Fairlington has so much to offer and is one of Arlington’s best-kept secrets.
With immediate access to I-395 (and located adjacent to Shirlington), residents can easily get to downtown Washington, D.C. in minutes and many other key destinations throughout Northern Virginia and beyond.
The neighborhood dates back to the 1700s when it was owned by John Carlyle and even George Washington. In the 1930s, FDR enacted a decree to have the land developed for defense workers and their families. What you see as Fairlington today (primarily townhouse-type condominium apartments) was built in the 1940s as the largest housing project financed during World War II. Fairlington is listed on both the National Register of Historic Places and on the Virginia Landmarks Register.
A big draw to Fairlington is the access to many amazing neighborhood amenities, such as the Fairlington Community Center — which hosts a seasonal farmers market, and Fairlington Park featuring basketball courts, a fitness area and a playground. Fairlington is also a wonderful place for pets with a dedicated park (Utah Dog Park) and easy access to numerous trails including the famous Four-Mile Run Trail and the Washington and Old Dominion (W&OD) Trail.
Fairlington borders Alexandria and residents have easy access to the Bradlee Shopping Center which is anchored by a Fresh Market and it is just down the road from the Green Street Gardens of Virginia. Also, minutes away is Shirlington, a vibrant, welcoming, and diverse community that has everything you need whether craving food or entertainment. Check out my video and article on Shirlington here.
