    These are awesome. The Petworth one is pretty dated though… Seeing the owner of Moroni Bros in it made me sad!

    • Petworth dude

      I showed the Petworth video to my parents back in 2011 to convince them that I wasn’t moving into the hood.

      The Brookland one is dated too. Though it’s cool to see. I forget sometimes how much the area has changed in just a few short years.

  • Not too bad. I’m surprised they didn’t mention the Giant (or if they did when they showed the condos above it I missed it) or the forthcoming Whole Foods. Proximity to grocery stores is typically a huge factor for many homebuyers. Although it would be nice if H Street NE had an option on the eastern end as well.

      safeway and aldi

      • Those are on Bladensburg, not H Street.

        • brookland_rez

          Those are not that far from H St though. And the street car line will pass right in front.

  • Let’s say you live at 12th & H St, approximately. It takes you longer to walk all the way uphill to that Safeway, through the starburst intersection, than it would to walk to where the planned Whole Foods or Giant is. Aldi is even farther. If you live right on the edge of 14th & H St that might be an option, but for the rest of the neighborhood it’s really not a viable one, in my opinion, unless you just happen to like those grocery stores for some reason. Would have been nice to see them put something in there on Maryland with all the construction going on.

      “all the way uphill to that Safeway”

      yeah that hil is a killer!

      • Not everyone is youthful, or in good health. There are lots of elderly people who ride my bus in this area to which a hill like that poses a good challenge.

  • h st ll

    Well done.

    Not necessarily places I would’ve chosen, and lacks on showing west end options, but still excellent.
