The Yorktown neighborhood is located north of Lee Highway in the area of the intersections with George Mason Boulevard and Harrison Street (see our association map on our Membership page). It is a vibrant residential neighborhood with over 1000 homes of steadily increasing property value.
The neighborhood is also home to Yorktown High School, which educates over 1600 of Arlington's finest young men and women. Yorktown High is a public school which has won national awards and consistently ranks among the top ten high schools in the entire Washington, D.C. area. Construction on a major addition to Yorktown High is scheduled to begin in mid-2003, with a complete renovation of the school expected in the years ahead.
While the neighborhood is primarily residential in focus, there is no shortage of fine shopping and dining opportunities within the neighborhood -- all within walking distance for most of our residents. The Lee Harrison Shopping Center boast a new Harris-Teeter grocery and several new restaurants and other shops. Another major grocer, Safeway, also is located in the neighborhood.
The Yorktown neighborhood also boasts 3 parks: Greenbrier, Chestnut Hills and Rock Spring.
