Embassy Row


Embassy Row is the informal name for a street or area of a city where embassies or other diplomatic installations are concentrated.  The best-known of these is in Washington, D.C..  The area where the foreign Embassy’s are now congregated was considered Washington's premier residential address in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Massachusetts Avenue, in particular, became known for its numerous mansions housing the city's social and political elites. The title photo is of the Luxembourg Embassy.
