This is a painful horse’s ass nominee, from ANC Rep Jonah Goodman, with it’s own website:

“Welcome to 414 Shepherd St

This is the story of what happens when development goes wrong and the District of Columbia is unable to respond. This is all happening right now at 414Shepherd Street, NW, Washington DC.

View the full Property Information Verification System Report (PIVS).

The current significant issues are:

Structural damage to both neighboring properties
Erosion under neighboring properties and in neighboring yards due to both lack of foundation and lack of soil retention
Standing water in the basement of the property
Large hole / hazard in the front yard only mitigated by one piece of caution tape
Health issues / concerns to pregant neighbor as children of neighbor
Open property in front and backyard used to dump trash
General neighborhood blight”
