I consider the “single-member district” 6E01 the Heart of Shaw. Churches and schools, shops and restaurants, rowhouses and high-rise residential, parks and historical sites, clustered around majestically tree-lined Rhode Island Avenue, the Shaw Library, and our own Metrorail station.
What does this neighborhood mean to you? Download this blank map, draw on it — print and draw, or use an app — and email your “personal geography” to me at email@example.com. Let me know if I can share your map on line.
I took a tour of 6E01 on a hot summer day recently and took these pictures, illustrating the extent of the neighborhood.
