More About U Street

The eastern and western borders of the U Street Corridor are fairly defined, because they cover the entire stretch of U Street, between 8th Street NW to the east (where it intersects with Florida Avenue) and 18th Street NW to the west (where it again intersects with Florida Avenue). For the first half of the 20th century, the U Street neighborhood was the nexus of DC’s African-American community, a site of thriving business and culture. This was the period that saw the rise of the neighborhood’s vibrant music and theater scene, earning it the moniker “Black Broadway”. During the second half of the 20th century, after the 1968 riots and the subsequent migration of people and businesses to other parts of the city, the neighborhood declined into relative squalor. Only a few historical institutions remained in operation, including the Lincoln Theatre (first opened in 1921) and Ben’s Chili Bowl (which started serving its iconic, chili-slathered half smokes in 1958). The late 1990s and early 2000s saw a turnaround, as more people and businesses, inspired by the revitalization of nearby Logan Circle, Dupont Circle, and Adams Morgan, returned to resurrect what had been considered lost.
