Podcast: Angela Fox of the Crystal City BID

The BID was formed about 10 years ago and charged with “reinventing” Crystal City, changing perceptions about one of the area’s biggest business districts and creating experiences that make it a more dynamic place to live, work and play.

That was not an easy task, especially when half the jobs in the area were set to pick up and leave due to BRAC. We asked Angie about how the BID tackled that challenge, what kind of events it’s hosting this year, and about the changes to Crystal City that could be coming soon.

Also discussed: the Crystal Couture fashion show and sale that’s happening in Crystal City this weekend.
