“These brand new apartments are conveniently located amongst the independent shops and restaurants of Takoma Park and minutes away from the bustling shopping and dining destination of downtown Silver Spring, MD. The building is tailored to complement the unique architecture of the neighborhood, with a five-story Victorian-style warehouse design connected by a glass “hyphen” to a contemporary, four-story brick and stone building in the Art Deco style.”
This is the same building where a Busboys and Poets is coming.
If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please shoot me an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 3-4 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them.

My husband and I are looking to turn our already renovated basement into a rental unit. Although the basement is renovated, we would need to make a few adjustments like taking out an interior staircase and adding in plumbing/electrical for a kitchen area. Most of the general contractors we have talked to though said they wouldn’t take on a “small” job such as this, and they only work on jobs in the $50-$100K area. I’m wondering if anyone has worked with a good general contractor they can recommend, or know of any that would take on a job of this size.”
“So an industrial design blog that I follow, core77, had an interesting post that I thought would serve as a good public service reminder for my fellow popville bikers. I had never really thought about how much the blind spot of a semi truck changes as the back of the truck articulates back and forth. As the truck turns, its mirrors don’t, leaving huge blind spots in places that they could see when they were going straight. The Core77 post shares a Youtube video that was made by Transport for London that illustrates just how big the truck’s blind spot is when it is starting to turn a corner. It was eye opening for me. Be alert and stay safe out there! Particularly as we get more and more big retailers and their big delivery trucks in the neighborhood. Don’t ever assume that they can see you on your bike.
(Keep in mind, that the video was made in the UK, so the driver and curb are mirrored to the opposite side of the truck here in the US.)”
