“Dear PoPville,

My neighbor and I have been in a heated (ok, casual) debate about the north boundary of Petworth. The Brightwood Park and Petworth wikipedia pages give conflicting information for the north border of Petworth.

Brightwood south border according to brightwood park wiki page:

Emerson Street NW to the south.

Petworth north border according to Petworth wiki page:

to the north by Hamilton Street NW

Do you have any official take on this so we can stop the madness?”

OK, OK, OK, here it goes – when I moved to Petworth in 2003 most folks I spoke to said that the north border of Petworth was firmly considered Kennedy Street though some people pushed it all the way to Missouri. From Kennedy Street to Missouri was considered Brightwood Park and north of Missouri was/is Brightwood proper. So, by order of the Prince of Petworth I officially declare the northern boundary of Petworth to be Kennedy Street, NW. Having said that, call it what you will – you people drive me crazy : ) As for the southern border

“Dear PoPville,

I’m planning to do some landscaping work at my house come spring. Both the front and rear of my property have old, nasty chain-link fences surrounding them.

One set of neighbors have already installed privacy fencing along the back, leaving the chain-link inside the privacy fence. I’m sure if I asked them if they cared if I removed the chain-link (both in the front and back) along that property line, they’d be happy to have me do so. I do plan to ask them, but I expect the answer to be nothing short of an enthusiastic “please remove it,” no matter who actually owns the fence.

On the other side, the only thing separating the yards both in the front and back is that chain-link fence. The neighbors don’t have a fence around their front yard at all, so I’m sure they’d be fine with me pulling the existing fence out and replacing it with something nicer (I have a dog, so I do want the front yard fenced in), and, yes, I will ask before doing this anyway. But in the back, I’m not sure how to tell whose fence it is or how to go about negotiating whether to remove it or just put a privacy fence inside of it and leave it in place. (more…)
