Thank you for using my photograph on this post, @DCist, about restaurants that have closed since the coronavirus pandemic can hit.
I couldn’t imagine that this scene, in 2020, would bring us closer to what this street looked like in 1968, rather than farther from it.
Below is an image of the same location in 2017, which was featured on the cover of Washingtonian magazine. (See: Thanks for Publishing my Photo on your cover, Washingtonian Magazine, April, 2018 “How 14th Street Came Back”)
Our lives can truly change overnight. Never get complacent.
Though the virus has devastated the restaurant industry, not all these businesses directly credit the pandemic for closing.
