21st & Q Streets, NW

The Dupont area, first developed as a suburban residential neighborhood close to downtown Washington, is a nucleus for public interest organizations, law firms and galleries. Skirted by embassies, the Rock Creek Park thoroughfare and the shallow, nine-storied canyons of downtown, Dupont has a distinct neighborhood feel.
