A New Downtown Station For DC's Metro System
Bringing a mass transit rail stop to DCs "NoMa" North of Massachusetts neighborhood, halfway between the Union Station and Rhode Island Avenue stops, offers fresh opportunity for urban renewal in a long-neglected area. Roger Lewis notes that the public-private effort to open the New York Avenue-Florida Avenue-Gallaudet University Metro station demonstrates how "transit can effectively spur real estate development and urban revitalization" and be a profitable investment.
