    Pretty sure this was in the alley behind that rundown small stretch of rowhouses there, which is a drug hotspot. Police/Ambulances respond to calls here just about daily, sometimes multiple times a day. Lots of verbal fights out front as well.

      Sounds right. I think a couple have ‘For Sale’ sign, and one is on Redfin for 365k!

    This is where I witnessed 6 or more bikes being dropped off by a construction truck and brought into a house. Bad news over there.

    Shuld raise the rents of Ivy City or at least justify the outrageous prices of this metro cut-off developer’s neighborhood. Urban violence chic anyone? Get all the dangers of 14th st circa 2005 plus the rents of 14th street circa 2016.
