The southern portion of the Washington Navy Yard, as viewed from across the Anacostia River. (11/06)
The Navy Yard's Latrobe Gate, at 8th and M; the original gate was built in 1805-06, with the three-story late-Victorian building constructed over and around it completed in 1881. (10/05)
The entrance gate at M and Isaac Hull Avenue. The two red brick buildings and the parking lot at right are actually The Yards/Southeast Federal Center property; the buildings at left are within the Navy Yard. (10/05)
A plaza along the Anacostia River, looking northeast in April 2004. This area is now incorporated into the Anacostia Riverwalk, and it has become fenced off from direct access to the Navy Yard. (04/04)
A different angle but the same section of the Riverwalk, eight years later, showing the fence installed on the west side of the path, along with the Display Ship Barry. (2/26/12)
A remnant spot from the days when ships were built and maintained at the Navy Yard. (2/26/12)
Displays along the riverwalk. (2/26/12)
The Display Ship Barry, which is open to visitors. Also visible at right is Nationals Park.
The eastern end of the Navy Yard's portion of the Anacostia Riverwalk, as it heads toward its exit at 11th Street. The old outbound 11th Street Bridge is visible, for now. (2/26/12)

The Navy Yard's portion of the Anacostia Riverwalk was finished long before other sections, such as the boardwalk at the Yards Park. The top photo shows the view into what was then the Southeast Federal Center in April 2004; the bottom photo, in February 2012, reflects how things have changed in eight years. (2/26/12)
For a long time, the eastern entrance to the Navy Yard's Riverwalk was not particularly welcoming. (11/05)
But the stretch is now open 24/7, except for periodic closures when needed by the Navy. (2/26/12)
The entrance at 11th and N Streets. (10/05)
Another view north on Hull. (04/04)
Looking north on Hull from within the Navy Yard. The is the northwestern boundary of the Navy Yard--the buildigns and land to the left, past the fence, are on The Yards/Southeast Federal Center property. (04/04)
Hull Avenue, south from the entrance gate to the Anacostia River. (04/04)
The northeast corner of the Navy Yard, at 11th and M Streets, just west of the 11th Street Bridge. (10/05)
M Street just west of 11th Street, with some of the older Navy Yard buildings just inside the fence. (10/03)
