A Day In: Navy Yard

Navy Yard is the place to be these days. Since the inception of Nationals Park in 2008, this neighborhood has been on a meteoric rise, seeing an influx of trendy eateries and hotspots. Though many neighborhoods have seen their heyday come and go, Navy Yard is here to stay thanks to the businesses who’ve set up shop, and the many residential buildings that have been raised.
