A Trendy Turn in Obama’s Town

Nytimes.com’s “A Trendy Turn in Obama’s Town” traces the revival of Washington D.C. due to Barack Obama’s presidency.  Long viewed as a stodgy, early-to-bed town, Washington over the past four years has become a mecca for young professionals who have been drawn to its blooming economy and its revitalized urban core. The February edition of Food & Wine magazine heralds the city’s “new food scene” for its “innovative restaurants,” and in September 2012, Forbes magazine included H Street Northeast, with its bars, music halls and restaurants, in its list of the nation’s 20 “best hipster neighborhoods.”

Dee Dee Myers, a former press secretary to President Bill Clinton, said “His (Obama) own sensibilities have intersected with the city’s changing sensibilities in a way that resonates with people.” Combined with a relatively strong economy, and waves of gentrification and investment, the nation’s capital has transformed into a younger and livelier city. To quote Marcus Samuelsson, the New York chef and restaurateur, “Washington is a really cool city to go to now.”
