Dear PoP – Piano Help and Streetcars Schedule

by Prince Of Petworth January 22, 2010 at 2:30 pm 11 Comments


“Dear PoP,

I am being given my grandmother’s lovely old grand piano. It needs some fairly extensive repairs, and of course I will need a regular tuner. And I need to move it long distance from NC. Recommendations for piano repair, tuner, and/or movers? I have gotten a number of reasonable-sounding quotes for movers, but I don’t know of any that have used them. Anyone had bad experiences with local piano people? Has anyone used Georgetown Piano for repairs?”

We had a discussion on moving companies here.


“Sometimes you report on street cars development in H St but can you please find out the schedule for street cars along GA ave? Last I heard Phase 1 street car development (H St/Anacostia/Georgia Ave) will be complete by 2011, but how is that possible when they haven’t even put in rails for GA Ave? Me and my roommates all just really want this project to happen for our peeps in Petworth, so if we’re informed, maybe we can work on making sure it happens?”

You can read about the planned streetcar phases here. But if memory serves, they still have to decide how these are going to be powered, with overhead wires etc.
