Golden Triangle Map Guide Available
A slick, fold-out map and guide to most businesses in the Connecticut Avenue and K Street area has just been published by the Golden Triangle Business Improvement District.
The free directory includes businesses that are members of the district, about 80 percent of the merchants, in an area roughly bounded by H Street, Pennsylvania Avenue, 19th Street, New Hampshire Avenue, Massachusetts Avenue, Connecticut Avenue, Rhode Island Avenue and 16th Street NW.
The district is a privately financed association of property owners that seeks to improve commercial areas by cleaning the streets, assisting visitors with directions and beautifying the area.
Included in the guide are restaurants, nightclubs, bookstores, coffee shops, liquor stores, pharmacies and others. The guide is available at eight hotels in the district, including the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel and the Hay-Adams Hotel. It will be mailed upon request. For information call 202-463-3400.
