Wikipedia Description: Mount Vernon Triangle
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mount Vernon Triangle is a neighborhood and community improvement district in the northwest quadrant of Washington, D.C. Originally a working-class neighborhood established in the 19th century, present-day Mount Vernon Triangle experienced a decline in the mid-20th century as it transitioned from residential to commercial and industrial use. The neighborhood has undergone significant and rapid redevelopment in the 21st century. It now consists mostly of high-rise condominium, apartment and office buildings. Several historic buildings in the neighborhood have been preserved and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Mount Vernon Triangle is now considered a good example of urban planning and a walkable neighborhood.
Mount Vernon Triangle, consisting of 17 blocks, is in Ward 6 and the 20001 ZIP code.

2020 photos: The year is too new to have anything to report. The Covid-19 pandemic cut off most events here in DC after March 11 and even cut off going outside after awhile. The only bright side about a pandemic which killed over a quarter of a million Americans is that the incompetence of the federal government in dealing with it probably flipped the election in November.
Partially Reviewed: Rough draft. I've gone through these pictures once, removing the worst ones, some duplication, etc. I usually take sequences of 4 or 5 pictures at a time and there are lots of near duplicates. I'll be doing a final review later which will cull the pictures down some. To be honest though, I'm way behind on doing final reviews.
