When the Tulips last visited the capital, the Tulps were one of only a handful of major American cities to have a tulip bloom.
It was a time of prosperity for Washington, D.C., which was a major hub for trade, commerce, and entertainment.
Today, the city is a ghost town.
In January 2018, the University of Washington announced it would close all campuses and campus housing after years of declining enrollment and dwindling income.
The university blamed the decline on declining demand for housing, declining property values, and declining enrollment.
Since then, the school has been able to find a few new students and the campus has been reopened to students.
But the city has seen a steep decline in the number of people staying there.
According to the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area Housing Authority, the number has dropped by half in the past five years.
There are now fewer than 4,000 students at Washington’s local universities.
According the Georgetown University Housing and Economic Research Center, fewer than 10 percent of the city’s student population has a job.
And according to the Georgetown Center for Policy and Research, about half of all public housing units are now in disrepair, according to a study published in 2016.
The Georgetown University study found that the majority of those students were from low-income households, and that about two-thirds of them were black.
In Washington, the students and their families were also the most affected by the downturn.
They had to move away from the city to find other housing options, including rentals in the suburbs and other areas in the state of Maryland, according a recent report from the Urban Institute.
In February, the Washington Metropolitan Area Health Authority issued a new recommendation to reduce the number and type of subsidized apartments in the region, but the decision to limit the number to only the inner suburbs was met with opposition from local politicians.
“I think we’re at a tipping point where we have to start looking at the long-term sustainability of the public housing,” said D.L. Smith, the former chairman of the Washington Housing Authority.
“The city needs to start thinking long-range about the long term sustainability of these subsidized apartments.”
For the Tulpe Festival, which has been held since 2001, the plan is to have about 20,000 visitors on Saturday, March 3, 2019.
It’s the second time the festival has been moved since it was established in 1981.
The last time it was held was in October 2017.
“It’s really not a celebration of the Tulpes anymore, it’s about the Tulpees,” said TulipFest coordinator Matt Riggs.
“That’s the main theme, and we wanted to put it back into the tradition that it was built to have.”
Tulip Fest’s 2017 Tulipfest website says the festival celebrates the tulip, and the tulips are considered a symbol of peace, prosperity, and love.
The festival is held annually on the last Saturday in March.
