Fractal District

Mandelbrot Fractal

A fractal is a shape that is composed entirely of smaller versions of itself.  While glancing at a map of Shepherd Park yesterday, we discovered the shape of the District within the District.

The area is bounded by North Portal Drive (corresponding to Western Avenue), Rock Creek Park (corresponding to the Potomac), Alaska Avenue (corresponding to Southern Avenue), and Eastern Avenue (as itself).
