The H Street Corridor is located in the Northeast quadrant of DC. Its four zones include business and residential sectors on the western end, a retail district, an arts and entertainment district, and a mall at its eastern end. It is walkable to Union Station, which offers Metro, Amtrak, VRE and MARC train service.
The H Street Corridor has transformed over the years. H Street was a major retail corridor for the District until the middle of the 20th century. The H Street Corridor saw significant damage in the 1968 riots following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King.
