In 2009, a city-wide effort to make D.C. more walkable divided a quaint corner in Northwest D.C. At the time, the Hawthorne neighborhood on the border between the District and Maryland fought — and won — the right to decide whether they wanted to install sidewalks on a block-by-block basis. The walkways, many argued, would displace the trees that give the neighborhood its character, and not be the appropriate way to address to pedestrian safety. Seven years later, the debate is resurfacing, calling into question the line between public and private land. We examine the issues up for debate.
