Tivoli North? Not such a big deal after all

You may have heard about (and I wrote about) the hullaballoo surrounding the supposed plan to rename the part of the neighborhood from Monroe Street to Spring Road as "Tivoli North" or "Tivoli Heights" or some such.

Finally, after some misleading fliers, news articles and blog posts, it turns out to be a much less sinister plan - some banners that say Columbia Heights in big letter and Tivoli North in little letters (pictured), to be posted from Spring Road north to Shepherd Street, an area which most people don't consider Columbia Heights anyway. Of course, I'm not sure how I feel about a business association creating a neighborhood name, but that area is sort of nameless anyway - Petworth? Columbia Heights? 16th Street Heights? No one seems to agree.

I wrote a full run-down over at DCist, have a look.
