Wikipedia Description: Atlas District
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Atlas District (also known as the Atlas or the H Street District) is an arts and entertainment district located in the Near Northeast neighborhood of Washington, DC. It runs along the resurgent H Street Corridor from the outskirts of Union Station to the crossroads with Fifteenth Street, Bladensburg Road, and Florida Avenue. The name is not historical. It is part of a neighborhood branding campaign built around the revitalized Atlas Theater.
The area suffered economic setbacks after the riots following Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 1968 assassination. The neighborhood began a resurgence after Joe Englert announced plans in the late nineties to transform this three block area with various bars and music venues. Examples of bars that he opened were: the Pug; the Red and Black; the Rock N Roll Hotel; the Bee Hive; the Olympic, a sports bar with pool tables; Dr. Granville Moore's Brickyard; and the Showbar. Additionally, the area has benefited from the economic resurgence that has affected most of the district since the turn of the 21st century.
The area is served by the X2 Metrobus. The city is building a streetcar system running up H Street from Union Station to Benning Road that would pass through the Atlas district; the streetcar is expected to open in late 2013.
The Atlas Theater, the district’s namesake, was originally built in 1938. It was converted into the Atlas Performing Arts Center in 2001. The marquee and external appearance of the original movie theater were preserved, but the insides were completed replaced. The building now houses rehearsal and performance space for local performing arts groups, including the Capital City Symphony.

I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to email@example.com
