Seen Outside the Old Soldiers Home

Ed. Note: In August 2020 we reported: “Memorandum of Understanding Signed for Armed Forces Retirement Home Redevelopment”, “includes approximately 4.3 million square feet of new development and adaptive reuse of historic buildings, as well as more than 20 acres of publicly-accessible green space”.

“Dear PoPville,

Saw this banner briefly over the weekend along Rock Creek Church Rd, where 5th St NW turns into Park Place.

A good reminder that while the western field of the Old Soldiers Home sits unused by the US government, the residents of Park View (so named because of this field) lost their access to this park decades ago, and continue to have little to no public green space, even as we are seven months into a pandemic that demands social distancing and outdoor gatherings.”
