Sweet Street Scene

Anyone recognize it? The hint would be the awning seen on the left hand side of the photo…

  • ugh. Not very sweet to me. Needs more trees and less concrete. Looks like some harsh, unwelcoming urban streetscape in Park View – nasty! Maybe Lamont and Warder?

  • Prince Of Petworth

    There are a lot of trees there, no? They’re just a bit smaller. It’s not Lamont and Warder…

  • Looks like Otis Place, where it hits Georgia Ave., with Bill’s Seafood Market awning on the left.

  • Ha! But I was right about it being in Park View! So many of the streets south of Rock Creek Church Road and to the east of Georgia ave. look like this. More trees are def needed – actually, more trees are needed everywhere in DC.

    Anon, we used to have a LOT of trees – trees everywhere!

    But Dutch Elm disease devastated our street trees, and at that point the city was too broke to replace the trees. The Casey Foundation is now working to bring back our trees, but it is not a quick thing to do.

  • Seriously, the Casey Foundation is doing the Lord’s work. God bless ’em.

  • Ah, Fish in the Hood. I keep telling myself I’ll eat there some time instead of just passing it on the way to the Metro.

    For what it’s worth, if you go one block north and check out Princeton Place, the street trees are big and beautiful.
