Unlike other neighborhoods in Washington DC, Adams Morgan is not named after a traffic circle or nearby landmark, but instead from a school district. When the areas two school districts combined in 1958, and new boundaries were drawn, the area began being referred to as Adams Morgan. It was not until 2010 that the neighborhood really began picking up steam and it was at this time that the18th St NW corridor was reconstructed and many new businesses began to emerge.
Adams Morgan is another DC neighborhood that is not accessible by the Metrorail, however there are many other options for getting around. Within walking distance commuters will find two metro stations, Woodley Park, which services the red line and Columbia Heights, which services the Green and Yellow line. Metrobus lines 42, 43, 90, 92, 93, 96 and L2 reach the area as well and, as of 2009, the DC Circulator also runs through the neighborhood. In 2010 all of the bike lanes were widened and Capital Bikeshare began to run in the neighborhood as well. Those looking to drive to the area should do so during the day when street parking is much more available rather than at night when it can be very scarce.
