Neglinnaya Street

Neglinnaya Street (until 1922 – Neglinny Proyezd) is a street in the Central Administrative District of Moscow. It runs from Teatralny Proezd to Trubnaya Square. The numbering of houses is conducted from the Teatralny proezd.

Until 1922, the street was called Neglinny proezd, along the Neglinnaya River, on the line of the new channel of which the street was formed in the 19th century.

The direction of the river determines the contour of Neglinnaya Street. The street consists of two parts. On the section from Theater Passage to Rakhmanovsky Lane, the street runs from south to north with a slight deviation to the west; from Rakhmanovsky Lane, the street, following the riverbed, bends to the northeast and expands sharply.

From this place in the middle of the street, green spaces turn the second part of Neglinnaya Street into a boulevard.

In 1818-1819, a three-kilometer section of the Neglinnaya in its lower part was enclosed in an underground pipe (hence the name Trubnaya Square).

Until 1974, during floods, the Neglinnaya River regularly broke out of an underground pipe. It flooded the basements of neighboring houses and even the street itself. In 1974-1975, work was conducted to expand the underground collector, after which the floods stopped.
