This was the scene at the bus stop on 14th across from Target in Columbia Heights this morning. It’s not at all unusual to see that stop trashed. The photo doesn’t capture the smell of urine. (Really? People will pee at a bus stop at a busy intersection in plain view of everyone?) I used to live near Nationals Park, and the Capitol Riverfront folks did a good job keeping public spaces tidy and the atmosphere around the Metro stops friendly. Maybe Target, Best Buy, Chipotle, the banks, and other businesses in Columbia Heights should pony up for something similar. ‘Cause scenes like this sure don’t make me want to live, do business, or wait for the bus in the neighborhood.
