As the title of the post implies, this is Meridian Hill Park. It is located in Washington D.C. between 16th and 15th streets nw. Many years ago I used to live across the street from here. Back then, for reasons unknown, people called this place Malcom X Park. Drug dealers ran this place from top to bottom and crime was rampant. The fountains didn’t work as well as many of the lights at night. Fast forward a couple of decades and the park has been added to the National Park Registry. People of all ages, shapes, and flavors come here to unwind, and all of the fountains actually work. The dealers are gone, and crime is the last thing that one has to worry about here. It’s funny what a city can do if it put’s it’s mind to it.
