The Takoma/Langley Crossroads Development Authority, Inc. (CDA) is a unique 501(c)(6) business association organized in 1987 to market and promote the Takoma/Langley Commercial Management District, provide security, maintenance and amenities in the diverse, international Takoma/Langley Crossroads commercial area at the border of Montgomery and Prince George’s counties. The CDA is located in the City of Takoma Park, in Montgomery County, Maryland.
The Crossroads takes its name from the major intersection of state highways at its core, New Hampshire Avenue (MD650) and University Boulevard (MD193). It grew into a regional shopping destination in the 1950s and 1960s, with large shopping centers on each corner and several office buildings. Today, the Crossroads has an array of independent and chain businesses, along with professionals, that serve local residents as well as customers from throughout the region who seek international goods and services. A number of stores carry products sought by African immigrants such as Halal meat (Halal Meat & Grocery), root vegetables and greens (Red Apple Farmers Market), fabrics, music, and films (Patrick International), herbs, and more. Other stores carry West Indian products such as The Caribbean Market, or serve Caribbean food (Carribean Palace). Business owners and professionals in the Crossroads represent dozens of nations including Iran, Lebanon, Pakistan, Chile, Guyana, Nigeria, Antigua, Ecuador, Israel, El Salvador, China, Viet Nam, Guatemala, Korea, India, Ethiopia, and beyond.
