Thanks for publishing my photograph, @DCPolicyCenter (with syndication to @ggwash – thank you also).

It was taken in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington, DC (of course), which I say is undergoing its third destruction – first after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., second after the drug epidemic, and the current one, referred to by some as the gilded ghetto (See: Thoughts and photos from the gilded ghetto | Race, Class, and Politics in the Cappuccino City, by Derek Hyra)

Construction and fire codes ensure that a new building won’t be the seed of a 19th-century-style urban conflagration. Inclusionary zoning ensures that at least some space will be set aside for economically-excluded residents. And now, a new suite of requirements will ensure that new buildings improve the walkability of the neighborhoods that surround them.
