Then and Now: Sherman Avenue

Sherman Avenue 1949Then: Row Houses on Sherman Avenue between Columbia Road and Irving Streets, NW. Photographed May 15, 1949. (Photo, Historical Society of Washington, Wymer collection, WY 1023)

Sherman Avenue 2009Now: The same row, a little worse for wear, but still there. The corridor is more heavily traveled today and shows signs of neglect. It also appears that all of the mature trees are absent. According to Council member Graham, there is a strong possibility that the Sherman Ave. corridor may receive stimulus money this year for streetscaping. It will be interesting to see how this corridor appears a year from now.
