Dunbar High School Track Open to Public?

“Construction at Dunbar High School’s track looks like its complete. Anyone know if it will be open to the public at all?

I know Cardozo’s is open in the mornings, and I was hoping Dunbar would be the same, but so far everything is still locked up.”

“The facade of the building must be kept, but demo has started on the back of 57 N St NW. The murals facing the back of the artists’ studio on O St are goners….”

“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?”
