Sunrise over Union Market. Washington DC. Fall, 2011.

Since the 1930s, Union Market has served its customers faithfully through the changing political, economic, and social climates of Washington DC. The rich history of this market is now in jeopardy, as developers work to develop the property to accommodate the district's ever-changing landscape. Should this development be halted to preserve the authenticity of this market, or is the redevelopment of the market an unavoidable outcome of gentrification in the city?
