“Dear PoPville,

Our car was stolen overnight on Monday in Truxton Circle. It was parked on the street right outside our house, last seen when taking the trash out around 10PM, and when we came out on Tuesday morning it had vanished. No broken glass or damage to the cars parked in front of and behind it, which were still in the exact same position. Definitely our first time dealing with this, though we’ve always assumed that on a relatively transitional street, at some point we’d find ourselves dealing with neighborhood crime in one form or another.

Any advice from the community of folks who’ve also gone through this on how to deal with it – besides the obvious (already filed) police report – would be much appreciated… It sort of feels helpless to just wait it out. Also curious to know if there’s been a recent uptick in car theft in the area, or if we were just unlucky?”

“You guys see the collapse at 117 NY Ave yet? The ever-popular Taja Construction pulled the foundation out.

This after months of Taja breaking regs, us calling the cops, us telling him this exact thing would happen.”

From @DDOTDC:

“117 NY Ave, one floor collapsed in building. NY Ave west at North Capitol.”

“6:04 AM – @DCPoliceDept @DC_HSEMA – All lanes open at NY Ave Westbound at North Capitol. Heavy traffic remains.”

“Dear PoPville,

Yesterday when I was at the intersection of North Capitol and New York Ave NW I saw 2 ATV’s driving down the sidewalk. Are these legal in DC??”

I don’t believe they are legal (unless registered with a motorcycle license maybe?) but def. not uncommon either – we last heard about them on H Street, NE in February. Though normally they’re on the streets and not the sidewalks.
