LeDroit Park

LeDroit Park is a neighborhood in northwest Washington, D.C. located immediately southeast of Howard University. Its borders include W Street to the north, Rhode Island Avenue and Florida Avenue to the south, Second Street NW to the east, and Georgia Avenue to the west.

LeDroit Park was one of the first suburbs of Washington. Many of the areaÍs Victorian mansions, houses and rowhouses were developed and marketed as a ñromanticî neighborhood with narrow tree-lined streets that bore the same names as the trees that shaded them. Originally the neighborhood did not follow the scheme for street names used in the rest of Washington DC. Extensive focus was placed on the landscaping of this neighborhood, as developers spent a large sum of money to plant flower beds and trees to attract high profile professionals from the city. The zip code for the neighborhood is 20001.
