WEBSITES AND ADDITIONAL RESOURCES
Navy Yard, also known as Near Southeast, is a neighborhood on the Anacostia River in Southeast Washington, D.C. Navy Yard is bounded by Interstate 695 to the north and east, South Capitol Street to the west, and the Anacostia River to the south. Approximately half of its area (south of M Street, SE) is occupied by the Washington Navy Yard (including the Naval Historical Center), which gives the neighborhood its name. It is served by the Navy Yard – Ballpark Metro station on the Green Line.
Long an industrial district, the neighborhood has undergone transformation since the 1990s. The construction of the U.S. Department of Transportation office complex and Nationals Park, the 2008 $600 million stadium of the Washington Nationals Major League Baseball team, have stimulated growth in the neighborhood. Most of the neighborhood’s land and businesses have been purchased by companies and is currently being developed into commercial and residential projects.
