“Dear PoPville,

Have you heard about this? Looks great — the communal gathering space in front of the 7-11 in Mt Pleasant is going to be turned into a proper park:

“Amigos park is a design+build public space initiative in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood of Washington, DC.”

OP also passes on a note from NextDoor that says: “”A group of neighbors are working with Open Architecture DC and Green Spaces for DC to design and build a pocket park next to 7-11 at the NW corner of Mount Pleasant and Kenyon.”” Updates as plans progress.

16th & Newton NW

A reader reports:

“Earlier today – saw the aftermath of crash at 16th and Newton. I haven’t seen anything on the news about this – hope the biker is ok! The ambulance drove away slowly – good sign or bad sign? and (preempting possible PoPville comments!):

Didn’t see license plate therefore can’t tell if it was a MD driver. There is a bike helmet in the road so presumably the biker was wearing a helmet (not shown in photo because I cropped the people out)”
