Street View Trike While we’ve been able to visit some beautiful places around the world with the Street View car, some of the most interesting and fun places aren’t accessible by car. In order to reach some of the narrow alleyways in Europe, like those in Barcelona and Paris, a team of engineers built a tricycle-based camera system. This three-wheel pedi-cab with a camera system on top automatically gathers imagery as the operator pedals along. As a result, we’ve shared views from locations including theme parks, university campuses, zoos, Stonehenge, and UNESCO World Heritage sites across the globe.
Courtesy of As we’re wrapping up District neighborhoods before moving on to the Maryland and Virginia ‘burbs, this week our featured neighborhood is U Street– one of DC’s greatest neighborhoods.

Read on to find what you need to check out next time you’re in the area (including the bar where everybody knows your name), some surviving institutions from U Street’s heyday in the early twentieth century, and what makes U Street such a great neighborhood. History: The U Street neighborhood was originally developed between 1860 and 1900, and it was filled with Victorian-era homes for the post-Civil War influx of residents.
Then a streetcar came along and led to more commercial development along U Street. The U Street corridor became the most desirable area for African Americans to settle in the early 1900s, leading to the country’s largest urban African American community (until that title was claimed by Harlem in the 1920s).
It was a major cultural center for the black community, and it was known as “Black Broadway”, with Lincoln Theater and Howard Theater in the area. And Duke Ellington grew up in the neighborhood too! Here’s the part we all know– when the 1968 riots struck, U Street was the hardest hit neighborhood in the city.
Lots of violence and rioting led to the closure of many shops in the area, and residents started leaving in droves. The neighborhood really struggled in the 1960s and 1970s, becoming an area known for drugs and violence. But there’s a happy ending! In the 1990s and 2000s, the area had a building boom, with new condos, restaurants, and shopping options being constructed. This revitalization led to a new era for U Street, and. Courtesy of Neighborhood Character: U Street is just cool.
It’s filled with swanky bars, unique restaurants, down-to-earth holes in the wall, lots of ethnic food, and some great shopping opportunities. It has a mix of luxury condos that were built in the past decade or so, along with a bunch of typical DC rowhouses. And no matter what time of day you’re out in U Street, there’s always something going on– it is definitely one of the most active streets in the city. Catherine, U Street resident of three years and author of the fabulous, likes that U Street is a great cross section of the city. She says, “I think you really can see where DC’s creative class is thriving.
We have great art galleries along 14th Street, some wonderful little fashion stores, great funky shops. You can see it walking down the street with the fashion, cool bars, the graffiti. And then you have the history and the culture that goes along with it - the legacy of Black Broadway, which we celebrate. We still have jazz clubs, and then we have the new places honoring the history – Busboys and Poets, Marvin.” Transportation: U Street is in the middle of the city, and it is right in the middle of DC’s best transit options too.
