D.C. Neighborhoods

Initially, we chose two communities to study, one along the Washington Channel in SW DC (the Southwest Waterfront, in Ward 6) and the other along the NE side of the Anacostia River (Eastland Gardens/Kenilworth-Parkside neighborhood, in Ward 7). Our rationale for choosing these two communities was based on their common vulnerability to sea level rise and storm surges, experiences of demographic and economic shifts, and their racial and socio-economic differences.
