Wikipedia Description: New York Avenue–Florida Avenue–Gallaudet University (WMATA station)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
New York Ave–Florida Ave–Gallaudet U is an elevated, island platformed station on the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority's (WMATA) Metro system. It serves the Red Line, and is situated between Union Station and Rhode Island Avenue–Brentwood stations. New York Ave–Florida Ave–Gallaudet U is located near the intersection of New York Avenue and Florida Avenue in Northeast Washington, D.C.. The station is within the NoMa neighborhood, which is both residential and commercial, and the station itself is in a commercial district on Florida Avenue. The station opened on November 20, 2004, as both the system's first infill station and as the first to be built with a mix of public and private funds.
By 1996, the idea of a Metro station at New York Avenue was initially proposed as part of greater improvements of New York Avenue between Downtown Washington at the Maryland state line. In February 1999, the major property owners in the vicinity of the proposed station agreed in principle to contribute approximately $25 million in private financing for the project. The money would be collected from all commercial property owners within .5-mile (0.80 km) radius of the proposed station by being charged special tax assessments. With an estimated cost of $84 million to complete in October 2000, the federal government approved $25 million for its construction. The remaining costs would be split with $34 million coming from the District and $25 million coming from special tax assessments for the surrounding commercial properties. With funding secured, physical construction could commence.
The groundbreaking for the station occurred on December 16, 2000, with Washington mayor Anthony A. Williams and D.C.'s Congressional Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton present for the festivities. In May 2002, Metro awarded a design-build contract to the joint venture ...More...
Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.
2012 photos: Equipment this year: My mainstays were the Fuji S100fs, Nikon D7000, and the new Fuji X-S1. I also used an underwater Fuji XP50 and a Nikon D600. The first three cameras all broke this year and had to be repaired.
Trips this year: three Civil War Trust conferences (Shepherdstown, West Virginia; Richmond, Virginia; and Williamsburg, Virginia), a week-long family reunion cruise of the Caribbean, my annual two-week trip out west for the San Diego Comic-Con (plus side trips to Zion, Bryce, the Grand Canyon, etc), and a week-long family reunion in the Wisconsin Dells (with lots of in-transit time in Ohio and Indiana)..
Ego strokes: I had a picture of Miss DC, Ashley Boalch, published in the Washington Post. I had a photograph of the George Segal San Francisco Holocaust memorial used as the cover of Quebec Francais (issue 165). Not being able to read French, I'm not entirely sure what the article is about but, hey! And I guess what could be considered to be a positive thing, my site is now established enough that spammers have noticed it and I had to block 17,000 file description postings for Viagra and whatever else..
Number of photos taken this year: just below 410,000.
