The Fan is a district in Richmond, Virginia. It is named The Fan because of the way the roads fan out to the west from N. Belvidere St. It's easy to find a variety of boundaries that "define" the Fan, just ask a variety of Richmonders. Everyone will have a slightly different mental map. But roughly speaking, the Fan District is bounded on the east by Belvidere St (U.S. Route 1), on the west by The Boulevard, on the North by Broad Street, and on the South by Cary Street. The Fan itself is bordered on the west by the Museum District/Carytown, on the South by the Byrd Park, Randolph, and Oregon Hill neighborhoods, and on the North by the Carver neighborhood.
