About Foggy bottom
Foggy Bottom is located just west of the heart of downtown Washington, DC and is often overlooked as one of D.C.'s oldest and most historical neighborhoods. Crafted in the early nineteenth century, Foggy Bottom first emerged as a community for blue collar workers to live who were employed by the glass, brewery, and city gas industry during the midst of the Industrial Revolution. Hence the name of the neighborhood was coined from the large amounts of fog produced by the local factories in the neighborhood.
Today, Foggy Bottom has transformed into an ideal rental community for the first time renter and history buff intrigued by traditional treasures of Washington, D.C. Foggy Bottom is known for the countless variety of mid-rise apartment buildings in the area all in close proximity to the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Washington Monument, and World War II Memorial along Constitution Avenue. As a center for arts and culture, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts boasts Foggy Bottom as its home. In addition to the Kennedy Center, the Foggy Bottom neighborhood also contains the notorious Watergate Hotel and the main campus of the George Washington University.
Foggy Bottom is also bordering the popular neighborhood of Georgetown where one can find all the shopping, restaurants, and bars they could want.
Foggy Bottom is a tempting neighborhood to explore and live in and can provide the classic DC living experience with a large reserve of properties to rent or buy. As a member of the prestigious National Register of Historic Places, Foggy Bottom is where one should go to live amongst the dead.
