On June 20th we learned about the man who had planted flowers at the Dupont North metro entrance. They are gone now. The Washington Post reported:

Metro tore out the foliage without waiting to solicit the neighborhood’s opinion, as it said it had planned to do.

“We want to meet with the community and see what the community would like. We will move forward with their wishes, as long as they are reasonable, sustainable and safe,” Michael McBride, manager of Metro’s Art in Transit Program, said June 21.

No meetings have taken place since then.

And in other Dupont North entrance news – the center escalator is closed until October:
