DeMorning Links: The triumph of NoMa


This station just got hipper, or something. (Bonnie Jo Mount - The Washington Post)
The Metro board made it official Thursday: The New York Avenue Metro station — not actually on New York Avenue, incidentally — will become the NoMa-Gallaudet stop. The change is a swift validation for the barely-decade-old, real-estate-industry-driven moniker for the area between Massachusetts and Florida avenues east of North Capitol Street. But as the Post’s Dana Hedgpeth discovered, not all station users have any idea what the heck NoMa is. Other changes affect the Green Line: Navy Yard will add Ballpark to its name, and “SEU,” for dearly departed Southeastern University, will be dropped from the Waterfront stop.
