The New and Improved Washington Boulevard

I am ecstatic about the results of Washington Boulevard’s recent makeover, which was recently completed. The red monkey bars are long gone, and so is the majority of the dirt and rubble that littered the area’s landscape all of last year and half of this one.

What we now have is a superb rendition of the original 1920s street design, which includes a grassy median, large flower-boxes that are embedded in the sidewalks, and tall lighting fixtures that bring character and visibility onto the once dark street.

If you haven’t been over to Washington in a while, I suggest going to check it out. But, be prepared – the change is so significant, you may not even recognize it as the old Washington Boulevard. And, while you’re there, head over to Bookies’ new outdoor patio, which opened up a few weeks ago.

    I’ve had an office at the Book Building for the past few months, and I can’t even start to tell you how amazing this transformation has been. It’s quite astonishing.

    Now, keep going.

    Start with the schools.
