“New Market” Update: NeMa is LOCAL? CULTURE? AUTHENTIC? Nope! Plus a List of All the NeMA Hot Spots

Moving on…

Now, as promised, here’s the list of local, authentic, cultural hotspots of the NeMa area. It’s a short list. Just one entry, actually.

Wednesday, August 15th, 2012

I thought you all were on top of this sitch.

What’s your long-term plan, DPR? Oh, I know, give you all more money. But if that’s not going to happen, what if we just take this whole statue thing out? Would you like that DPR?

Well, It Appears That Rec and Park is Getting the Upper Hand Against Graffiti on the McKinley Statue

It goes back and forth, but lately, RPD has been in the game.
