    No amount of streetscaping is ever going to make this “neighborhood” feel less cold and uninviting.

      It is all relative. I’ve worked in this neighborhood for 11 years. I can tell you, it is significantly more warm and inviting than it was when I started working here.

      you say cold and uninviting, i say cool and sleek. this sculpture is a great addition, looking forward to seeing more art in my neighborhood.

      Then stay away! Nobody wants to listen to your negativity and complaints about everything. Move on or keep it quiet please!

    I think it looks pretty cool, but what is the deal with the pharmacy in that CVS closing at 6pm? Can’t we have until at least 7pm to get home from work?

  • This new sculpture was created by NADAA of Boston, and is called “Torqued Tensility.” It was funded by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, NoMa BID, and Principal Real Estate Investors (owners of 1200 First Street NE). The base doubles as a bench, and my kids have enjoyed crawling on this for the past few weeks!

    that sculpture looks perfect for climbing and/or re-enacting Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

    Really like it. Fits well with the look and style of the new buildings.
    So much nicer than that weird new one on the New York Avenue bridge over the rail tracks.
    Each side of that one looks like a modern crashing Chinese dragon with weird Victorian-esque light poles all around it. Talk about a clash of design and looks…
