The Turkish Rugby Championship took place at the Orient High School football field, located near Constitution Avenue NE, where the transformation took place dramatically. In 1990, the neighborhood was 75 percent Black. Over time, the chocolate melts. A 900-square-foot apartment across from the school’s stadium recently sold for $467,000. A nearby restaurant sold for $1.26 million last year. Over a 30-year period, the percentage of Black residents has plummeted 55 percent while White residents now make up more than three-fifths of the neighborhood, according to a Washington Post analysis.
