Removed these from the Wikipedia article on Penn Quarter, but these probably have useful information for this page. Save here for later.

I've commented out the links to prevent this from becoming a spam magnet. Click edit to access them. --Peter Talk 02:35, 24 June 2009 (EDT)

Excessive Text[edit]

Seems like the Understand and By Metro sections are a bit gratuitous in length to me. Looks like good info, just a bit too comprehensive/encyclopedic to be useful to someone visiting the area. I'm hesitant to trim down the text because someone obviously put a lot of work into this. Any ideas on some compromises for how we can trim this down? --Jtesla16 21:17, 19 June 2009 (EDT)

I'll take a hack at it pretty soon, akin to what I did for the Mall [2]. The content is all there, just in too great a quantity. I figure we can decide post-trim whether compromises are needed. The relatively few listings need an overhaul too—the "guide" status tag might have been a bit premature. --Peter Talk 00:35, 20 June 2009 (EDT)
I see there was a lot of really good, well-written content in the understand section about the neighborhoods that unfortunately was replaced by very bland content that probably doesn't belong in a travel guide—it certainly doesn't meet our goals regarding tone. I'm currently re-writing, and will resurrect that good content. --Peter Talk 02:34, 24 June 2009 (EDT)

Closed listings[edit]

  • Pershing Park Ice Rink, 14th St and Pennsylvania Avenue NW, +1 202 737-6938, [1]. Enjoy ice skating in the shadow of the Ronald Reagan Building and the Willard Hotel (specially decorated during the holiday season). (Currently closed.  edit

The website says it's closed, although I can't help but wonder if that's just because it's July. They haven't answered my phone calls, so I'll let the listing languish here until I get new information. --Peter Talk 12:33, 10 July 2009 (EDT)

District map[edit]

Map of the East End-Penn Quarter area of Washington, D.C.

I have replaced the map shown to the right with this one, as it has all the listings on it in icon form. If people would like to change it back, please discuss here. --Peter Talk 12:50, 9 August 2009 (EDT)
