Day 61

Burleith (November 7, 2019)

Burleith is a small neighborhood tucked in between Georgetown to the south and Glover Park to the north. We enjoyed walking its streets of colorful row houses.

Less colorful but just as beautiful, we liked this renovated duplex

and this stucco home

We came across this rather quirky place

And this tiny place

There were also a couple of vaguely scary homes

One house had a beautiful gourd vine

Burleith is also home to the Duke Ellington School of Arts, named after the legendary jazz bandleader and DC native. The school was established in 1974 and is dedicated to Arts education. It currently has approximately 500 high school students. Its academic disciplines include dance, literary media, museum studies, instrumental or vocal music, theater, technical design and production, and visual arts. It was recently completely renovated.
