    Funny, there is no Nash Street nor Richmond St. North. Realtors really should learn the street naming routine for Arlington! Maybe they don’t know much about the community.

  • Ralph

    Wow, almost $1.3 million for a 1 bed room condo… in Rosslyn! Amazing.

  • Not sure what map you use @NorSou but it is North Nash according to Arlington County Taxes and Zoning. South Nash is located near Army Navy Dr.

    Steve, what NorSou means is that, in Arlington, North or South only come after the name of the street when it’s a numbered street. A direction before a street name indicates that it runs in two directions from a midpoint (Route 50, in our case) but intersects it. A direction after the street name means that it appears only on some side of that midline. In Arlington, named streets, like Nash or Richmond, run north-south, and so you put North or South in front of the name, i.e. it’s “South Richmond Street”, not “Richmond Street South”. Numbered streets, on the other hand, run east-west, and because numbered goes up both north and south from route 50, meaning you have potentially two first streets, two 26th streets, etc., so you say, “21st Street South” because there’s a 21st Street both in the north and the south, but they run east-west. If you said “South 21st Street”, it would mean that there’s only one 21st Street, and that it runs north-south. People mess this up a lot.

      I should also clarify and say that if there were some north-south running midline in Arlington, which we don’t have, those numbered streets would end up being something like East 23rd Street South on the east side of that line, and West 23rd St South on the west.

    • Buckingham Beauty

      Oh, and lest someone say I forgot to mention that the reason “1881 Nash Street” isn’t right: Nash is one of those that runs north-south, and it needs a North or South in front of Nash. Just like the numbering of the numbered streets, the numbering of street addresses goes up north and south from 50, so there’s an 1881 North Nash Street and (in theory) an 1881 South Nash Street. There’s not actually building numbered 1881 South Nash Street, because Nash dead ends at Army-Navy Drive, I think, the potential for it exists because they could, theoretically, continue the road past Army-Navy, across 395, and then into the golf course.

      And Army-Navy, by the way, is one of those roads that only runs on one side of our dividing line of 50, and there’s no separate Army-Navy north of 50, so it doesn’t need any directional indicator.

    Thanks BB for that explanation. I’ve lived in Arlington for 30+
    years and found it all very confusing.
