SW/Waterfront

Southwest (SW or S.W.) is the southwestern quadrant of Washington, D.C., and is located south of the National Mall and west of South Capitol Street. It is the smallest quadrant of the city. Southwest is small enough that it is frequently referred to as a neighborhood in and of itself. However, it actually contains five separate neighborhoods. The Southwest Waterfront is between I-395 and Fort Lesley J. McNair. Southwest Waterfront is a primarily residential neighborhood. It also is home to several Washington DC marinas, the Maine Avenue Fish Market, Arena Stage, Fort McNair, and Hains Point; East and West Potomac Park, a conjunction of two national parks between I-395 and the National Mall that contain the Tidal Basin, and the Jefferson Memorial. The Blue, Orange, and (under construction) Silver lines of the Washington Metro have the following stations in the Southwest Federal Center: Smithsonian, LÍEnfant Plaza, and Federal Center SW. The Yellow line also stops at LÍEnfant Plaza. The Green line has a stop in the Southwest Federal Center at LÍEnfant Plaza and in the Southwest Waterfront at Waterfront-SEU. In 2008, the Nationals Park stadium, located on the east side of Capitol Avenue and thus in SE, opened for the Washington Nationals Major League Baseball team bringing a host of new commercial and residential growth near and into the SW Waterfront area. The zip code for the neighborhood is 20024.
