What recession? While some cities, such as New York, still aren't issuing as many permits to build housing developments as they were pre-crash, D.C. has most definitely recovered in that sense. While 2013 didn't see as many permits issued as say, 2011, D.C. authorized 128.1% more permits last year than they did in 2003. [WSJ; Photo by David Gaines]
