Block Party in North Country and Stead Park Fun

Thanks to a reader for sending the word:

“MPD is sponsoring a block party in the 500 block of Kennedy Street this Friday from 4-8pm.”

I remember a previous block party hosted by MPD wasn’t very well publicized so for the folks up in North Country this sounds like fun.

“Dear PoP,

I snapped this image of my 2-year-old at Stead Park (16th and P, NW) … I thought it was kinda cool. Amazing how many kids are running around the neighborhood now … compared to 10 years ago.”

    When I worked on that block in the 1990s there were always crowds of African-American teenagers on the basketball court and kids from the Methodist(?) daycare you can kind of see off to the right in that picture. After the Clintons left they closed the daycare.
