Washington Walks: Columbia Heights

OtherWashington Walks Tour of D.C.'s Columbia Heights Neighborhood

The 14th Street corridor between Irving Street and Park Road at one time was one of Washington, D.C.'s most thriving shopping and entertainment destinations outside of downtown. Then, in 1968, riots following the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. sparked extensive looting and burning of commercial property. For years afterward, boarded-up businesses and empty lots marred the formerly vibrant Columbia Heights area. Now the area is experiencing a cultural and commercial resurgence, making it a hot spot once again. On this fun and informative two-hour Washington Walks tour, hear the history and see the exciting changes that have taken place.
