Bloomingdale

The northwest neighborhood of Bloomingdale is in the heart of Washington, D.C. less than two miles north of the U.S. Capitol. Bloomingdale lies south of Channing Street NW, east of 2nd Street NW, north of Rhode Island Avenue, and west of North Capitol Street. Howard University borders the neighborhood on the north. Most of the homes within Bloomingdale are rowhouses built around 1900 and are in the Victorian style. Nearby neighborhoods that border Bloomingdale are LeDroit Park to the west, Eckington to the east, and Shaw to the southwest.

Today Bloomingdale proudly maintains its close-knit community-oriented character. The neighborhood has recently undergone revitalization. Not all of BloomingdaleÍs energy has gone into improving the homes as new businesses have also recently opened to serve the residents. Additionally, Bloomingdale is the rare DC neighborhood to have its own greenspace, Crispus Attucks Park (CAP). The acre-and-a-quarter park, located within the court bounded by 1st, U, V, and North Capitol Streets NW, is dedicated to all victims of violence. CAP is privately owned, but open to the public, and is maintained through the donations of time, money, and sweat of neighbors as a beautiful urban greenspace. The zip code for the neighborhood is 20001.
