Southwest Heritage Trail

This was such a lovely walk a few days ago on a perfect November morning.  I'd never really been to this part of DC and it was completely fascinating. I had no idea that this was the original urban renewal site and that the original Supreme Court case regarding urban redevelopment started here. This will definitely be part of our class next spring.

Part of the trail isn't doable right now because of the waterfront construction.  Water Street is closed so you can't go to stops 9-12 which makes it hard to do this as a loop.  I was able to work it out and not get lost, but it needs to be updated because it looked like those Water Street stops wouldn't be accessible at all in the future.  That didn't ruin a very nice morning though.
