BLOOMINGDALE is a historic neighborhood created by the land from several large estates in the 19th century. Most of the homes in Bloomingdale are row houses built around 1900 in the Victorian style. The neighborhood is bounded by Channing St. NW on the north and Florida Avenue NW on the south.
LEDROIT PARK, immediately to the west of Bloomingdale, was founded in 1873 by a businessman on the board of trustees of neighboring Howard University, who named the neighborhood after his father-in-law, LeDroict Langdon. As one of the first suburbs of Washington, LeDroit Park was developed and marketed as a “romantic” neighborhood with narrow tree-lined streets that bore the same names as the trees that shaded them, differing from the alphabet street names used in the rest of the city.
