    Makes Barry's corruption and misappropriations seem like small potatoes eh? The deep red in wards 7 and 8 is the real scandal.

  • http://twitter.com/anc7c04 Deanwoodenizen

    Uhh, no, ArlingtonAaron. It makes CM Barry's misappropriations that more glaring. With his know-how, relationships, etc. he could have championed efforts to stem foreclosures, leverage the four W7&8 CMs (w/two in powerful positions), or just plain build capacity of residents and organizations to help them.

  • ArlingtonAaron

    That's what I'm saying Deanwoodenizen: as far as I'm concerned he could walk out of the Wilson Building every day with a suitcase full of cash, as long as long as he did half of that stuff. Don't fire him because he's a thief, fire him because his lack of real political leadership is a monumental tragedy.

  • John Mitchell

    What's with the white blocks? They aren't all federal reservations, are they?

  • http://www.washingtoncitypaper.com Mike DeBonis

    The white areas are mostly public property. East of the reiver you have Blue Plains, Bolling AFB, St. E's and Poplar Point. Across the Anacostia is Navy Yard, DC General/Res 13, RFK, Natl Arboretum, rail yards, etc. Further west of course is Rock Creek Park and Battery Kemble Park.

    Um, this is NOT a map of how property values have changed, it's a map of how the tax-assessed values have changed - definitely not the same thing.

    The blue areas map where city officials think people can afford to pay more taxes and the red areas where they think they can't. I think this is just a political map.

  • liz

    what's also interesting are the neighborhoods that bring in over $1 billion for the city.... wasn't expecting Deanwood or Petworth, and am a little surprised at 16th st heights...

  • http://rickmangus@aol.com Rick Mangus

    Well by the map, (Red Zones) you can see who pays taxes and who doesn't! Give SE east of the river back to Maryland! They don't pay taxes, they take more and give nothing back to city development. They have the highest crime rate. They have the lowest school test scores. Oh! and another reason they love Marion Barry aka (Crackatoa)!

  • http://deleted candycane1

    This map is a clear indication of the areas that have been targeted for further gentrification. Interesting.

    @ Rick Mangus - the red zones in fact highlight what we have been complaining about all along. The city sends most of it's non-profit programs and buildings (St. Elizabeth's for example) to River East and they don't pay any taxes!!!! When you have nine group homes on the same street - we do and the Saint Elizabeths campus across the street - we do and shelters and drug rehabs on almost every corner - we do and a bunch of federal land - we do. NO ONE IS PAYING TAXES INTO THE COMMUNITY! And by that we mean the goverment and the non-profits they stick over here.

    So please don't blame us the homeowners who are paying our taxes. We are struggling against the attitude and actions of the city goverment that East of the River - in particular is the back yard and spare closet of the entire city. Who wants to buy a house sandwiched between two 50 unit group homes - which by the way they are doing in my neighborhood?

    It makes no sense.The land is cheap and only gets cheaper with this attitude.

  • Patience

    I know that there aren't a lot of people living downtown, but I'm rather surprised that area #10-- "Central"-- which seems to include everything in the area bounded by North Capitol Street, Mass. Ave., Rock Creek Park, and Pennsylvania Ave., and includes pretty pricey neighborhoods (for renters, at least) like East Dupont and Penn Quarter-- seems to be valued at barely $200,000,000. Does this have to do with the way taxes are assessed for condos as opposed to houses? Does the city also release data on the number of units used to calculate these aggregate assessments by neighborhood (which would show the average assessment per unit)?
