The Brookland neighborhood lies in the Northeast quadrant of Washington DC. The boundaries are debatable, but it’s roughly outlined northeast by South Dakota Ave. NE, southeast and south by Rhode Island Ave. NE, west by the Metro tracks near 9th St. NE, and northwest and north by Michigan Ave. NE. The Catholic University of America (CUA) is generally associated with the neighborhood, which has contributed to the moniker “Little Rome” for its many landmark Catholic institutions (e.g., Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception) in or around the region. The suburban-like area is serviced by the Brookland-CUA Metro station and several Metro bus lines.
Historically the neighborhood started development in the 19th century. The Brookland name derives from Colonel Jehiel Brooks’ estate and the Greek-Revival mansion (Brooks Mansion), which he built in 1840. After the Civil War, the regional population grew, which was aided by connecting the neighborhood with Washington through the B&O Railroad and streetcar expansion. Many Victorian-styled homes from this era can still be found. Brookland integrated racially and economically by the mid-20th century, and for the most part, has remained diverse and stable. Prominent residents have included Pearl Bailey, Jean Kerr, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, and Justine Ward, to name few. Today there is a real sense of community among its diverse inhabitants.
There is a wide variety of housing styles and new developments in this neighborhood. Detached single-family residences, ranging from Victorian, Colonial, and Tudor, to Federal and bungalow styles, make up the majority. A few row-houses and duplexes can also be found. Housing prices are stable and somewhat reasonable. There are several new mixed-use developments being created, such as Monroe Street Market, which has attracted a healthy pedestrian presence. New restaurants (Menomale Pizza Napoletana, Potbelly), bars (Brookland Pint), retailers (The Bike Rack, Barnes & Noble), and art studios have increased the desirability of this growing neighborhood.
