Zack Lewkowicz has lived in the Capitol Riverfront for two years. As a U.S. Department of Transportation employee, he appreciates the incredible convenience and walkability of the neighborhood. When not at his day job, Zack spends most of his time taking pictures all over the District. The Yards Park is one of his favorite places to shoot since it's close in proximity to his apartement and super photogenic. Visit www.zackowicz.com to check out Zack's local photos!
Why did you decide to move to the Capitol Riverfront?
I moved from Buffalo, NY to work for the Department of Transportation. Living near my job seemed like the perfect choice after I toured around the neighborhood. It's an easy and walkable waterfront location with Metro, grocery access, and parks. Pretty sure I made the right decision to move here!
What is your favorite place to dine in the neighborhood?
TaKorean is easily my favorite. Fast service, friendly staff, and it’s delicious. I’m also a big fan of Bonchon’s crispy wings and Bluejacket’s double burger.
How would you describe the Capitol Riverfront to friends and visitors?
I would say that the area has a very dynamic flow to it. When there’s a big event going on or the Nats are in town, you really feel the hustle and bustle city vibe. On the off days everything is more relaxed and quiet. I like that it never gets too hectic here.
What is your favorite event in the Capitol Riverfront?
Baseball games at Nats Park are the best part of summer and fall. When baseball season is going, the neighborhood really comes alive. The summer movie series is also another awesome activity to bring friends to.
As new apartment buildings are opening in the neighborhood, you’re getting more Capitol Riverfront neighbors. What is your best advice for those who have just moved to the Capitol Riverfront?
Get outside and take part in all the neighborhood events and activities.
What has been the most significant change you’ve seen in the neighborhood since you’ve moved here?
The skyline has changed significantly since I moved in. New buildings are going up every couple of months, which bring new retail and restaurants to try.
