The U Street Corridor is one of the most trendy and hot DC neighborhoods  It features an interesting smorgasbord of residential housing options including restored Victorian-era row houses, upscale lofts and contemporary urban condo developments.  

U Street redeveloped and has flourished after the U Street/African-American Civil War Memorial/Cardozo Metro Station was opened in the neighborhood in 1991.  This station provides service to the Green Line and also to the Yellow line in off-peak hours.  The U street neighborhood has emerged as one of the District's top entertainment neighborhoods with many restaurants, club and shopping venues.

Often referred to as part of DC's Mid-City, the U Street Corridor neighborhood is bounded by R Street to the south, New Hampshire Avenue to the east, Florida Avenue to the north/west and 6th Street to the west.  DC neighborhoods adjacent to the U Street Corridor include Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights, Logan Circle and Shaw.
