Red Line riders tuckered out by hiking across the Duke Ellington Bridge now have cartographic evidence of their frustration. In a newly published guide to “areas served by the Washington, D.C. Metrorail system,” sold on Metro’s Web site, Adams Morgan is absent from the area surrounding the Woodley Park-Zoo/Adams Morgan stop. Larry Bowring, owner of the map’s publishing company, StationMasters, says the maps extend one-third of a mile away from each stop”comfortable walking distance for most people.” Ward 1 Councilmember Jim Graham, who led the 1999 campaign to name-check Adams Morgan in the stop formerly known as Woodley Park-Zoo, says 18th Street NW isn’t too far away. The point of the name, Graham says, “is to show Adams Morgan as a destination. Tourists who want to visit our neighborhood are able to realize that there is a nearby Metro destination.” Josh Levin
