More About Navy Yard, Washington, DC

Bordered by the Anacostia River along its southeastern shore, the Navy Yard dates back to 1799, and was once of the nation’s busiest military shipyards. The manufacturing facilities shifted from ships to naval ordnance during the World War II era. By the 1960s, the Washington Navy Yard had become largely administrative, and the shoreline was rife with industrial decay. A lengthy period of cleanup and renewal led the way to the current era. The Navy is still present through administrative headquarters and ceremonial purposes but with a reduced footprint compared to the shipyard’s heyday.

Today’s Navy Yard neighborhood still honors its illustrious past, including visitor attractions like the Naval Historic Center and the U.S. Navy Museum. Residential areas with new luxury real estate properties, include The Yards, and Capitol Riverfront. There are numerous amenities and attractions in addition to the baseball stadium mentioned earlier, including Canal Park Outdoor Ice Skating, Yards Park with summer concerts, the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail, and the Capitol Riverfront Dancing Fountains. Among the many popular restaurants in the neighborhood are Gatsby, CIRCA at Navy Yard, Due South, Mission-Navy Yard, Shilling Canning Company, Agua 301, The Salt Line, Chloe, Osteria Moroni, and so many more.
