GM reported on this in the ANC round-up, but Georgetown Current reporter Carol Buckley takes much better notes than him and got the details of the proposed alumni march. Here is the controversial proposed route:
The alumni were proposed to gather in front of Trinity Church on 36th St., travel up 36th to O, and walk west to the University gates. This would be a slight modification from last year when they gathered on 36th above O St. and walked south to O and then west to the gates.
People new to Georgetown are often surprised to come across the insular terms East Village and West Village. They are terms used to distinguish those parts of Georgetown on either side of Wisconsin Ave. Beyond simple geography, these terms often carry with them loaded associations, most of which are unjustified in GM’s opinion. So what’s the deal with the two villages?
