Is NYC Losing its Swagger to DC?

A recent NY Times article has sparked much discussion on how the current US political and economic situation has shifted much of the east coast focus from NYC to DC.  With the Obama family entering the White House, the Gov’t bailing out Wall St, and Hollywood coming east to document and participate, recently it seems that DC has jumped into the spotlight as the nation’s center.  Projects such as the National’s Stadium in SE, and the Target/Best Buy Complex in Columbia Heights have revitalized old neighborhoods while downtown has seen explosion of nightlife brought in by clubs like The Park, Fly Lounge and Shadow Room.  Culturally DC has seen much growth in the past 4 years, from the success of music acts like Wale, and Raheem Devaughn, to the additions of fashion boutiques like Commonwealth, Redeem, and Palace 5.  Additionally the success of entertainer Dave Chappelle, skater Bobby Worrest and ball player Kevin Durant have brought new exposure and coverage to the city.  There is a growing buzz  of city pride around Washington that hopefully will propel it to a global center of government, commerce and culture like never before.  

what do you think? have you noticed a growth in the dc scene? what do you think is causing it?

OG DC

Interesting how you guys never mention Major? The only store in DC that gets every Nike quickstrike release and done collaboration with adidas consortium, rogue status, etc. Are you that scared?

@ “OG” DC let’s answer your question with a question. are you that feeble-minded, or do you just not have any understanding of business specifically? that’s like k-mart advertising for walmart.
