AlertDC reported around 10am:

“DDOT reports a cyclist struck at 14th and I St NW. At this time, southbound 14th St NW (all lanes) and I St NW lanes 2 and 3 are blocked. Please use an alternate route.”

A reader reports:

“The “police activity” that happened on 14th and I this morning: bus hit a pedestrian and possibly dragged him. Two employees at my job were witnesses and haven’t shown up to work yet to give more details.

Update: was a cyclist, that was just what we heard when I mentioned pedestrian. Person is going to be okay, so that is a good thing. My colleagues were first on scene and are pretty shaken up so heading home. Cyclist was dragged for a while and bus driver did not notice/see that he was dragging a cyclist.

DC Police Traffic now reports:

“UPDATE: Accident 14th & I Street, NW CLEAR ALL LANES OPEN”

1275 First St, NE

Wowza. We really do have a lot of coffee options around town. Two more Peet’s coming to prime locations. EaterDC reports:

“The new locations will sit near big grocers: at 1275 First Street NE, north of Harris Teeter, and next to the new Whole Foods at 528 H Street NE.”

The NoMa location at 1275 First Street, NE was formerly home to Tynan Coffee & Tea who closed back in November 2015.

528 H Street, NE via Streetsense

The H Street, NE location is the former home of Taste of Jamaica which closed back in June 2016.

When Pete’s Coffee opened their first District location back in 2014 we learned: “The company will open 23 new stores in a phased rollout.”

“Dear PoPville,

I live in Brookland and absolutely love it. However, my neighbor across the alleyway does not have running water. As a result, he regularly urinates in the alleyway. He also has guests who have in the past urinated in the alley and defecated in a neighbor’s backyard (not even his own, which somehow bothered me more). I’ve talked to him about this to no avail – the house has a huge overdue water bill that he can’t pay, and it’s way too high for me to consider paying it for my own sanity. I contacted DCRA but they never sent anyone. Any thoughts on how to handle this? Is this even legal, to live without running water?”
