“Dear PoPville,

This morning as I was unlocking a Jump Bike on the bike racks outside the Woodley Park Metro, a woman who was locking her own bike lectured me on how it was improper for bike shares to be left on the racks because the racks were for people like her who own their bikes. She went on to claim, as if she knew this for a fact, that the city would not give Jump Bikes a contract after the current trial period because their bikes take up rack space. She then walked away.

I have no idea if what she is saying is true, but I am a big fan of Jump Bikes since the electric motor makes my uphill commute tolerable. DC is a hilly city, and a muggy city for much of the year, so many of us stand to bike more with the electric bikes as an option. Bottom line, I would be very sad if Jump Bikes couldn’t get a contract. (more…)

You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in D.C.

From Lonely Planet:

“The US is a dynamic country, and its most popular cities to travel to are constantly changing, in large part due to the sharing economy. Neighborhoods once avoided are suddenly hot spots for tech companies, emerging artists and entrepreneurs.

Following Lonely Planet’s list of the coolest neighborhoods in the world – which included Frelard in Seattle and Sunset Park in New York – the travel media company asked their US-based travel experts and Lonely Planet Locals for the hottest up-and-coming neighborhoods in their cities:

  • Capitol Riverfront & Yards Park, Washington DC “One of DC’s most recent reincarnations, the former Navy Yard, a commercial wharf in the 19th Century, has been completely overhauled. Formerly one of the grittier parts of the US capital, the riverfront area began to change in 2008, when it became home to Nationals Park, DC’s major league baseball stadium. These days, there are more reasons to visit here than for sport alone; the entire waterfront precinct now features an attractive boardwalk, small riverside parks and a handful of top-notch eateries.” – Kate Armstrong

“Dear PoPville,

I was curious if you ever knew of anyone being hit my a garbage truck? I contacted Tenleytown Trash after the incident and sent them an email and left a voicemail. Just curious if anyone else has had a similar experience:

Good Afternoon, I wanted to contact you because this morning [Saturday] one of the Tenleytown Trash trucks nearly ran over myself and a good friend of mine. The truck was heading West on U street from 14th towards 15th and made an illegal left hand turn onto Waverly Place NW where my friend and I were walking. Despite seeing us the truck turned into us forcing us up against the wall of the alley screaming for them to stop. Were we not so thin we would have been hit. The truck then kept at the high rate of speed and kept going. I would greatly appreciate someone contacting me regarding this incident. The truck sped down the alleyway and I did not chase after it because my friend was shaking violently. Thank you for your time.”
