Slaving away at City Paper pays off this time of year, when you’re able to select a handful of your favorite parts of D.C. and unilaterally declare them the Best of some totally made-up category. Here’s where you can find picks that fall in the Housing Complex world, most by me, some by others:
Best Bike Lane: The 15th Street Cycletrack
Best New Public Space: Yards Park
Best Neighborhood Achievement: Crispus Attucks Park
Best Wheatpaste: This One
Best Sign Georgia Avenue Retail is Hurting: The Joyous Reception to CVS’ Opening
Best Museum That Doesn’t Exist Yet: National Museum of the American People
Best Pedestrian Safety Improvement: Leading Pedestrian Intervals
Best Suburban Fake Downtown: Bethesda
Best Way to Pretend You Don’t Live in the U.S.: Capital Bikeshare
Best Circle That Should be a Rectangle: Scott Circle
Best Side Effect to Road Construction: Beach Drive as Bike Highway
