Big Bear Cafe in Bloomingdale
Three zip codes in DC showed up on a list ranking the fastest “whitening” neighborhoods in the United States, with 20001 taking the second highest rank.
Michael Petrilli from the Thomas Fordham Institute raked through Census data to find areas that have seen the biggest increase in the percentage of white residents between 2000 and 2010. (He discusses the changes as gentrification, although that is related to income, not race.)
UrbanTurf pulled out the DC-specific information from the chart. We also calculated the percent increase in the proportion of white residents:
When ranked according to percent increase, which the author does not do, 20001 has the second highest percent increase, with Chattanooga, TN taking the top spot. The numbers for 20001 are staggering: the proportion of white residents in that area has increased almost sixfold.
20001 encompasses a large swath of land east of 11th Street NW including Shaw, Bloomingdale and Mount Vernon Square, 20010 is Mount Pleasant and Columbia Heights, and 20005 covers Logan Circle and the area just south of it.
