Horse’s Ass Award Nominee – South West Corner of 9th and Q St, NW

Every time I walk past this corner I naively think there may be some progress. Sadly, the only progress I’ve recently noticed is a proper boarding up of the windows. This one is not far from another nominee the Carter G Woodson house which also has seen little progress. Though fortunately there are reports that the big one across the street (north east corner) that used to be painted with the murals including “Bienvenu a Shaw Le Slum Historique” has been purchased. I’ll be sure to update with photos as renovations take place.

Hopefully that will encourage someone to buy/restore this one as well.
