37th Street, NW
Well it’s been a little over a month since we migrated the site and I just want to take youre pulse a bit. We’ve migrated over many more of the old comments but that is still my number 1 priority – to get them all moved over. So that is definitely still happening. Since I understand not everyone can access disqus (the new commenting system) I just wanted to do a quick poll so that all can respond. Thanks for your patience while we work out the kinks.
Looks like a Decoy right?

Enjoy the best this week:
Streets of Washington, written by John DeFerrari, covers some of DC’s most interesting buildings and history. John is the author of Historic Restaurants of Washington, D.C.: Capital Eats, published by the History Press, Inc. and also the author of Lost Washington DC.
Providence Hospital on Capitol Hill, circa 1910 (author’s collection).
Just a few blocks south of the Library of Congress once stood the city’s largest and most prestigious hospital, founded in the urgent, needy days at the dawn of the Civil War. Because the modern Providence Hospital is now located in Brookland, it can be easy to forget how important this institution was for the rapidly growing central city in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Providence pioneered modern hospital practices at a time when Washington sorely needed them. (more…)

“We have a “V Street” style popup situation over here in Brookland at 10th and Evarts St, NE. Hoping it’s not as hideous when it’s done. Went from a Basilica view to probably vinyl siding.”

“New kittens in Columbia Heights!
Hudson (grey) and Sabine (black and white) are two kittens my husband and I just adopted from a wonderful foster family through the Humane Rescue Alliance! They’re littermates, though they look nothing alike. They love pouncing, play fighting, and snuggling up together for naps!
Obligatory plug: it’s kitten season! Please consider adopting a cat or two through the Humane Rescue Alliance or another reputable animal rescue. If you’d rather get kittens than adult cats, please consider getting two. They’ll keep each other company, teach each other to play-fight without being too rough, and you’ll save two lives instead of one. Plus, is there anything cuter than seeing a pair of kitty siblings snuggled up together? I think not!”
I noticed that very recently the crosswalk countdown timers now only display the countdown numbers when the “don’t walk” hand begins to flash. The countdown timer used to begin as soon as the “walk” was lit up. Not sure if this is everywhere or just downtown (where I both live and work). Any idea why they made the change?”
Wowza thanks to Mark for sending. Well here’s to hoping. What do you think a ticket’ll cost?
