Washington, DC

“Dear PoPville,

I was wondering if the community could help me solve a mystery. Three weeks ago I noticed this eery flashing red light in the window on California Street, NW. I think it’s on 24/7 but is only truly visible dusk / night.

At first I didn’t pay it too much mind… But it’s been WEEKS now.

I feel like if someone were in the unit they would’ve replaced the bulb by now, or at the very least turned off whatever fixture this is. The light’s red color and its flickering nature is like something out of a horror movie.

Is this only creepy to me? Is it worth trying to get in touch with the residents to have them check on their neighbor?”
