Tea Party Guide to DC's accuracy confirmed by DC Redistricting
Apparently local residents agree with my once infamous Tea Party Guide to Washington about which neighborhoods aren't safe, since they are leaving areas along the Green and Yellow Metro lines: The areas I labelled unsafe for tourists to go to alone are being abandoned by DC residents as well, leading to redistricting, as poorer, eastern, neglected Wards lose population ---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: David Alpert, Greater Greater Washington

Yesterday, the Census Bureau released its detailed population estimates for the District of Columbia. This process kicks off the decennial debate over redrawing DC's wards. The boundaries of 2, 7, and 8 will have to shift, which will likely affect some of the other wards as well.
To encourage more resident input, I've created a web application that lets you do the redistricting yourself. You can see the populations and boundaries of each ward and click to move areas between wards until they balance out.
I will be aggregating all of the maps and recommendations from residents to create a report for the DC Council. I hope that many of you will take a few minutes to make your own map, both because it's fun and also to ensure we have a wide range of resident views for the analysis. You can even share the map you create with your friends via email, twitter, facebook, and more.
