The U Street Corridor neighborhood is located in the Northwest quadrant of D.C.  The neighborhood was developed in 1860 to 1900. There was an influx of post-Civil War residents who sparked a cultural renewal, which helped create the vibrant culture in this neighborhood today. In the late 1990’s and early 2000’s buildings, stores, and restaurants were built in to accomodate the growing population.
