Corner of MLK and Good Hope, with a reception at Anacostia Gateway and a Cephas & Wiggins concert ($20) at the Honfleur Gallery at 7:30 (all on the same block).What:
from the MSA press release - Main Street Anacostia was able to have the new sign built and installed with a storefront improvement grant from the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development's Neighborhood Investment Funds. DC's own Gelberg Signs built the new sign.See you there!
The initial plan was to have the original sign refurbished, however the old sign was in such disrepair that it crumbled during transport.
"This is truly a great day in Anacostia. It's a real symbol that we are building a vibrant and exciting business corridor," says Main Street Anacostia Board Chair Max Salas.
