Considered one of the oldest surviving residential neighborhoods in the city, the Central District, or commonly referred to as the CD, is as culturally diverse as you can get. Bursting with diverse food such as Ethiopian and soul food, it’s also very rich in the arts with institutions like the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute and the Northwest African American Museum. Lately it has seen huge growth in new construction and community improvement projects. Median home values in the CD zip codes are $720,000-$799,000 – a 5.9% increase over the past year and predicted to rise by 5.1% within the next year.
