Thanks to a reader for sending this little blurb from JDLand:

“First, the commission voted 4-1 to support a request from the Capitol Riverfront BID to add a couple of additional monikers to the Navy Yard Metro station name. However, while the BID wants the name to be changed to some version of “Capitol Riverfront/Ballpark/Navy Yard”, the commission’s support was apparently only if “Capitol Riverfront” is not the first part of the new name.”

Normally I don’t support too many additions but this makes a lot of sense to me. I always thought adding ballpark or Nationals Stadium would be helpful. And now with the addition of Yards Park it seems to warrant a Capitol Riverfront or Yards Park addition. Do you think either of these additions would be helpful?
