The launch of the Living New Deal’s pocket map of New Deal Washington DC, planned for June, has been postponed due to the current epidemic. We will reschedule the launch with our partners at the Department of Interior and the Greenbelt Museum when that becomes possible again. Until then, we are working to complete the map and continue to improve our online database, which presently includes more than 380 New Deal sites in DC and many more in greater Washington. Like our New Deal maps of San Francisco and New York City, the Washington DC map will be of use to a wide array of visitors, tour guides, historians, teachers, students, and preservationists. The project has already attracted considerable interest around the nation’s capital, and a hard-working group of local volunteers is helping ensure its success.
