Georgia and Lamont St, NW

“Dear PoPville,

I wanted to make sure that you post about the robbery at gunpoint that occurred a little after 11 in the 700 block of Lamont street, It is on MPD Twitter. Anyway this is the same block that we have been hearing complaints about for the past few weeks, hell on Monday there was a crime walk, last night a meeting with ANC rep Bobby Holmes and reps from the 3rd and 4th district that was to a degree a little disappointing. While patrols, or really a cop just stationed at that corner and the shutting down of the drug house across the street on Lamont, have at least given the corner the appearance of not being so shitty, I guess that is pretty much all for nothing, because Robbery Gun point is about the worst thing I can recall in a while happening here in a while.

Anyway, while I don’t speak for everyone, I think many felt that the fact that these three blocks south of the park road substation are so crappy is really pretty embarrassing, and I think many of us at least get the sense that it has to do with the border being drawn where it is and the way that effects policing. Anyway at this point I am just pissed.

The sheer amount of criminal activity at this corner and in the alleys immediately east and west of it is staggering and yet even when we raise a pretty good stink they can’t keep it safe one night after the stink? It sucks for the neighborhood, I would particularly hate to be in the lofts at this point and it is a total embarrassment for MPD. I could vent forever but I am sure you get my point, please, please, please post something about this, it is ridiculous.”

“Dear PoPville,

The new Whitney Row condos on Newton Pl NW in Park View turned out really well (you posted about the finished building a while ago). They completely razed 3 old row houses to build it from the ground up. So imagine my surprise and confusion when I saw the sign they recently added: “circa 1910, restored and developed 2015.” They couldn’t be more misleading if they tried!”

“Dear PoPville,

I have lived in the Park View for 4 years and really like the convenience of the area. However, the bus stop at the corner of Georgia ave. and Lamont st. has always been a hub for loitering, open container drinking, and other suspect activities. In recent weeks, there has been an exponential increase in the amount of people congregating around the bus stop, liquor store, Eddie Leonard’s Carry Out and and further down by the ALSCO building. At one point, there were at least 20 men loitering and drinking from open containers in this general area, with some obstructing the entrance to the apartment building located at 3318 Georgia Avenue NW, and others obstructing the entrance to the condominiums located on Lamont Street. Just last week, a concerned citizen informed me that they witnessed several cars dropping off men with no clear intent or purpose other than to loiter on the corner.

In addition to the loitering, there is a vacant house located directly accross the street from Eddie Leonard that I have been told is a known drug house. I have seen young men hanging around the steps of the house “interacting” with who I perceive to be as drug addicts. I have also been told that Eddie Leonard is cashing food stamps and other social benefits so these indivudals can go accross the street and purchase their drugs from the drug house.

All of this has to stop. I know that sounds naive, but I really want to call Park View residents to action or any DC resident that wants to help rid crime from our neighborhood. We can get special attention to the area by calling 911 to report loitering or whatever you deem to be suspious behavior. While I understand loitering is not a crime in DC, I am sure that the crimes occuring in this area are causing the loitering.

Please contact MPDC:
● 3rd District Commander Jacob Kishter at / (202) 673­6820
● 3rd District Captain Burt Henry at / (202) 409­2027/ (202) 671­6777
● 3rd District (PSA 302) Lieutenant Mark Hodge at (202) 489­8338 / (202)

You can also go to 3rd District headquaters on 1624 V St NW
Washington, DC 20009 and fill out a special attention form with the Vice Unit.

In addition to the police, you can also email our council member Brianne Nadeau at and ANC rep., Bobby Holmes, at My hope is that with community attention, we can address this issue.”
