I would like Crystal City to get a mid-sized hardware store. The branch of Ace Hardware in Old Town Alexandria would be perfect to have in walking distance. It sells interesting, useful housewares, tools, and some small gift stuff. There are homeowners in walking distance to Crystal City. Having to drive to Home Depot isn't great when I need one tool and want to see and handle it before I buy, so prefer not online.

This process has been confusing since the beginning. You should either do a survey, listing the choices, or ask for comments. Mixing the two is very confusing. I don't like going back and forth between the pictures and the comments. The pictures need some explanation; some seem to overlap. Three options is insufficient. Navigating is hard: e.g., "Showing all comments for Crystal City Parks" actually shows comments on the process. Need to see the slide deck from the video presentation for downloading and study.

Where do you reference Crystal City history? Combine with the BID to have interpretive signs, like the kind on the Long Bridge Park Esplanade. Even more, do a temporary display of historical photos. What about a CC walk that takes you down memory lane park to park, starting at the Long Bridge Park?

Additional things: Create multi-level spaces. With land at a premium, if you can make things two levels, with part of the park under other parts you can gain space. At the Metro park you could have some things (small gathering spaces) physically below the level above. But at every park, the more multi-level you can get and take advantage of that, the better off the park. Second, Nothing historical or eventful is suggested. For example, there were significant brick factories before Crystal City in the area. The railroad would also be a source of signs. How about a set of 'interesting tidbit's about the area in each park?

Gateway Park least: dog park, outdoor dining, multi-use courts

Definitely not sports courts, even tho they are shown in the CCSP. Lots of them are close by. Don't need a playground here - already some nice facilities in LBP. It's a good place to picnic, but not on that long table - flexible tables/chairs might help. Unfortunately insufficient room for a dog park - but dogs do happily roam on the current lawn - so JBG doggie stations are needed.
