Washington, DC

Ed. Note: I think it’s just a shortcut to the construction site staging area on Piney Branch. Or is it something more nefarious?

“Dear PoPville,

Just moved to the bottom of the hill on 14th and Taylor. Been seeing TONS of men go in and out of the woods off of Piney Branch where Rock Creek, Taylor, Arkansas all converge.

Not sure what they’re doing, doesn’t ever seem sexual or violent. Hated to do this, but called the cops when I saw one (when he was solo) looking through my bathroom window from down below in the woods.

Just now, I saw three men coming out of the woods from the same spot in my back alley off of Shepard.

What is this? Drugs? Prostitution ring? Homelessness? Mental illness?”
