SoMo Rebranding “Stupid,” Says Adams Morgan BID Director

The Adams Morgan Main Street-backed rebranding of southern Adams Morgan as "SoMo" is entering its second month, and at least two people aren't fans: Adams Morgan BID Executive Director Kristen Barden and George Washington University real estate professor Christopher P.

Adams Morgan: We’re Not Lagging!

Earlier this week, George Washington University professor Christopher P. Leinberger included Adams Morgan on a list of D.C. area neighborhoods "lagging behind" others in a list for the Washington Post. And the Adams Morgan Partnership BID isn't happy about it.

South Adams Morgan Is “SoMo,” Apparently

Pity the businesses at Adams Morgan's southern end, built around the maddening Florida Avenue-U Street-18th Street intersection, far from Metro, and just a little too far from the rest of the area's nightlife. While the individual businesses in the sub-neighborhood can be good, put together they just aren't as fun as the rest of Adams [...]
