More Than a Place For The White House

Garance Franke-Ruta’s essay in The Atlantic about the recent history of gentrification and “urban comeback” in Washington, D.C. is super interesting. It’s such a weird city to visit, and, as Franke-Ruta explains, its neighborhoods of revitalization and decay are so intertwined with historical events and policy. Later in the essay, she explores her own neighborhood, the U-Street area—a must-read for anyone who has been to the city and never made it past The Mall.
