals, and families from diverse economic backgrounds populated the neighborhood. In 1986, residents wishing to preserve the neighborhood's architecture helped gain historic district status for Mount Pleasant. In the late 1990s, the cost of housing increased dramatically. Higher housing costs attracted wealthier residents, but also made it difficult for some longtime residents to remain.

Today Mount Pleasant is a vibrant neighborhood with an active citizenry and a reviving commercial district. Roughly 12,000 people live within its boundaries of 16th Street, Harvard Street, and Rock Creek Park. As of 2004 Mount Pleasant is one of the most ethnically, racially, and economically diverse neighborhoods in the city.
