Intersection of Calvert Street andConnecticut Avenue in Woodley Park



Straddling Connecticut Avenue south of the National Zoo is a neighborhood of fine early 20th-century row houses, a throwback to the days more than a century ago when developers hoped that this wide avenue that runs northward to the Maryland border would be a boulevard lined with elegant homes. Modern-day Connecticut Avenue north of the small Woodley Park historic district, however, is now mostly filled with high rent, high rise apartment houses — although the city’s height limitation restricts them to no more than eight stories, they are considered high-rise by Washington standards. To the east, the neighborhood’s curved streets overhang Rock Creek Park. On the west, they bend on the slope leading to the heights of Mt. Saint Albans, the site of Washington National Cathedral. The stately rows of meticulously designed houses are preserved intact, presenting streetscapes that have changed little for nearly a century. Though busy Connecticut Avenue is always just around the corner, the residential streets are leafy, green and serene.

On Connecticut Avenue, former row houses along the street have been converted into commercial properties, including restaurants, offices and retail shops. Two large hotels are located on Calvert Street (the Omni Shoreham Hotel) and Woodley Road (the Marriott Wardman Park hotel, the largest hotel in D.C.). At night, the place is a hive of activity, particularly since a shuttle bus (The Circulator) now runs between the Metro stop (Woodley Park/Adams Morgan) to the heart of Adams Morgan and the U Street Corridor. Shops and restaurants lining Connecticut Ave include many chains (such as a Baskin-Robbins, a Chipotle, a McDonald’s, and a CVS), but also many fine local restaurants and shops.

The area was named after Woodley House, built by Phillip Barton Key (the Uncle of Francis Scott Key) in 1801. Woodley has housed many political elites from President Grover Cleveland to World War 2 Secretary of War Henry Stimson.

The Woodley Park Community Association was established to support the in-town neighborhood quality of life in Woodley Park. It has several hundred members and works on issues of general neighborhood interest.
