# At the Crossroads

## by Michael Korn

Each of the given shapes is the intersection of the outlines of two states.
(See images below.) Solvers need to identify the two states in each. Having
done this, they must now realize that each of these corresponds to the intersection
of two avenues in Washington, DC. Each intersection is a named square or circle.
(This is clued by the title "At the Crossroads," the
fact that they are "intersections," and the squares and circles around each number.)
Having found the names of each square or circle, they take one letter from each,
as indicated by the provided numbers, and these spell the answer, **GEORGETOWN**.
