Front Bike Wheel Stolen off Locked up Bike:

“I had my bike locked to a bike rack with a U-lock near 17th and I St NW yesterday afternoon for about 3 hours. When I returned to my bike around 4 PM, the front wheel had been stolen. Major Bummer. Given the busy location, I’m surprised at the audacity of the thief to do this in the middle of the afternoon. Just a service announcement to make you secure your wheels in addition to your frame when locking up your bike.”

Historic Apts in DC:

“I’m considering moving to a different apt. this summer and would like to know if anyone has any suggestions for neat loft/historic apartments in the city. I’ve spent some time browsing blog sites that showcase great apartments in old factories, warehouses, schools, etc. in cities like Detroit, Pittsburgh, and Chicago. These cities being former industrial centers have more of these types of buildings, but I’d like to find something similar in DC if possible. Anyone have any suggestions of an older building with character? Thanks for your help!”
