Michele Buckman has put together some videos discussing the current DC market and what the future may hold for the real estate market in the Washington DC area.
Shaw is one of Northwest, Washington, D.C.'s fastest up and coming neighborhoods. Located between N Street NW to the south; New Jersey Avenue NW to the east; Florida Avenue NW to the north and 11th Street NW to the west, Shaw is comprised of primarily residential neighborhoods of 19th century Victorian row homes. The appeal of such homes and their property has rocketed Shaw to the top of the D.C. housing market.
During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Shaw was the center of African-American intellectual and cultural life. It was during this period, sometimes referred to as the Black Renaissance of DC, that Shaw saw the emergence of such musical greats as Duke Ellington and the frequent visits of Langston Hughes.
Steeped in rich African American history and culture, the neighborhood of Shaw is home to such landmarks as the Lincoln Theatre, the Dunbar Theatre, the infamous eatery Ben's Chili Bowl, as well as Howard University. Over the last decade, Shaw has undergone a huge transformation due to the popularity of neighboring Adams Morgan. A variety of restaurants and shops have steadily streamed into Shaw. This is especially the case for D.C.'s infamous Ethiopian cuisine.
Easily accessible from the Mount Vernon Square Metro (Shaw/Howard University station off the green line), Shaw has become a popular location for those young professionals who work in Washington D.C.'s downtown.
