Housing Complex

The Housing Complex Best Of

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:

Love that cycletrack. (Darrow Montgomery)

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

Disagree? Tough shit. Start your own newspaper.

    Best stupid use of TAX PAYER FUNDS, the bike lanes on 15Th Street, NW! Ask any resident along 15Th Street that question when it snows!
