Man allegedly seen masturbating and yelling at passersby at 11th and Rhode Island Ave, NW

“Dear PoPville,

I was walking my dog today [Sunday] and this man was standing next to the Logan Circle laundromat at 11th st NW and Rhode Island Ave NW masturbating and yelling some nightmare shit at women and kids who were walking by on the sidewalk. I saw what he was doing and took my phone out to call 911 and he stopped and started walking toward me in an aggressive way and yelling some scary stuff. I took this photo, called the police and told them. They said they sent a unit out and didn’t find him. I sent photos to them as well. I’m sending it in hopes that if a woman sees this man, they will know to stay away from him.”


Holy transformations Vol. 76 – 1728 14th Street, NW – the former International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers building and soon to be home of West Elm.  It’s located between crown pawnbrokers and the former Redeem boutique and future Logan Hardware store.

West Elm currently has a DC location in Georgetown at 3333 M Street, NW.

Thanks to all who sent emails about Popeyes closing. We knew it was coming when we saw La Villa closed next door in early June. Fear not Popeyes fans – they’ll reopen in 2-3 months across the street at 1322 14th St, NW (between B Too and The Pig.)

From an email:

“Just wanted to send over a quick note to let you know what Pearl Dive Oyster Palace will be offering during the MidCity Dog Days of Summer, coming up on Saturday and Sunday, August 2nd and 3rd. Pearl Dive will be doing a special sidewalk pop up on the restaurant’s patio both days, featuring fried peach pies with vanilla ice cream for $5 by pastry chef Carri-Anne Hamer, in addition to $1 shucked oysters.”


“Dear PoPville,

I live on Church Street between 14th and 15th NW. I walk by these two apartments everyday and am so curious about what’s going on. It’s clear that no one lives there. The front doors are always open, there’s trash inside, and the buildings are falling apart. It’s as if the owners refused to sell out to the developers who completely redid the entire block back starting back in 2002. Anyone out there know what’s up with these dilapidated buildings on what is otherwise a pristine street? Again this is on Church Street between 14th and 15th (these buildings are closer to 15th).”

This is a new project from Brookrose development:

“Brook Rose Development is building one of DC’s first micro-unit projects on the 1400 block of Church Street, the ideal locale for the car-less urban dweller

This “Urban Nirvana” will house 37 micro-units ranging from 265 to 490 square feet. The glassy 8-story building will incorporate three historic town homes and feature expansive windows, multipurpose furnishings, and a communal roof deck.

Residents should have no trouble adapting to these luxurious, yet compact, suites. The best feature, however, is simply the location. Church Street is arguably one of the most desirable streets for the DC urbanite, just steps away from everything – Whole Foods, Starbucks, Vida Fitness, Flow Yoga and some of our city’s best restaurants & bars.”
