North Cleveland Park

Orientation & Geography

North Cleveland Park is a neighborhood in the Northwest quadrant of Washington, D.C. It's home to the Van Ness campus of the University of the District of Columbia and the headquarters of Intelsat, a major employer in the area. North Cleveland Park is bounded by Albemarle Street NW to the north, Tilden and Upton Streets NW to the south, Wisconsin and Nebraska Avenues NW to the west, and Connecticut Avenue to the east. It is served by the Van Ness-UDC station on the Washington Metro's Red Line (Washington Metro), and is therefore — like the adjacent Forest Hills neighborhood — frequently (but mistakenly) referred to as Van Ness. North Cleveland Park is home to several embassies, including those of Austria, Bangladesh, Bahrain, Brunei, China, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Honduras, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Malaysia, Morocco (future site), Nigeria, Pakistan, Singapore, Slovakia, and the U.A.E. North Cleveland Park should also not be confused with the neighboring Cleveland Park community to its south; although both are part of the original tract of land on which Grover Cleveland built his summer estate in the 1880s, they are two separate neighborhoods.
