New work by Lloyd Wolf from Columbia Pike, in south Arlington, Virginia.
Right now, the area along Columbia Pike is among the most ethnically-diverse locations on earth. It is a magnet for new immigrants from every compass point, mixed together with old Arlington, the remnants of pre-strip mall and condo culture, and the large transient population that comes to sojourn here in the shadow of the federal government.
As Columbia Pike is currently undergoing rapid and aggressive gentrification, much of this vibrant melange of peoples will likely begin to lose its particularly blend of pungencies.
