Looking at Boathouse Row from across the Anacostia River. (12/08)
The Anacostia Community Boathouse Association boathouse, which once sat on the banks of the Anacostia between the spans of the 11th Street Bridges, seen during the second Youth River Sports Day. (8/23/08)
A second structure sat nearby, and the Association had received a $300,000 restoration grant. However, both buildings were demolished in 2010 to make way for the new 11th Street Bridges. (11/05)
A late-fall view of the upstream pier at the old Community Boathouse, in 2005. (11/05)
The old entrance to the boathouses and docks, from O Street, in 2005. (11/05)
A peek inside the boathouse. (8/23/08)
East of 12th Street and south of Water Street are some District DPW facilities. (10/05)
If 13th Street were to be drawn through to the Anacostia River, it would arrive at the waterfront approximately here, which as of now is just an open parking area with access to the water. (10/05)
This portion of Water Street, heading east toward M, can surprise visitors with the overgrowth, so close to the riverfront. (8/23/08)
The entrance to the Eastern Power Boat Club, at 1301 Water Street. (8/23/08)
The District Yacht Club, at 1409 Water Street. (8/23/08)
The entrance to the Washington Yacht Club, just before Water runs into M Street. (8/23/08)
The intersection of Water and M streets, with a National Park Service sign pointing visitors to the various marinas. (8/23/08)
Along the stretch of M Street between Water Street and the Sousa Bridge, work is underway on the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail. (8/23/08)
If you continue along M Street, eventually you get to Pennsylvania Avenue's Sousa Bridge; this road continues east/northeast, but the bridge marks the easternmost boundary of Near Southeast. (8/23/08)
Turning around under the Sousa Bridge to see the view when arriving in Near Southeast along M. (8/23/08)
