Thanks for publishing my photos @bisnow, in this article on one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in Washington, DC right now.
The piece covers ground that has been detailed in Derek Hyra’s @DerekHyra book (see: Thoughts and photos from the gilded ghetto | Race, Class, and Politics in the Cappuccino City, by Derek Hyra)
I think the photos speak for themselves. The future is constantly being born here.
Shaw and U Street’s high-end new construction is stimulating the local economy, but compromising their rich cultural history and displacing longtime residents.
