The contest to choose a design for the Route 1 Ride bus is drawing to a close, with voting set to end on Sunday, Sept. 9.

Locals captured scenes of Baltimore Avenue, from run down storefronts to the new development at Hyattsville's Arts District.
On June 25, nine residents from Hyattsville and nearby Washington, D.C., met up with Patch photographer Chris Suspect for the first ever Hyattsville Patch Photo Walk. The group started at the corner of Route 1 and Queensbury Road and walked 1.2 miles to Rhode Island Reds for the restaurant's closing night party. Along the way the group captured scenes of Baltimore Avenue, from run down storefronts to the new development at Hyattsville's Arts District. From the hundreds of photos that were taken, five were selected from each photographer on the walk. Each helps characterize the state of Route 1, the people the group came accross, and each other.
