If you told me ten years ago…

True story – I had friends who lived in Woodridge years ago must’ve been around 2005 and I went to their house for a BBQ. It was around 22nd Street, NE. So I figured, I’d just walk to Rhode Island and catch a cab when I was ready to go. This was before Lyft and Uber. So it’s relatively early like maybe 8 or 9pm. I walk to Rhode Island Ave and there are zero cabs. A big old goose egg. OK, I’m a walker (I walked to the BBQ but knew walking all the way home wasn’t a great option), so I figure what the hell I’ll just walk until I see a cab. hahaha It’s easy to forget the former cab dead-zones. There were many. It used to be impossible to catch a cab at Wonderland if you can believe that. Anyway, I get about 1 block on Rhode Island and this lady who must’ve been 70 years old or so makes a beeline straight towards me and says – “where are you going?” I say, I’m walking towards the metro and trying to catch a cab. She says “oh no you’re not.” She physically grabs me and walks to the bus stop and waits with me and RIDES WITH ME to the metro (I think it was Brookland) to make sure I got there OK. I’ll never forget that night. That by the by, is a very good example for those who ask me about the meaning of the beautiful life.

Anyway, enough about me, check out this listing I spotted while looking for today’s GDoN:

“Rare Opportunity in Hot Woodridge! Large Luxurious Custom Home awaits. Chef’s kitchen w/ Viking Pro cooking appliances and built in banquette. Huge Dramatic master suite*Home Theater*Remote A/V control*5 Bedroom suites with full baths*Elevator shaft-potential for disability access*Imagine Enjoying Spring days on rear deck*blocks from new Shops at Dakota Crossing Town Center”

Last week, Good Deal or Not Revisited reviewed the settled sale in Eckington of a lower level duplex condo units converted from a previous single family home. (You can see that post here.) In relation to that post, Commenter JS wrote: “I think there’s a little bit of a bubble bursting in these two unit buildings, at least when it comes to the lower level units. In my neck of the woods, pop-up top units seem to sell fairly quickly at close to list while the lower level ones sit for months and only move after a few significant (20K+) price reductions.” (more…)

The listing can be seen here: here.

The legal subdivision of Eckington spans from the Met Branch Trail along the east side, to Florida Ave at the south end, all the way to Rhode Island Ave on the north end. Technically, to the west it sprawls across North Cap to include the Florida/Rhode Island/North Cap triangle on the NW side. North Capitol Street is a defining physical boundary, in addition to being the edge of the NW/NE quadrant and thus, for data purposes, we’ll call that triangle the south side of Bloomingdale, and will stick to referring to the Eckington neighborhood as being in the NE quadrant.
