College Students Head to Arts District

The Shoppes at Arts District Hyattsville have become popular with students at the University of Maryland in College Park, according to a recent article in the the student newspaper, The Diamondback.

Until recently, dreary roads and dilapidated buildings heading south on Route 1 paved the way to Washington.

But Hyattsville officials launched a $200 million effort in 2010 to revitalize the city by attracting unique stores, each catering to a niche crowd. Since then, more students said they are discovering the cultural hot spot and refuge from College Park just 10 minutes from the campus.
