The City of Hyattsville is composed of several zip codes. Downtown Hyattsville benefitted from significant revitalization with the EYA townhomes and central retail and restaurant, and the creation of the arts district. Hyattsville’s historic district is located in the southeast. The relatively large and well-maintained homes in the historic district include 1920s and 1930s-era Victorians, bungalows, and some quirky-hard-to-define styles. Most of the town’s detached homes are modest WW2-era homes on decent-sized lots. The newer townhomes breath more modern architecture into the city.
Restaurants, Retail, and Entertainment
Franklin's Brewery, Restaurant, and General Store has been a dining and retail staple in the neighborhood since the 90's. The recent revitalization brought Busboys & Poets, Tara Thai, Elevation Burger, Chipotle, and Yes! Organic Market. Other neighborhood offerings include taquerias and pupuserias. Costco and Ikea can be found further north on Route 1, as can some dive bars frequented by college students.
