Washington DC Streets: in transition

Old housing making way for new; and Mercedes Benz billboards.

Washington DC is constantly changing: something is going down, something is going up.

In the 1960s and 1970s, mostly it was stuff going down – since the early 1980s the place has been rebuilding and "gentrifying" much to many a persons chagrin. But it sure beats the wastelands of crime and poverty that once reigned over a great deal of the city. (Not to avoid the obvious : a lot of that crime is still present, and the lousy conditions exist yet in many places.) Washington DC in transition.
