Brookland, DC’s “Little Rome”, has been named over the years one of the best neighborhoods in DC and offers easy access to the pulse of the city with a combination of a lively arts zone (the Arts Walk at Monroe Street Market), charming, bungalow-filled streets, green spaces, and a diverse community. Nearby, long-running Dance Place offers many performances a year starring edgy contemporary choreography.
The Metropolitan Branch Trail only a few steps away, is an urban rail-with-trail that shares a corridor with Metro’s Red Line, MARC commuter service, and Amtrak. Currently, the trail is a mix of on-road and off-road facilities. Beginning at Union Station with a wide sidepath along 2nd Street, NE, the trail becomes an off-road pathway for 1.5 miles between L Street, NE, and Franklin Street. Via grade-separated crossings of Rhode Island, New York and Florida avenues, this section of the trail provides a link between many of Northeast DC’s neighborhoods, including Brookland, Eckington, Edgewood and NoMa.
Continuing north, the trail is routed on 8th Street, NE, and along a sidepath on John McCormack Road near Catholic University. From here, the Met Branch follows a signed on-street bike route to Takoma Park, where a small section of off-road trail crosses the border between the District and Maryland. The current trail includes 4 miles, and future plans call for the replacement of portions of the current on-street route with an off-road trail, as well as a direct connection with an extended Capital Crescent Trail in Silver Spring adding 4 additional miles.
