U Street from the Civil War to Black Broadway
The development boom in the U Street neighborhood, much of which is now the Greater U Street Historic District, began around the start of the Civil War. A few years later, in 1867, Howard University was founded. The all-black university quickly became an integral part of the neighborhood and an important part of African American culture in Washington, DC. The school was noted for its many influential academics in the fields of medicine, science, literature, law, architecture, business and more.
That tradition continues today. The significance of African American soldiers, sailors and other contributors to the Civil War effort is also commemorated through the African American Civil War Memorial at the corner of U Street NW, 10th and Vermont, as well as the museum of the same name that is located across the street.
The U Street Corridor was also a mecca of entertainment during its early days, dubbed “Black Broadway” and home to countless stars of color, including Cab Calloway, Pearl Bailey, Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington and others. Bailey herself is the one credited with the Black Broadway phrase. Her illustrious career began as a teenage singer and dancer at venues like Howard Theatre and Republic Gardens.
The U Street Corridor Today
Historic venues such as the Howard Theatre and Lincoln Theatre have been restored and renovated and are central to the neighborhood’s rebirth as a cultural and entertainment mecca. Other popular clubs and halls include the U Street Music Hall, DC9, Twins Jazz, Flash, 9:30 and many more. There’s also no shortage to bars, restaurants, coffeehouses, art galleries, bookstores and places to feed your body, your mind or soul. Strolling along U Street, or cross streets like 14th Street NW which is one of Washington’s most notable restaurant rows, is to experience the eclectic energy that is so synonymous with the District’s top urban neighborhoods.
Transit Options in U Street Corridor
The vibrancy of the U Street Corridor is best enjoyed on foot. This is the second-most walkable community in all of Washington, and that’s certainly saying a lot! Whether strolling, jogging, bicycling or even balancing on one of the pesky electric battery scooters that now zip along streets and sidewalks throughout the nation’s urban neighborhoods, you’ll be treated to a slideshow of sights and sounds.
Metrorail transit is also a snap, with the U Street/African-American Civil War Memorial/Cardozo station as well as the Shaw-Howard University station both conveniently located. Residents at the Beauregard also have access to secure parking. Just wheel your steel beast out of the garage and head out along the grid of streets that connects you to all parts of the city and beyond.
