Benning, named for William Benning, the prominent landowner on the east side of the Anacostia, whom some speculate was a retired sea pirate, is a small neighborhood in Northeast DC. While still predominantly residential, the neighborhood, which is blessed with its own Metro Station, plays host to a fair number of businesses that serve the surrounding neighborhoods, including a Safeway. Most notably, the area is home to the Benning Campus of DC Prep
Benning's housing options consist of a fairly even blend of garden apartments and brick rowhouses, with a sprinkling of detached homes.
