A 1.4-acre plot of land east of downtown Takoma Park has long been eyed for development. While a neighborhood food co-op has sat on part of it for 20 years, a new plan to redevelop the space envisions restaurants, cafes, a parking garage and office space.
The Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum on the National Mall tops many tourists’ must-see list. But for true aviation buffs, some of the most exciting exhibits in this world-class collection lie 30 miles away, in Chantilly, Va. The Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center opened in 2003 in a massive complex built from three airplane hangars. It houses thousands of space and aviation artifacts — from the Space Shuttle Discovery to the Enola Gay bomber. The museum’s chief curator joins us to examine the collections and the restorations taking place behind the scenes.
