DC’s 14th Street NW is a lively area that connects the U Street and Logan Circle neighborhoods. The New York Times just published a piece on the revitalization of the street, pointing to the new developments cropping up at every block of the strip, including the ginormous JBG Louis project at 14th and U. Although it used to be a hub for “prostitutes and drug dealers,” a few key factors helped change the character of the neighborhood, including the Whole Foods that opened in 2000.
