Located in the Northwest quadrant of Washington, D.C., Bloomingdale is less than two miles north of the United States Capitol building. It is primarily a residential neighborhood, with a small commercial center near the intersection of Rhode Island Ave and 1st Street NW, featuring bars, restaurants, and food markets.
Most of Bloomingdale’s houses are Victorian-style townhouses built around 1900 as single-family homes. Today, these houses remain mostly single-family residences, with some recently converted to two-unit condos. The present-day neighborhood of Bloomingdale originated from several large estates. Bloomingdale has undergone substantial gentrification like many D.C. neighborhoods since the early 2000s, with the neighborhood’s once-numerous vacant properties being repurposed, rapidly shifting demographics, and sharp rises in property values. The area has several active neighborhood groups and associations including the Bloomingdale Civic Association.
Bloomingdale has its own community-managed and community-owned greenspace, Crispus Attucks Park. The Nathaniel Parker Gage School on Second Street, N.W. was built as a school in 1904. It is an historic structure, listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008, which now houses condominiums.
