Meyer, Eugene L. “Washington’s Shaw Neighborhood Is Remade for Young Urbanites.” The New York Times, The New York Times, 1 Dec. 2015, http://www.nytimes.com/2015/12/02/realestate/commercial/development-redefines-character-of-washingtons-shaw-area.html?_r=0.
This source describes how the Shaw neighborhood has been redone for the new, young tenants moving to these areas. Especially in the S street neighborhood, many glass-clad coffee shops and bars have popped up at former residences of black businesses. These places all have similar interiors and can give us a small look into what has changed and what has remained the same.

This article provides graphs and statistical information regarding business changes in the Shaw/S street area. It maps the influx of new business in the area since the early 1990s and what types of businesses arrived. The total number of businesses has been on a steady rise. The number of full service restaurants has actually fallen. The most notable is the massive increase in limited service business, especially from 2003 to 2004. This is most likely due to the rise of coffee shops, for young urban dwellers arriving in the area, replacing older businesses.
