My final project for school! A bustling nightlife scene has sprung up along the H Street corridor since the city began an effort to revitalize it in 2005. A few businesses that survived the 1968 riots have stayed the same while new restaurants and bars have been moving in. This process of gentrification has led to tensions with some previous residents who feel that they are becoming less welcome as the neighborhood changes and are worried about being priced out. I found happy but tired people who were more than willing to share their stories.
