    freedom plaza has some skaters lurking there occasionally. like at night, i guess. i dunno about any gold rail or anything though.... but there's been brand new construction everywhere - a new convention center and shit. hell of a lot of new bombs and shit too. and yeah, that "street" near MLK library is a real street now, but that was SOOOOO long ago. man, it's been a while since you've been back to dc, obviously. definetly take a trip out here to check out the new shit, it's worth it, just don't stay too long. it might kill you. i'm dying as we speak....

    man, i never ever KNEW about that spot near metro center, so unfortunately i can't answer that question.
    ummm, (for graff viewing) of course though, you gotta ride the red line up to silverspring... and in general(if you have a car... if not the bus and legs will do) hit the main streets to see what's been happening. i mean like, 14th, 16th, a lot of the avenues... dc is small, you know, i just say start walking, driving, or get on the bus and just let it take you where it takes you. i'm sure that'll catch you up.
    because i think a lot of the skaters that used to kick it at freedom plaza might have just left dc altogether. last summer there were a shit load that i used to see at night.... but this summer i've hardly seen any, so i dunno what to tell you in that regard.... but good luck in checking out that spot near metro center and seeing if the "gold rail" is still there.....
