1330 New Hampshire Ave, NW
This picture is from Friday. Look closely at the construction worker and you will see them removing items from the ground.
I live at 1330 New Hampshire Ave. NW and have a bird’s eye view of Sonny Bono Park, or what is left of it.
[The park was established in 1998 after Sonny Bono’s death by Bono family friend Geary Simon, a local real estate developer. He approached the D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation’s Park Partners program and paid $25,000 of his own money to revitalize an unused 800-square-foot (74 m2) triangle of grass.]
The construction that has been going on for over a year has now on New Hampshire touched down in the park, and on Friday it looks like the construction workers uncovered the time capsule with Sonny’s “official Congressional cufflinks, and a mug from his string of Bono’s Restaurants. Thought you should know the landscape and contents of the park may never be the same. I wonder where Geary Simon is now and what should be done with the memorabilia uncovered this morning!”
