Crestwood, which forms part of the residential area known as the Gold Coast on upper 16th Street NW, is a mainly residential neighborhood located in Northwest Washington, D.C. and bordered on three sides by Rock Creek Park. Heading north from the White House on 16th Street, Crestwood is among the first neighborhoods that features single-family homes and lawns.

Just to the north, residents can take advantage of the Carter Barron Amphitheater and William H.G. FitzGerald Tennis Center. The amphitheater hosts concerts and many free cultural events during the spring and summer, and the Legg Mason Tennis Classic is played at the Tennis Center next door. Crestwood is centrally located on 16th Street, being about ten to fifteen minutes by car from both the K Street business district and downtown Silver Spring, Maryland.
