Dear PoP – Laundromat at 11th and Rhode Island Ave, NW Closes

“Dear PoP,

I’m one of those individuals not blessed with a washer and dryer in my apartment building, and my local laundromat at 11th Street and Rhode Island Ave, NW mysteriously closed, stripped bare in a matter of days. There seems to be a drought of laundromats in Logan Circle… searching online hasn’t been much help, and I’m not the kind of person who wishes to spend exorbitant amounts of money at a dry cleaner. Have any options for a simple wash and dry, or perhaps a cheap laundry service?”

Thanks to all the readers who sent in word and photos. Does anyone happen to know if there are plans for this corner? I’ll be sure to keep my eye on it. It’s a great location – so I hope/imagine it won’t sit vacant for too long.

I think there is still one available at 11th and M St, NW. That’s probably a good alternative. For those that live nearby where will you use?

Back in the day we spoke about some good ones in Mt. Pleasant.

I’ve always thought the deal at 2326 Ontario Road, NW (see below) was the best:
