Introducing PoP Video by Joe Mills

It is my pleasure to introduce a new video feature on PoP. These videos will feature life around Petworth, Columbia Heights, and the 14th Street Corridor. This feature is the brain child of Petworth resident, Joe Mills. This week’s video features Grant Circle and the running time is about 1 minute and 20 seconds. Please comment to let us know if you would like to see more of these videos.

If you have any ideas or would like to contribute to PoP in any way don’t hesitate to contact me at [email protected] And remember, I’m still looking for an intern!

Oh yeah, and since I’m asking for things, if anyone lives in a rowhouse with one of those tiled vestibules I’d love to get a photo of that. Many thanks and enjoy the video.

  • Not bad for the first try. BTW, speaking about Grant Circle, I have been tempted to take a run around it a couple of times, despite the fact that the sidewalk is a bit too close to the road. What do you all think about it, walking or running around the circle in the evening, its overall safety from a crime point of view, plus traffic-wise?

  • Ohmigod this is cool! Kudos to Joe! And like the music… Would love to have little historical/neighborhoody/whatever videos on PoP–fantastic new feature!

  • A piece on the history of the Soldiers Home and/or Lincoln’s summer home would be sharp. Not sure about the “respect” factor, but the Rock Creek Church cemetary would be a good location as well.

    Loved the video. Props to Joe.

  • I walk the Slightly Confused Watchdog to Grant Circle all the time Toby. There is hardly anyone ever there.

    One time there were a couple of youths that were teasing me so I let SCW off-leash and gave the attack command “Bite balls!”

    Just kidding. 😉

  • That’s a cool video.

  • i walk my dogs around the circle all the time and have never had any trouble.

  • very nice…

  • Interesting video. I love that voice.

  • eery voice.

    Video is great for things that move: a person gesturing or demonstrating techniques, acrobats, flying squirrels

  • Why does Sherman Circle always get ignored? There are frequently people out walking, jogging, wogging, and sitting around Sherman. And, if it matters, the circular sidewalk is set back from the street a bit. If only it had a statue or fountain er sumpin.

  • Funny you should mention that, stay tuned for Sherman Circle…

  • Sherman Circle is Grant Circle’s bitch. You Sherman Circlers best just stay north of Alison if’n you know what’s good for ya.
