“Dear PoPville,

You were typically able to park on my street in Columbia heights at night and on weekends without a parking permit. Today I noticed all the buildings on my street had this sign on the door. Have others noticed this? Is it for inauguration or are they changing parking regulations?”

Ed. Note: You can see all the road closures for inauguration here.


A reader reports:

“This sign/art popped up in Columbia Heights yesterday at 14th & Irving across from metro in front of CVS. Did a google search and IG search and didn’t come up with anything. Any idea who is sponsoring?”

I was able to find them on Twitter:

“The Respect Flag at 14th & Irving in DC. Designed by emzki.com Connect your stories & selfies taken through the stars. #harassmentfreedc Respect!”
