The Home is on the border of the 3 hottest neighborhoods in D.C.: 1. Shaw: Commercial action is centered here and on nearby U St. Corridor, a local choice for good food and good fun. The rest of the neighborhood is mostly row houses and friendly, independent businesses. Students from nearby Howard University keep the area feeling young at heart, while great transportation links Shaw easily to DC's downtown areas. Palpable evening energy emanates from some of DC's newest hotspots along neighboring 14th Street, a quick walk or bus ride away. 2. Bloomingdale: Bloomingdale wasn’t part of Pierre L’Enfant’s original plan, and started out as a pretty rural area. It was next to the planned suburb LeDroit Park, and didn’t really see much residential development until the 1890s when streets were paved and a streetcar connected through the area. Bloomingdale quickly became home to rowhouses, churches, and schools, and has remained a quiet, residential neighborhood ever since. Bloomingdale boasts everything from chill dive bars, to yoga studios, to Gearin' Up, a local bike co-op, right off the nearby Metropolitan Branch Trail, the perfect place to go for a bike ride and check out some of DC's best murals. 3. Eckington: Lots of great bars, restaurants, and new developments are beginning to characterize Eckington, a classic D.C. neighborhood that connects Rhode Island Ave NE and New York Ave NE. Check out the coolest new food vendors in the city at nearby Union Market, a DC food hall / food laboratory in the old warehouse district. Then hop on the red line at NoMA-Galluadet station to head downtown. Neighborhood Character: The neighborhood consists of several blocks of tree-lined streets of Victorian rowhouses with porches and front stoops, and residents make use of them. Elle, In Bloom writer, and an area resident, says her favorite thing about the neighborhood is that “it can take over an hour to walk a block because my neighbors all want to say hello and have a chat.” Bloomingdale is a small neighborhood that hosts a number of community events, including a fantastic weekly farmers’ market (Sundays from 10 AM to 2 PM) and an annual Halloween block party called the Thomas Street Spooktacular. Big Bear Cafe is a local Bloomingdale favorite, and Windows Cafe has good sandwiches. Neighbors swear by Timor Bodega, an organic grocery featuring local produce. Bloomingdale is home to Crispus Attucks Park, a lovely, community-based neighborhood park. Other Restaurants and bars: A few blocks west into Bloomingdale, there are plenty of restaurants within 10 minutes walking distance to enjoy - The Pub and the People, The Red Hen, Boundary Stone, and Show Time Lounge, to name a few. If you keep going, you'll hit booming Shaw with its myriad of coffeehouses, local breweries, bars and clubs. Head east, and a short walk will take you through Eckington to Union Market, the old warehouse district, and the D.C. Angelika, one of the best independent movie theaters in NE.
Address : If needed, we can provide metro cards. (Please top off the metro card balance during your stay, and return the card for the next guest.) The fastest way to get to the National Mall is by the 80 bus (15-minutes). It picks up right in front of the house. If you want to take the metro, the house is a 10-minute walk to the Howard University/Shaw Metro stop on the Green/Yellow Line. The house is a 5 minute walk to the NoMA metro station (Red line). It's a short 2 minute walk to two other bus lines (G8, P6). Besides public transit, Uber, Lyft and cabs are a great way to get around the city. I would recommend ordering an Uber or Lyft if traveling from the house. If you are new to uber / lyft, ask Caroline for her discount code which gives you a discount off your first ride. If hailing a cab, walk a few short blocks to North Capitol St. The Closest Airport : Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport Train Union Station is closest station, just 1 mile away!
Other things to note
Totally private, so the space is all yours. Enjoy being a block from all of the best nightlife in D.C. -- The Brixton, Nellies, the 9:30 Club, and many of DC's most unique and fun restaurants. Located 1 block from the U St. metro stop (yellow/green lines) and Shaw/Howard University station (yellow/green lines). You can access downtown, sightseeing, office buildings, the Washington Convention Center, Chinatown, and even Nationals baseball games effortlessly. It is located "where you want to be" in DC. Furthermore, the house is nestled in the cutest Victorian brownstone neighborhood, with a lovely park and playground only three houses away. Parking ! There's typically lots of off-street parking close to the house. The block on the side of the house of the house is not zoned so there should not be issues parking during the day on weekdays, otherwise there are two hour limits for non-zoned cars. But I have a guest parking pass from the city I am always happy to share!
