Pennsylvania Avenue map.jpg

Pennsylvania Avenue is a ruined neighborhood immediately to the east of what once was the White House.


This area is a constant battle between Lyons' Brotherhood of Steel and super mutants. Immediately behind the entrance to Metro Central is a Dot's Diner. To the west there is an manhole entrance to the metro sewer and further out is an alcove where a scavenger has set up shop with his dogs. In the far west Pennsylvania Avenue meets Executive Avenue. This area has been made into a Brotherhood encampment with an entrance to the utility tunnel which connects to the Presidential sub level and Presidential metro. South of this entrance is a small hotel where the Brotherhood of Steel has taken up residence.

Notable loot

  • Chinese Army: Special Ops Training Manual in the nearby hotel on a small table near the HAM radio. (Has to be stolen unless you have the Broken Steel add-on and you've completed Take it Back!.)
  • Tumblers Today in the Sewer by the ammunition stash (hidden in a broken out wall in south east dead-end tunnel).
  • At the scaffolding at corner of 17th and Pennsylvania, there is a dead merc on the side with the leaning/bent light pole (you must walk up the pole to reach the merc) with a note (Pennsylvania Ave explosives note) about planted mines and activation switch location. The switch is past the dead merc. When you activate the switch, all the explosives go off in a chain reaction in the street.


  • The streets in this neighborhood appear to have been mis-numbered in the game, as 17th Street is west of the White House. The street marked as 17th Street in the game should probably be 12th Street.
  • The White House Plaza is already in the main game but is not marked on your Pip-Boy until you have installed Broken Steel.
  • Next to Metro Central is "The Clarabella", a very large and unique building.


Pennsylvania Avenue appears only in Fallout 3.
