New Name for NoMa Metro Brings Fanfare

The NoMa Business Improvement District, along with Galludet University and WMATA, celebrated the renaming the metro station Noma-Galludet U (and not the tiring and uninspiring   New York Avenue – Florida Avenue – Gallaudet University Metro Station–bleh).  The ribbon cutting this morning featured some big names from the city (Mayor Vince Gray, Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton) and from the Metro board (General Manager Richard Sarles), and represenatives from NoMa BID and from Galludet.

The NoMa BID (NoMa means “north of Mass. Ave, to you readers in Northwest) has been celebrating the neighborhood quite a bit lately.  Farmers Markets are held every Wednesday, as is Summer Screen each Wednesday evening.  Along with free outdoor concerts and lots of construction (seriously, everything is being built up…and we can say hello to the new NPR headquarters very soon), AND the Metropolitan Bike Trail, NoMa is arriving in a big way.

So come out and enjoy the neighborhood.  Tonight’s as good a time as any–Shaun of the Dead will be playing at sunset.  Nothing says renewal like zombies.
