I feel like the person who invented this should be famous. So simple yet so effective. Genius!


Anyway, that former parking garage (and briefly part of planet pet) is looking good. Soon to be Reed Row:

“Located at the intersection of Champlain Street and Florida Avenue, Reed Row is perfectly aligned among three of D.C.’s most popular dining, entertainment, cultural and nightlife districts. Situated at the southern tip of Adams Morgan, where an abundance of restaurants and retailers await, the building is also within walking distance of the many amenities found in Dupont Circle, as well as the bustling 14th and U Street corridors.”

    Living up to my name: It’s ‘chute,’ not ‘shoot.’

    • Damn it – I even looked this up on google! So at least a lot of people make the same mistake as me :) Fixing now!

        Its an alternative spelling, you will not be deterred!

    Straight out of Home Alone 2: Lost in New York! Cinematic masterpiece!

    They’re purpose built adjustable work-site chutes, not re-purposed garbage cans.

    • Visual: I’m smashing my head into a table.

    • EG

      Seems like the first version was probably repurposed cans so I am sure the genius inventor is still out there
