Up-and-coming is not quite the term to describe Near Northeast / H Street Corridor, as the neighborhood cycles between trendy and forgotten. Despite it’s reputation H Street NE, dazzles with its nightlife, trendy restaurants, hole-in-the-wall bars and a rotation of festivals culminating in the H Street Festival in the fall. The H Street Corridor is a mile and a half stretch that attracts art lovers with an ever changing performance calendar at the Atlas Performing Arts Center. Foodies flock to the H Street Fresh Farmer’s market on Saturdays in the spring and summer or the eclectic mix of restaurants in the Corridor’s streets all year round.
At the intersection of Florida Ave NE, Bladensburg Road, Benning Road and Maryland Avenue you’ll find H Street Corridor spanning to the west. Not too far to the south are the US Capitol Grounds, while the Gallaudet University is to the North. Some ways to get here is by the X1, X2 and X8 Metrobus lines along H Street, or the Union Station stop for the Metrorail’s Red Line and several others passing through.
