Dear PoPville – Is Newsom Ever Going to Open on H Street?

1110 H Street, NE during H Street festival in 2012

“Dear PoPville,

Any idea what happened to this place? It never did open! And still looks almost ready to go, with chalk on the chalkboards, etc.”

Newsom opened briefly during the H Street festival in 2012 and ever since has been a complete mystery. Back in 2012 the normally accurate @HStreetDC_ said they would open in October of that year. Last night I spoke to a few folks from H Street and nobody had a clue what was going on. Late Monday night Newsom’s window was damaged by a car running into it. Updates when more info is known about their plans.
