Additional Information about the Area
In addition to LeDroit Park, Shaw is also associated with the U Street Corridor. This historic part of the District dates back to around 1800 and was eventually named for Colonel Robert Gould Shaw—a white Union Army officer who led an all-black regiment. The Shaw neighborhood was an epicenter of black culture during the late 1800s through much of the 20th century. Duke Ellington and Pearl Bailey were among the many star attractions at nightspots along U Street which was then referred to as Black Broadway.
Howard University, a historically black private school founded in 1867, is also an integral part of the community’s story. The main campus with its beautiful old buildings is in a hilly area within easy walking distance of U Street, the legendary Howard Theatre and the Shaw-Howard U Green Line. Today, this vibrant and culturally diverse area with its top restaurants, shops and entertainment, melds historic significance with the evolving DC landscape.
