Homes designed by famous architects
Deanwood is in the far reaches of NE DC. The streets are worth visiting. Sure, Marvin Gaye grew up here, but that is not why you should visit. The homes were designed by two of the most prominent African American architects. W. Sidney Pittman and Howard Woodson were two of the many men that created these homes. Pittman was married to the daughter of Booker T Washington and was also the designer of the 12th St YMCA. Woodson's reputation in the city was recognized and Woodson High School was named after him. A drive through to admire the work is great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
