A new map for the Washington Metro

Five post-midnight hours well spent, I hope. If you live in the D.C. area, feel free to print this map out and give it a spin!

*Eastern Core Reference Map Recommended)

This map of a chunk of DC not only gives the user a coordinate grid and street-level detail, but includes places of interest such as restaurants, shopping areas, Churches, memorials, museums, etc. If you live in the Washington area, try printing it out and walking around with it. It also helps if you have a GPS; many of the locations can be found both by coordinate and by grid. (The area itself is just north of the eastern end of the Mall.)

Washington’s Granite District

Somewhere in between K street and Dupont Circle, a lobbyist is counting his twenties. Welcome to the Granite District of D.C., where stately gray towers rub elbows with “chic” cafes and the occasional bookstore. People seem to come here for the money more than they do for the sights, but don’t let that deter you.

Washington, DC–Western Core

This is not a fictional city, but rather Washington, DC–a shining example of politics and gentrification alike. This (realistic) map depicts the area right above the Mall and just east of the White House. Great place to visit!
P.S: If you want a way to waste a rainy afternoon, drawing a map with geographic coordinates as a grid is a GREAT way to do it. Just make sure you’re ready to stay up past 3 in the morning.

Washington, DC–Eastern Core

Here’s what I like to call the “Eastern Core–” the very southeastern edge of Northwest DC, not counting the mall. (We’re talking about Washington, DC here.) I drew the map around geographic coordinates, so you can locate things pretty easily if you’ve got a GPS handy. 🙂

Washington, DC–Southern Northwest

This is more of an overview map than the others, but it gives a (ziemlich) accurate depiction of the Dupont Circle area. The relief is part of my Washington, DC mapping project. (No, it’s not part of Albeit. 🙂 )

Potomac Northwest–Washington, DC

This is yet another map in my series of Washington, DC maps. It depicts the Southwestern portion of NW, encompassing the Eclipse, Kennedy Center and (of course) the White House. If you’re in the area, print it out, wander around and tell me how it works!
