I don't know if I'd call it "popular" but people live there and it's nice. But like I said before, it's not the best area for people without a car. It's doable but you'd be reliant on buses to get you everywhere, unless you're really into biking or something like that. If I didn't have a car I would not want to have to rely on the buses for everything. I'd want to live close to a metro stop. Maybe look a little farther up Wisconsin around the Friendship Heights metro stop. Cleveland Park and Van Ness are good suggestions as well.

It's a nice, convenient area if you can afford it.

I used to go to grad school at AU and lived at a couple places in the area. The last apartment I lived in, Garfield House, was at Wisconsin and Garfield Sts. NW and $1300-1400 for a studio (slightly higher for 1-bed, I think). Some say that location's quite a walk from campus, but I didn't mind. And right there you're near all the Wisconsin Ave. buses that take you up to Tenleytown and down to Georgetown / Foggy Bottom as well as the Mass Ave. buses that can take you up to campus, if you don't want to walk, or down to Dupont Circle. It worked for me while I was at school there.

If you'd like more advice, feel free to message me.
