A thriv­ing busi­ness dis­trict

The Washington Post Sunday - - OPINION SUNDAY -

The July 15 Metro ar­ti­cle “Pur­ple Line high­lights 2 coun­ties’ dis­par­i­ties” in­ac­cu­rately por­trayed the Kenilworth Av­enue busi­ness dis­trict. Although it is true that the Gi­ant gro­cery left, the ar­ti­cle ne­glected to men­tion that the space was quickly re­placed by a bet­ter gro­cery, La Grande. And although you will not find a Brooks Broth­ers or Tif­fany & Co. along the strip, nei­ther will you find va­cant store­fronts. Kenilworth is a thriv­ing busi­ness dis­trict with dol­lar stores, restau­rants, gas sta­tions and other stores that serve the com­mu­nity well. And the area is not bereft of public trans­porta­tion. The Col­lege Park Metro sta­tion is less than 10 min­utes away by car.
