Looking Forward to the
2008 ASA Annual Meeting in Boston
Boston: Greener than an Emerald Necklace
Boston is known for its Emerald Necklace, a chain of parks framing the city designed by Frederick Law Olmstead. More recently Boston is earning another type of green notorietyas a city that takes global warming seriously. Boston is taking action on both urban sources of greenhouse gas emissions: buildings and transportation.
A New, Permanent Home for ASA
In March the American Sociological Association, at 103 years old, is moving into a new permanent home on the fifth and sixth floors of a newly constructed office condominium at 1430 K Street in Washington, DC. The building has a glass façade facing the K Street bustle, so close to McPherson Square Park you can see the trees and, if not for the traffic, hear the birds. For those who know the District, K Street is easy to remember as the major east-west route through the city. It passes just north of the White House. In fact, the White House is two blocks from ASAs new headquarters. A quick metro ride from Reagan National Airport or Union Station to the McPherson Square stop brings you to our new home.
