I'm late to the party here, but I'd propose adding Quintana St. to the list of small, narrow streets receiving very heavy cut-through traffic. This tiny street between Queens Chapel and East-West Hwy is a (infamously) popular cut-through for people trying to avoid the Belcrest/Queens Chapel intersection light debacle. AND it's DANGEROUS, not just inconvenient, for those of who live on the street because the street's curve makes visibility very poor. It's a mess.

Currently, the City is broken into unconnected parts, such as * the EYA/Franklins/Vigilante restaurant area * Magruder Park * Heurich Park * Two Metros * West Hyattsville/East Hyattsville/North Hyattsville (and, within those, various sub-neighborhoods) * Mall ++ (UTC, etc.)
These all feel very DISconnected from each other. We need a way to visually and physically (and thus, emotionally and communitarianly - hey, language is fluid!) connect/bring these parts together. This is an urban design question and I'm sure there are experts out there who specialize in this; so no need to reinvent the wheel. Let's talk to them!
