Near Northeast/H Street Corridor

The electricity of the H Street Corridor arts and entertainment district gives the historic Near Northeast its youthful verve.

The Near Northeast has bounced from trendy to neglected and back again. A lack of public transportation doesn’t stop visitors from flocking to its cool little bars and restaurants, while an alliance of young families and longtime residents work on making safety a priority. From folk concerts to cocktail lounges, the H Street Corridor, one of DC’s original commercial districts, packs in a phenomenal array of after-dark options.

As a freelance photographer based out of DC, I’ve had a lifelong desire to be submerged in different cultures, meet people of all walks of life, and eat bizarre foods. While my personal favorite escape is surfing remote warm-water breaks in Central America, I loved working on this project and discovering the many hidden subcultures that make up the diverse and often-mislabeled city of Washington, D.C.
