A reader reports:

“Just wanted to let you know that Field to City, a small corner grocery store on 2nd and Rhode Island NW has closed. My GF and I have been going there for a few years to pick up high quality locally grown produce, dairy, and eggs (not to mention a huge beer selection). Talked to the owner briefly and he said it had been heading this way for a while. Sad to see the only real grocery option in Bloomingdale close.”

Field to City emails:

“I am actually taking orders by text and email, and maintain a short list of popular items that can be viewed via autoreply on my [email protected] account.”

“Dear PoPville,

I’d like to let everyone that lives in Bloomingdale know that there is an attacker in the area. Unfortunately, he did not just snatch my purse and run, which would be bad enough – he continued to hold me after he had my purse, pushed me down into a lower level stairway, and attempted to take off my shirt. Fortunately, someone passed by at the right moment and heard me yelling, and I escaped with only bruises and scrapes. I hope this guy is caught before he can do anything similar or worse to anyone else, but it is unlikely that the police will be able to catch him from the information I was able to provide as I never got a good look at his face.

The attack happened around 7:15 PM as I was walking home from the Shaw metro station and was on the south side of Seaton NW between 1st and 2nd St. If by any chance anyone sees anything that might be of any help in solving this, please call the DC police tip line at (202) 727-9099.”

From DC Water:

“If you thought holiday traffic was bad, consider this—it took DC Water’s tunnel boring machine named Lucy five months to travel 2,700 feet. Granted, she did it about 100 feet below ground and had to cut her way through 500 million pounds of sand, silt and clay. Lucy mined under First Street, NW, from Channing Street to Rhode Island Avenue, to create the First Street Tunnel. This tunnel segment will ultimately connect to the five-mile-long Northeast Boundary Tunnel in 2022.

“We are pleased to reach this important milestone in the project and are grateful for the continued patience of the impacted community,” said DC Water CEO and General Manager George Hawkins. “We will continue to work with the neighborhood to complete this essential project as soon as possible to provide flood relief for residents.”

From 2016 to 2022 the First Street Tunnel will store and then pump combined sewage up into the existing sewer system during and after rainstorms to keep it off of streets and out of basements. The First Street Tunnel is designed to mitigate flooding from undersized sewers in the Bloomingdale and LeDroit Park neighborhoods. It is part of the DC Clean Rivers Project aimed at significantly reducing combined sewer overflows to District waterways. (more…)
