Bloomingdale Offers Beautiful Victorian Row Houses



The opening credit sequence of acclaimed TV show, House of Cards, features several shots of the Bloomingdale neighborhood along North Capitol Street between R Street and T Street.  Bloomingdale is a quiet residential neighborhood in northwest DC, less than 2 miles from the U.S. Capitol, featuring Victorian-style row houses built circa 1900 as single-family homes; some have recently been converted to 2-unit condos.  Bloomingdale feels like a small town suburb but is nestled in the middle of the city, consisting of several blocks of tree-lined streets of Victorian row houses with porches and front stoops where residents can be found talking to their neighbors.  It is near Rhode Island and First Street, NW, featuring restaurants, bars and farmers markets.

A beautiful neighborhood, Bloomingdale is bounded to the north by Channing Street, NW, to the east by North Capitol Street, to the south by Florida Avenue and to the west by Second Street, NW.  Nearby are the neighborhoods of Shaw, U Street and Columbia Heights.  Bloomingdale, like many DC neighborhoods, has witnessed tremendous urban gentrification and young families moving in; sharp rises in property values; and shifting economic and racial demographics.  A handful of high-end businesses have followed, including a Yoga District and popular local restaurant Big Bear Cafe that has become a neighborhood gathering place.

In the 1890s, this rural area saw residential development, streets were paved and a streetcar connected through the area.  Bloomingdale is now home to row houses, churches and schools.  Good bus access comes through the neighborhood and Capital Bikeshare is located here as well.  Bloomingdale is also home to the lovely Crispus Attucks Park, a neighborhood park maintained by the community.
