Shaw

Shaw Real Estate

Shaw is a neighborhood located in the Northwest quadrant of Washington, D.C., named after Union Colonel Robert Gould Shaw, the commander of the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry during the American Civil War. The area consists of gridded streets lined with small Victorian rowhouses. It is dominated by Howard University–technically just north in the Pleasant Plains neighborhood–and the shops and theatres along U Street and centered along 7th Street NW, the original commercial hub of the area.

it is a mostly residential neighborhood of 19th century Victorian row houses. The architecture of these houses, Shaw’s central location, and the stability of D.C.’s housing market have transformed the neighborhood through gentrification. Shaw’s notable place in African American history has made the recent influx of affluent professionals particularly controversial. Among the area’s many landmarks are Ben’s Chili Bowl, the Lincoln Theatre, the Howard Theatre, Shiloh Baptist Church, The Watha T. Daniel/Shaw Neighborhood Library, the Twelfth Street YMCA Building, and the north portion of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

District of Columbia Public Schools operates public schools.
