Today in Pictures - St. Elizabeths


After nearly a century of being vacant, the District government opened the east side of St. Elizabeths to the public this weekend.  While construction on the federally-owned west side continues in anticipation of a new home for multiple agencies, the District is still creating a plan for what to do with their half - 183 acres with some of the most notable vistas and architecture in the city - which the federal government turned over to the city 25 years ago.  DC's portion still holds patients like John Hinckley Jr., though far fewer patients than the thousands that filled the asylum in the last century.

What exactly does it mean for the eastern portion to be open to the public? Is it now a park-like attraction or something?
