August 2010 | Metro Man: Are you Lost?
My first visit to Anacostia began with Metro delays [.surprise.], an “I can’t believe you convinced me to come with you” look on my friend’s face, and a concerned station manager. The end of this visit, as you may have already guessed, was markedly different. If one word could describe me then, it would be: challenged.
Challenged by a neighborhood, enduring. / Challenged to care, and contribute. / Challenged to defy stereotypes, on both sides of the river. / Challenged to renovate.
