Map of Washington, D.C., with Penn Branch highlighted in red
Penn Branch is a neighborhood in Southeast Washington, D.C., east of the Anacostia River. It is bounded by Pennsylvania Avenue SE to the south; Pope Branch Park and Pope Creek to the north; Branch Avenue to the west; and Fort Davis Park to the east. While the neighborhood technically lies within the boundaries of the larger Dupont Park, all of it is now commonly referred to as 'Penn Branch', taking its name from its location at the intersection of two major thoroughfares, Pennsylvania and Branch Avenues. At the neighborhood's Pennsylvania Avenue gateway, a sign reads, "Penn Branch - A Community On The Move".
Also at that intersection is a shopping center by the name of Penn Branch Center, scheduled to undergo major renovations in the Fall of 2009.
