My spring semester writing class at American University has been dominated by a project in which I chose a location from S Street Rising by Ruben Castaneda. After Originally choosing the home on 1618 S Street I discovered it was part of a much greater DuPont area. I’ve scoured over cultural history, former residents of the home, as well as many of the locations close by. In conclusion, I was able to compile a project not just about my location, but the neighborhood as a whole.

To the right are links to each part of my project as well as additional information about the area.
