LeDroit Park Features & Amenities
If you’re interested in moving into a neighborhood in transition, then put LeDroit Park high on your watch list. The name of the area comes from LeDroict Langdon, whose son-in-law, Amzi Barber, founded the neighborhood in 1873 (and dropped the “c” from the name). Barber was a local businessman and served on the board of trustees at Howard University. Langston Hughes, the great poet, called LeDroit Park home for a time. Griffith Stadium, home of the Washington Redskins and old Washington Senators, stood in LeDroit Park from 1911 to 1965, and is now the site of Howard University Hospital.
Although there aren’t as many dining and shopping options as neighborhoods to the west, there are some options in LeDroit Park. Try Thai X-ing on Florida Ave NW for out-of-this-world Thai cuisine. The Park at LeDroit offers a playground, a dog park, and a community garden.
