Greater Greater Washington

Look at those streetcars

Photo of 1934 Adams Morgan, from DC Metrocentric:

With the exception of the streetcar tracks, almost nothing in that photo has changed in 74 years.

David Alpert is the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Greater Greater Washington and Greater Greater Education. He worked as a Product Manager for Google for six years and has lived in the Boston, San Francisco, and New York metro areas in addition to Washington, DC. He loves the area which is, in many ways, greater than those others, and wants to see it become even greater.

Yeah if it were not for those streetcars in the photo, it could have been taken today! I can think of many other corners in the city that have reamained unchanged for so long!
