Apartment Storage Costs

My building is adding storage units in a dry, secure basement room. Bins are approx. 5x5x8 feet tall and 5x5x4 feet. What’s the going rate for storage in your apartment or condo building? Uhaul self storage charges about $90 for the large sized storage bin.

Excellent MASSAGE therapist Found!!

As a former LMT – I have had a hard time finding a really good one in DC; but I have now.

I highly recommend Emily Brown at Freed Bodyworks – {it’s just past the burt Frager’s at about 13th/PA Ave SE.} I haven’t had a massage like this in years. I finally have mobility back in my shoulder. This isn’t a one-time fixes all massage – but a helluva lot of progress. I’m so happy.

A key for me is always someone who was NOT trained at PTMI, and this LMT was trained out West. Noticeable difference, superb technique.

Group Meeting Regarding Recent Shootings

Hi,

I am heart-broken, frustrated, scared, and emotionally tired from the recent shootings that are taking place locally as well as nationally. With Thursday night’s shooting, which occurred at a Louisiana movie theatre, two women were killed by an individual who hated women, minorities, and liberals.

What can we do? What ideas and solutions can we discuss, address, and take action so that women and minorities feel safe going to a church, a movie, or our work? I have some ideas for D.C., and I would be eager to hear yours.

I will be organizing an open discussion at an U-Street location on Tuesday July 28th at 7:00pm, in efforts to discuss what DMV residents can do to address this gun and hate violence. This meeting is open to all and I encourage those who are interested in attending to please spread the word about it. I will provide the address to those who RSVP to srose1291@gmail.com: please do so by Tuesday at 1pm.

Respectfully,
Samantha Rose

Hey popville folks,

I found a set of car keys on the sidewalk at 13th and Fairmont yesterday. The big key is to a Volkswagen of some kind.

If these are yours, please let me know! I can be reached at glowhouse3110 at g mail.

Please include a description of the other keys or some way I can verify these are yours.

Thanks,
Dave

Is NCC a scam charity?

I keep getting calls from The National Children Center asking if I have any items to donate. I was about to give a cool old roll top desk to Goodwill and said they could have it. It’s been sitting in my driveway waiting for them to come for three days but they never come. Every day I call and they apologize and reschedule, but every day the desk is still there.

Now, the desk has been sitting outside for several days and is getting ruined. Anyone else dealt with these idiots?

Fighting NIMBYism

I went to a civic association meeting last night, and it seemed like everybody there was universally opposed any dense development for fear that it’ll block people’s sunlight and/or increase traffic for residents (who apparently drive around their own neighborhood for some reason?). Simultaneously, they lament when businesses close because of high rent and lack of customers.

I believe dense development, if executed responsibly, is the key to getting people out of their cars, lowering real estate costs, and increasing customer- (and tax-) bases. The opposition is irrational and vitriolic. My wife and I want to be civically engaged, but I don’t think we want to make a habit of arguing with roomfulls of people that just aren’t going to get it.

Is there any organized force against the NIMBYism? Should we go it alone and just write dissents to our ANC, CM, and the zoning board? Is this an especially effective strategy? It’s a shame, because it’s easy to sit back and let the developers take on the fight themselves, but it seems like their buildings are constantly being trimmed down and scaled back because of community opposition, and we probably only have one chance to rebuild these neighborhoods!

I’m specifically talking about the Edgewood/Brentwood/Brookland/Langdon area, where there’s a lot of development activity, but I’d be happy to join a District-wide urbanism effort as well.

Stolen Fuji!

My good friend’s Fuji Gran Tourer SE was stolen from Van Dorn metro on 7/16 @ 5pm.. It’s probably about a 58-60cm & has fenders and a Velocity Sparticus wheelset instead of the original 10 speed wheelset.

If you see it on the used marketplace or riding around give a shout! Thanks!

Looking for an accountant in DC!

Hey popville-

I’m a recent first time homeowner, and soon-to-be first time wife, getting married at the end of the summer. My fiancee and I are looking for a qualified, yet affordable, accountant to advise us on various tax issues for our 2015 taxes. For example, whether to file jointly or separately for the year, various condo-related questions, etc. If anyone has a good referral for someone who is well-versed in these issues, please send him/her my way. Thanks!
