This morning just before 6am there was a SWAT raid on the row house directly next door to me near 14th and Meridian Pl NW in Columbia Heights. My house mates and I suspected drug dealing was going on at the residence based off all the suspicious comings and goings we have witnessed since we moved in three months ago. We woke up to flash bangs, doors being broken in, and SWAT members apprehending people. Unfortunately, we did not get to see any of the evidence being taken out of the house. While I hope to never have that kind of scary wake up again, props to the cops for their investigation and take down! Anyone else hear or see this?
3710 14th St, NW Though it wasn’t looking good a couple of months ago thanks to a reader for sending the good news: “Taqueria habanero is open!” They are located a few storefronts south of Lyman’s and Red Derby between Spring Road and Quincy. Anyone happen to stop by for an early taste yesterday?
3rd and K Street, NE A lot has changed since early August. This is the corner right across the street from Indigo. What do you think of the brick front and gray side? Here’s what the one above looked like in April:
It actually looks like it could be permanent. From near the Eastern Market metro:
From Capitol Hill.
My favorite row from Chinatown – great details up top:
