Bloomingdale

Bloomingdale is in Northwest DC, just north of the Capitol, alongside Ledroit Park. The Bloomingdale area was not part of Pierre L’Enfant’s original city plan and was a rural area of large estates and orchards until the late 19th century. A flour mill was built at the corner of 3rd and Florida Avenue in the 1890s and train yards were soon to follow. Development continued with new transportation routes and paved roads at the turn of the century, making way for new urban residences. 

Quality of Life:

Bloomingdale continues to thrive as a small residential community. Like Ledroit Park, community has a wonderful selection of historic and well-appointed row houses. The neighborhood is quiet, accessible and close to many of DC’s monuments and universities, as well as commercial services, restaurants and grocery stores.

Getting Around:

Rhode Island Avenue and Florida Avenue cut across the Bloomingdale community. 2nd Street and North Capitol Street mark the west and east boundaries respectively. Like those in Ledroit Park, Bloomingdale residents are a short walk to either the New York Avenue Metro or Shaw Metro stations, as well as other Metro services.
