The flagship Apple store in Shanghai, China.

The Carnegie Library in downtown D.C. was once home to a short-lived museum on local history. But the museum struggled to attract visitors and in the decade since its closure, the library’s challenge of drawing in public has proved difficult. The space still houses the Historical Society of D.C., but is currently used as a private events space. Now, Apple is in negotiations to turn that space into a flagship store. We discuss the possibility of change in the square.

Guests

  • John Suau Executive Director, Historical Society of Washington, D.C.
  • Max Brown Chairman, Events DC
