The Living New Deal has just published a map and guide to the work of the New Deal in Washington, D.C. The map includes 500 New Deal sites in the District alone, highlighting 34 notable sites. There is an inset map of the area around the National Mall which can be used for self-guided walking tours.

This project has been funded in part by a grant from the Dorothea de Schweinitz Fund for the District of Columbia of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
