rhode island avenue

One of the original streets planned out for the capital, Rhode Island Avenue is now well known as a commuting route, taking drivers from Prince George’s County and US Route 1 into the city. It’s also quickly emerging though as something else, thanks to new and proposed development in the area.

Starting in Downtown Washington in the west, the avenue takes drivers past the Cathedral of St. Matthew, the Apostle, intersects roads such as Massachusetts Avenue, and heads into the neighborhood of Logan Circle. It then goes through several mostly residential neighborhoods, like Brentwood and Shaw. Serviced by the Metro’s red and green lines at different points, Rhode Island Avenue eventually merges with Baltimore Avenue, continuing with US Highway 1.

 howard theatre washington dc

Founded 150 years ago, Howard University has been part of the DC area for generations. As it continues its legacy as one of the nation’s top historically black colleges, the neighborhood around the campus is changing.
