I recently moved to a new area of DC, and I’ve found an unusual building becoming a destination during morning dog walks: Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium, also known as RFK Stadium. Opened in 1961 as one of the first major stadiums designed for multiple sports, its glory days have faded and it now sits deteriorating. Only 2 miles from the Capitol Building and sitting along the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail, the sight of the aging stadium is unexpected. As summer begins in the District, I love seeing the visual contrast of building decay and nature.
