Overnight Parking in the District

What are the easiest ways for a visitor to park overnight in the District? Are there any reasonably priced overnight garages? Are the metro parking garages in VA/MD safe for overnight parking? My apartment complex has visitor parking, but it is expensive and first-come-first-serve, so I’m hesitant to rely on this.

I also have a visitor parking pass, but worry about my guests being ticketed if they have not gone through the ROSA exemption process yet. Am I understanding correctly that DC parking enforcement does not ticket for the first sighting of an out-of-state vehicle? In that case, street parking may be a viable option. Does anyone have tips or tricks for overnight street parking?

Close to One Metro Line vs. Kinda Close to Two?

Popville, it’s time to play a game of “Would You Rather!”

Would you rather live really close (say within 3 blocks) of a single metro station, or kinda close to two different lines — say about a 12 minute walk to one and a 15 minute walk to the other? I currently live over in South Bloomingdale and therefore use the NoMa and Shaw stops, but sometimes that 12 minute walk can be fairly daunting in harsh weather. I would love to hear what y’all think!

Woman (Me) Held Against Will in Taxi in Cleveland Park

I want to make DC aware of something terrifying that occurred to me on Friday evening, September 26th, around 10:30 pm, after taking a taxi home to Cleveland Park.

After repeated personal questions and inappropriate comments (eg “I like you,” “will you go on a date with me?”), the cab driver stopped in front of my building, looked me in the eyes, intensely, and told me I was locked inside his cab until I handed over “enough” cash. (He had not turned on the meter for the trip). I was trapped inside and scared, so I complied with his request to hand over cash.

I filed a police report with MPD immediately following the incident, I have consulted an attorney, and I plan to press charges.

I notified the DC taxicab commision of the incident, and I plan to do the same in Maryland- the cab had Maryland plates.

It is outrageous how difficult it can be for women to travel around this city safely.

Man w/ Machete on New York Ave

Shortly after 10pm last night on the 400 Block of New York Ave NW in front of Yale West Apartments are man was running up the sidewalk with a machete. I thought surely someone would call the cops or I would see a report online somewhere. So far, nothing. Anyone else see or hear about this? I hope everyone was safe.
