C & O Canal Georgetown

A study is now underway to reimagine a one-mile stretch of the Georgetown Canal.

Project goals include not only improving access to the canal for everyone, but also repairing some of the infrastructure. Designers also hope to preserve and highlight the canal’s historical significance while at the same time giving people a place to take a leisurely stroll.

Local leaders are soaring to potentially new heights in efforts to ease transportation woes from Georgetown to Rosslyn. One high-flying idea is to install a gondola high above the Potomac River, potentially significantly easing up on traffic along Key Bridge. It’s an idea that was first brought up three years ago but is now getting more careful consideration due to a feasibility study expected to be out this fall.

While some have brushed off the idea as being too far fetched, supporters entertain that gondolas have become more and more popular around the globe, less expensive and less time consuming than perhaps constructing another Metro station for commuters. They point to the number of buses, thousands of vehicles and heavy foot traffic as

Some of DC’s most recognizable landmarks are captured on film.  DC is no stranger to Hollywood movies.  The classical Revival-style Northumberland condos have been spotted in several movies: a 1987 film by Francis Ford Coppola in “Gardens of Stone” and in 1994, in Harrison Ford’s film, “Clear and Present Danger.”  The building was also the home for William Hurt’s character in the 1987 Oscar-winning film, “Broadcast News.”  Formerly the luxury Northumberland Apartments, the building was developed by one of DC’s premier real estate developers, Harry Wardman, who was responsible for constructing this building in 1909 on a diagonal avenue on New Hampshire Avenue NW between U and V Streets.
