  • Maybe two single family homes were created from what use to be one?

  • I wish I had a 1/2 in my address. It makes me think of the Ninja Turtles movie when the pizza guy is trying to find an address with 3/4 on it. 🙂

  • I’m not sure how the DC tax records usually show a house that has a 1/2 attached to the number, but there is only one house listed for 1718 5th St NW – no 1718 1/2 or anything else.

  • or maybe the Ninja Turtles had a half as well, and I am thinking of Harry Potter’s train platform 9 and 3/4’s.

  • There’s a 9 1/2 St NW, just off U…how hard it would be to have to explain that…maybe they should go digital and make it 9.5.

  • It’s usually when a house was built where there was not one when the block was originally developed. Formerly the yard of an adjacent house or an alley that is no longer, things like that.

  • “half” streets are usually former alleys that have been developed to the point where they become actual streets.

  • Yes there used to be a bunch of half streets. Now I think there are just 3 (9.5, 13.5 (by the Reagan Center), and 4.5).

    Citypaper did a piece, some time ago, on some of the residence of 9 1/2 St. Apparently, it can be a problem when calling the authorities.


  • And Half Street SW!

  • Kickballers in Georgetown is at 3285 1/2 M St. NW… http://www.kickballersdc.com
