This rental is located at 17th and Corcoran St, NW. The listing says:

“This is a rare opportunity to rent a beautiful two-level apartment at the intersection of 17th and Corcoran. The apartment is one of three units in a late-19th century row house located on 17th Street (it’s the red brick building that has Prego Again on the ground floor).

The unit is on the top two floors of the building and gets ample light from three skylights and multiple large windows. The kitchen has granite countertops and plenty of cabinet space. Central A/C, hardwood floors, and lots of character, including two alcoves upstairs.

The location is perfect. Safeway is across the street and all of the restaurants and bars on 17th Street are at your doorstep. Whole Foods is a 5 minute walk, Trader Joe’s a 10 minute walk, and the Dupont metro is 5 minutes away.

Tenant pays for electric. Washer and dryer is shared by the other two tenants, but is free and always available. Unfortunately no pets are allowed. Roof is accessible from the bedroom.

Feel free to email with any questions or if you would like to schedule a viewing. Apartment available October 30.”

Cost: FREE
Space is limited, RSVP required.

Special Halloween edition of Microbes After Hours!

What happens to us after we die? A decomposing corpse becomes its own mini-ecosystem, hosting insects, scavengers and multitudes of microbes. Microbes from the environment, the corpse, as well as the insects and scavengers are blended together and work to recycle tissues back to their constituents. Dr. Jennifer DeBruyn (Associate Professor, The University of Tennessee) will discuss the fascinating process of human decomposition, and how scientists are using that information to inform forensic science, livestock mortality management and fossilization.

Can’t attend in person? We will also be live streaming on YouTube.”
