Thanks to a reader for sending the word:
“My little street of carriage houses has been officially renamed Bloomingdale Court. These five houses are between U St NW & V St NW, and 1st St NW & 2nd St NW. Before the street name changed, our houses were addressed as “Rear 1st Street” or “Rear U Street”, which caused much confusion as you can imagine.
A few dedicated residents helped to write a bill that was put through by both the Council and Congress this past month. Street signs were put up this week.
Google maps, Mapquest, and various gps map systems are in the process of updating this change.”
Stay tuned for a spotlight on some the carriage houses later this week.
