WHAT NOT TO EXPECT

The same tumult of nearby and booming areas.

The small neighborhood in Northeast Washington is tucked among Florida Avenue, Rhode Island Avenue and North Capitol Street but is mainly residential within those borders. McKinley Technology High School serves as a central point, sitting atop a hill and overlooking the clusters of townhouses that line the surrounding streets.

Walking the streets along Eckington’s eastern half, passersby can hear the trains roaring by the old warehouses and manufacturing plants. For many residents, the grittiness of Eckington’s industrial past provides a real city feel. There’s an asphalt recycling plant and the Amtrak tracks run through here, so it has this feel of true urbanity. 

Despite its traffic woes, Eckington is an extremely walkable neighborhood that offers immediate connection to other parts of the city.
