This is rad! A couple suggestions for your “getting around” section:

  1. Point out that once the Alphabet streets end (around W St I think) the alphabet starts over with two-syllable street names. Once those end, it starts over again with three syllable names. So not only does “7th and H NW” work for figuring out where you are, so does “36th and Brandywine.”
  2. Ignore state streets for all navigation purposes. They’re only useful purpose is telling a cab or uber where to pick you up or drop you off.
  3. Trains run no MORE than 20 minutes apart.
