WASHINGTON DC - June, 8: Patrons explore the Recreation Pier at The District Wharf in the Southwest Waterfront neighborhood of Washington DC Friday, June 8, 2018.
The Wharf is DC's latest attempt to be a "real" city. It took multiple agencies and act of congress to get it built. Did they repeat the mistakes of urban renewal (which moved lower income people out of the neighborhood)? Yes and no. People will still be driven out, but this time around the neighborhood is integrated more.
