“Dear PoPville,

Time for Howard University and Washington Metropolitan Police Dept. to review traffic patterns in ‪Ledroit Park‬. The Howard University Hospital parking lot should be opened so the traffic on Florida Avenue can flow better. The time has finally arrived to make modifications in the neighborhood as the exploding growth demands it.

There must be a solution for the terrible traffic congestion on Florida Avenue NW, and converting the Howard University Hospital parking lot into a regular road should help the traffic.”

“Dear PoPville,

I was wondering if you have any info about the water fountain at the LeDroit Park dog park, which has been out for a number of months now it seems. Perhaps it’s just turned off during the winter months? Anyhow, it’s typically my dog’s favorite feature of the dog park (the other dogs are just a bonus I guess), and I kept thinking it’d be fixed or turned on shortly but nothing has been done as of yet. Now that it’s getting warmer I’m more concerned as I know many dogs will be needing to stay hydrated if they’re outside for long period of time. Does anyone know who to contact to inquire about the issue?”

“Dear PoPville,

Does anyone know the story behind Ledroit Market? I’ve lived in Bloomingdale for 3 years and it seems to follow the pattern of being open for a few months, closing down, going up for sale for 6-7 months, then re-opening and looking exactly the same.”
