U Street Corridor
The U Street Corridor is a neighborhood located in the NW quadrant of Washington DC that is experiencing gentrification and revitalization. Investment in the U Street neighborhood has followed the opening of the U Street/Cardozo Metro Station in 1991.
This neighborhood has a colorful history as one of the country's African American cultural centers and was home to prominent artists, including Duke Ellington. The U Street Corridor experienced significant rioting after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. and was a blighted neighborhood for a couple of decades following the riots. One U Street constant is Ben's Chili Bowl, a neighborhood favorite restaurant spanning five decades. Read more about U Street Corridor real estate.
