A reader reports just before noon from H Street between 3rd and 4th in the eastbound lanes:

“Totally took out the streetcar stop”

Update:

H st street car destroyed

James reports:

“About 2 hours ago, a Megabus headed eastbound on H completely destroyed the 3rd and H st streetcar stop. He must have somehow jumped and ridden the crub. Hard to tell if there were any injuries. I don’t think anyone was at the stop. There is glass and debris everywhere (looks like it shaved off the edge of the curb). This is directly in front of the construction site that collapsed earlier this week. Would have been scary to have been in at the front of the upper deck. Check where the front glass shattered due to the stop overhang.”

Update from Whole Foods:

Whole Foods provides free parking for all customers in its garage located under the store. The entrance is on 6th Street between H and I NE.”

A reader reports:

“Beware when shopping at the new Whole Foods on H. There have been a rash of car break ins [on the street], during the middle of the day. Windows aren’t broken, so they must be using a tool to break in. Be sure to remove all valuables!

I work over here and have for the past 3 years, and the break ins started when whole foods opened, so it’s likely that the folks breaking in are watching for people parking within those blocks then walking into whole foods (like I do most AMs now for my coffee). They can pretty much assume that people are going to be in a grocery store for at least 10-15 minutes… The break ins seem to be concentrated to the 4 blocks around the store.”

Giant-PoPville h st

It’s gonna take alotta bags of beer to salve this wound…

“Dear PoPville,

Your site has reported previously on possible incidents of banking cards being compromised at the Giant on H Street NE. I fear that I may be their latest victim. In the last week both my debit card and credit card have been used fraudulently, but the actual cards never left my possession. I live three blocks away from the Giant and it is the only place I can think of where I would have used both cards.

Curious to know if anyone else has had this same experience recently or if Giant has commented further on these concerns. It is extremely frustrating!”

From a press release:

“The Feldman Group of Marcus & Millichap announced today the sale of 1338 H Street NE along the H Street Corridor of Washington, D.C. The 1,656-SF asset sold for $835,000.

Josh Feldman, First Vice President of Investments, and Ian Ruel, Investment Associate, of the Feldman Group closed the off-market transaction. The property was purchased by The 11th Property Group, which plans to develop the asset into a mixed-use project. The previous owner operated a barbershop at the property since 1999. “This sale proves that for developers looking for projects along H Street NE, there are still opportunities as long-term owner/operators move on to the next phases of their lives,” explains Feldman.

The 11th Property Group had already closed on the property next door at the time of the sale. The Feldman Group was able to facilitate the acquisition of 1338 H Street NE so that they could increase the size of their project.”

AFSR Launch Party

From an email:

“DC voters take note! You are invited to the official launch of Americans for Self-Rule in support of its newly created PAC. We are working against those who are working against DC rights. If you’re as annoyed as we are at what Congress – including Jason Chaffetz – is doing to undermine our democratic will, I hope you’ll attend the event on Tuesday, April 18 (Tax Day!) at the H Street Country Club. The event starts at 6pm. The tickets cost $51 and they get you two drinks and is a contribution to the PAC. Tickets are available online here.

tire slash

“Dear PoPville,

Cars with out of state license plates are getting their tires slashed on K St. NE–

Both my roommate (who has a Louisiana tag) and myself (Mississippi tag) got our passenger side tires slashed last night [Saturday]. When she took her car over to the tire shop on Florida Ave (Mac’s) he told her that at least 10 other folks who live on K street had been in to get their tires fixed this morning, all out of state. Police said it was everyone (including DC tags) but all the DC tags were fine on my block and I only saw out of state tags at the tire store. Just FYI. “
