A Big Day For Petworth

Georgetown Currents discarded along Wisconsin Avenue, originally uploaded by ANC 3F-04.

Feb. 4th, 2009. Mark it. This is the day Petworth started receiving the Northwest Current. My street all received copies on our doorsteps for the first time. Do you get the paper in Columbia Heights? Shaw/U Street? Mt. Pleasant/Adams Morgan? I’m wondering how far the new distribution goes.

I think this is great news and not just because of this. The newspaper doesn’t have a good online presence but consistently produces good articles. For example in today’s paper there are articles titled:

“City set to approve Upshur dog park”

“Foreclosure claims Babe’s project” (This is the one on Wisconsin Ave in Tenyltown that used to be the pool hall.)

“Apple wins ANC nod for Georgetown site”

and “U Street renovation wins green honor”.

Today is a good day.
