In Hidden Places, UrbanTurf takes a look at some of the charming but lesser-known one- and two-block streets in the District. This week, we head over to Riggs Street NW, a quiet block in Logan Circle.
Riggs Street is located between 13th and 14th Streets NW
Between the busy avenues of 13th and 14th Street sits Riggs Street NW (map) – a quiet one-block stretch so unassuming that there’s no stoplight or traffic signal to turn onto it from either of the major streets to the east and west.
The rowhouses of Riggs Street.
The block is lined with three-story rowhouses and tall gingko trees. On the western side of the block sit the Frontier Condominiums, a series of plain, brick rowhomes that were sold for about $150,000 apiece back in the late 1990s and made headlines a few years ago when developers offered the owners about sevenfold what they paid to sell.
More photos below.
