Dear PoPville – What’s the Story with the old Mayfair Apartment Building in Mt. Pleasant

IMG_4109

“Dear PoPville,

There is a SUPER creepy apartment building at 1647 Lamont St. NW.

The glass doors at the entrance reveal a front vestibule that is completely crowded with plants (which are all well maintained and thriving, so SOMEONE must be taking care of them). Also, if you look closely, there’s a mannequin that sits at the top of the stairs that wears a NEW CHANGE OF CLOTHES EVERY DAY.

What’s even creepier is every accessible entrance has two very prominently displayed cameras. I’ve attached a few pictures.

I’ve never seen anyone enter or leave the building.

I found this forum thread though it hasn’t been updated since 2011.

Does anyone have any additional information about this building? It really gives me the heeby jeebies.”
