Logan Circle

Originally known as Iowa Circle, the park now known as Logan Circle was renamed by Congress in 1930 in honor of John A. Logan,[6] a Civil War Army Commander and U.S. representative and senator for the state of Illinois, who lived at 4 Logan Circle.[7] At the center of the circle stands his equestrian statue. In the early 20th century, 14th Street NW rose to prominence as a main shopping district, particularly as an area for auto showrooms. Further north, "14th and U" became synonymous with a large African American community, later known as Shaw, encompassing parts of Logan Circle and U Street to the north. During this period, the original Victorian homes in the area were subdivided into apartments, hostels, and rooming houses. The end of segregation saw a period of middle class flight from the area, punctuated by the 1968 Washington, D.C. riots, which devastated the 14th Street commercial corridor.  During the 1980s and 1990s, Logan Circle was considered by many unsafe due to overt drug use and prostitution that existed in the neighborhood.[9][10] During this period, property values in the area increased, and it became a haven for theater companies.

During the 2000s, the area gentrified and housing costs sharply increased after derelict buildings were torn down or remodeled.[1] The commercial corridors along 14th Street and P Street underwent significant revitalization, and are now home to a variety of retailers, restaurants, art galleries, live theater, and nightlife venues such as Number Nine, a gay bar catering to the neighborhood's large LGBT population.[11][12][13][14][15] A watershed event in the development of the neighborhood was the opening of a Whole Foods Market two blocks from Logan Circle in December 2000, on a site previously occupied by an abandoned service garage; it is now one of the chain's highest grossing markets.[1][9][12]
