Building Blocks

The 1100 block of Good Hope Road, in the heart of Anacostia, is a scarred piece of land. A broken clock hangs above the entrance of a boarded-up liquor store. Weeds and graffiti have overtaken the dilapidated row houses next door. Around the corner, barbed wire and a chain-link fence protect a hodgepodge of vehicles at a small construction company. But this rundown tract is also being watched as one measure of whether a hoped-for revival of Anacostia is finally taking root -- something D.C. officials insist will follow from the proposed new baseball stadium in Southeast, development of the Anacostia River waterfront, and construction of a new building for the D.C.
