LIKE PETER USTINOV, BUT 60 YEARS YOUNGER: Never say we don't have a public impact here at ALOTT5MA.
My earlier post about the wretched mass that is Crystal City has merited a rebuttal from Mr. Rob Mandle, operations director of the Crystal City Business Improvement District. In all fairness, his comment should get a hearing, so I've brought it up top:
Though there's still some distance to travel, there are a lot of SOUL-ful changes happening in Crystal City. We hosted Artomatic last year, brought Arena Stage across the river, are almost finished with a new Mosaic at the Metro, have Monday night Bond Outdoor Movie nights, and much more on the way. Part of soul is the people - and with Conservation International, NCB, BNA, PBS and others coming in, it's only going to get better. We're green, art-y, and active. Just be sure to check our website - we'll point you in the right direction.
I really should have noted the 21 weeks of James Bond outdoor film festival. That's pretty cool.
But since we have an audience, anyone who cares to point out needed improvements to Crystal City should feel free to take the opportunity.
