Invitation to
Marc Fisher of
The Washington Post
April 1, 2006
Marc;

Here's an assignment for you.

"South Capitol Street Frederick Douglass Mall"

Read the story at this blog: http://wwwsouthcapitolstreet.blogspot.com/

A Blog dedicated to the South Capitol/Frederick Douglass Mall (Promenade) that appears in the planning of the National Capital Planning Commission through the 1990s up through 2001, but which has been quietly dropped. Ostensibly this was to avoid eminent domain, which the authorities are nonetheless happy to use for the Nationals Stadium and its related development which DIRECTLY CONFLICTS -- and in practicality STOPS -- the South Capitol/Frederick Douglass Mall (Promenade).

Cheers!
