“Adopt-a-block” sign on 5th & O St intersection

When I saw this sign I saw it as a political statement from the Mayor’s office. Shaw is one of the most profitable neighborhoods in the D.C. area, there are dozens of houses either being built or on the market that go for at a minimum around 1.2 million dollars. The individuals that are moving into 5th & O among other streets in the Shaw Area are looking for a certain modern, clean feel. The Government of District of Columbia knows good and well that there needs the only way to attract such “prospective residents” is to upkeep the New Shaw.
