Captain’s Row

Captain’s Row is the local name by which a one-block section of Prince Street near the Potomac River is known. It got the name because in Alexandria’s early days, many sea captains had homes here. The street is narrow and is one of the few left which has its original cobblestones.

    Lovely homes with brick and cobblestones. I could live there in a minute.

    Is this the picture that you have in your header?

    Photo, yes they are gorgeous and within walking distance to King Street, where there are a lot of shops and restaurants.

    Oya, it does look similar because of the brick, but the header picture is of a row of warehouses (now turned into restaurants) on King Street. The closest I can come to showing it to you is here.
