Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

The New K-Young's Deli

The New K-Young's Deli

(The sign on the building has a different phone number and the addition of a "K-" before Young's.)

Young's Deli in Florida Market closed last month, and I lamented this greatly, because there isn't a place for quality and relatively inexpensive Korean food in the greater area (there is another cafeteria in the Florida Market that sells Korean food, but I don't think the food is as good--cheaper, but less food, and not as well presented or as tasty).

Yesterday, while taking a journalist around some of the warehouse areas in Northeast DC, including the market, we happened upon the "grand" opening of "K-"Young's deli.
Food at K Young's
The food looked great, but we had already eaten. I hope to get there later today. Note that they close at 2 pm (Young's stayed open til 4 pm) but they open at 5:30 am.
The prices are a bit higher at K-Young'sThe prices are a bit higher at K-Young's.
