    The Park & Shop (aka Connecticut Avenue Park & Shop, aka Cleveland Park Park & Shop--Cleveland Park neighborhood) is still very much alive. It was renovated in the 1990s. It has a metro stop in front. There is another Park & Shop from the late 30s on Georgia Ave NW, near the Maryland line, N of Walter Reed, built by the same developer. Both were anchored by A&Ps for decades(but no longer). Safeway also anchored the Cleveland Park Park & Shop.
