What does it take to open a business in a neighborhood that some residents feel has traditionally lacked shops, restaurants and entertainment? 

As development ramps up East of the River -- a new sports and entertainment arena in Congress Heights, Busboys and Poets in Anacostia, along with smaller local businesses -- are longtime business owners, new entrepreneurs, and job seekers able to take advantage of the new growth? What are the businesses that are setting up shop -- and will they serve the community surrounding them? 

Join Kojo Nnamdi to talk about the landscape of local businesses, jobs and entrepreneurship in Ward 8.
