Residents insist they don’t want charming, historic Anacostia to go the way of D.C. neighborhoods like H Street or Shaw, where an influx of new residents has raised the cost of living and driven some people out. But as new apartments and homes go up in Anacostia and people move into the area, there’s debate about what the community will look like going forward. We examine the challenges facing homeowners and renters there and their efforts to erase blight without driving out long-time residents.
