Out at the Northeast end of Rhode Island Ave, near the District line, are the neighborhoods of Woodridge and Langdon. Along the Rhode Island Avenue corridor, businesses are growing again in the rows of storefronts between 20th and 24th St NE. A midway point between the development at Hyattsville and Rhode Island Row, the neighborhood is once again seeing new businesses arrive. A new coffeeshop, Zeke’s, is coming in at 2300 Rhode Island Ave, to join a Capoeira studio, a couple of storefront shops, and the Rita’s Italian Ice.
This Saturday, from noon to 4pm, Friends of Rhode Island Avenue, in concert with some local business sponsors, will be hosting Fall Fest along the Avenue, featuring performances from the Dance and Capoeira studios on the Avenue, as well as water ices from Rita’s, and Dance Place’s Step Team is also on the agenda for the festival. Weather looks pretty good for Saturday, so grab a Bikeshare (there’s a dock at 20th St NE) or drive on up to the festival. You can bus there from the Rhode Island Ave metro on the 83, 84 or T18 lines, all of which stop at 20th St NE.
See you at Fall Fest!
