On a recent walking meeting with @Lygeia , we met at the Kaiser Permanente Center for Total Health and she said, “let me show you H-Street.” We walked around the corner and found this neighborhood in transition. I have been reading about the rebuilding of H Street for some time, and more recently as part of the 43rd anniversary of the riots that destroyed Washington, DC.
You can see images of a neighborhood working to redefine itself below.
Ironically, another one of my photos was used in the most prominent DC local blog, DCist, to highlight the tension being created by the rebuilding of Washington (see:“Myopic Little Dog-Loving, Cafe-Dwelling Snowball Throwers”). I couldn’t help thinking as I walked this street with Lygeia that this neighborhood will one day enjoy dog parks, too.
