After multiple protests, particularly by Howard University students in the 1880s, the fences were torn down and the neighborhood became more diverse.
In the 1940s it was known as a central location for African-American elites to live and today is one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the city. Murals throughout the community depict its history. With a beautiful historic district, close proximity to the Shaw-Howard University Metro Station, and a number of D.C.’s hottest neighborhoods including Bloomingdale, Shaw and Eckington; LeDroit Park homes for sale have strong appeal for discerning home buyers looking for an exclusive residence.

The neighborhood is very invested in its community- when the Gage-Eckington Elementary School closed; residents lobbied for the city to tear it down and convert it into a park, which opened in 2011 as The Park at LeDroit. The park contains a playground, exercise equipment, a dog park, and the Common Good City Farm, an urban agriculture education center and community garden. Recently, the owners of Vinoteca wine bar opened the Royal, a new restaurant which serves as a coffee shop during the day and a cocktail bar at night.
