Thanks (again) for publishing one of my photographs, DC Policy Center (@DCPolicyCenter). It was taken in Ivy City, an area of Washington, DC undergoing tremendous change (like many areas of Washington, DC). As the chart in the article shows, an emerging area like this is mostly populated with bars, as opposed to more established neighborhoods, which have a greater proportion of restaurants.
Also noting the limited impact of relaxation of liquor license moratoriums, an oft-discussed situation in Washington.
It’s another great analysis and very much related to the social determinants of health. You can see the rest of my photographs from Ivy City below. They show what growth, innovation, pride looks like.
As D.C. nightlife grows, it’s becoming more of a bar town. Restaurants still dominate D.C. nightlife, but bars are quickly growing.
