1626 North Capitol Street, NW

I’ve been getting tons of messages asking about Old Engine and it occurred to me I never posted the press release I got (I blame the high ABVs on my favorite RAR and Dogfish Head beers) – without further ado:

“The century old firehouse located at 1626 North Capitol Street NW will soon be home to a new restaurant concept along with venue improvements designed for hosting large and small private events. Spark at Engine Co 12 will be a neighborhood cocktail bar and smoke house with a menu of shared platters featuring smoked meats, flavorful composed appetizers, craft cocktails, and a specialty rum menu. Set to open January 2018, the name Spark at Engine Co 12 preserves the legacy of the Firehouse built in 1897 that once served the Bloomingdale community. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

Wanted to bring your attention to a petition some fellow Bloomingdale neighbors and I put together to weigh in on our neighborhood’s debate about historic designation.

The neighborhood has heard some from supporters of the application, but there hasn’t yet been a group representing those who are concerned about the impacts designation will have. We’re worried this application will be voted on before the majority of the neighborhood has a chance to survey the arguments on each side and weigh in..

The petition can be found here.

I’ve outlined my reasons for opposing designation here: (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

Many readers probably know that the cross walk on R st NW and Florida is already not great to begin with — Florida is a busy street and the left turning cars get confused by the diagonal intersection. There’s only one crosswalk instead of two to cross on R, and the pedestrian light only turns to walk if you push the button. If you don’t push the button, the walk sign never comes on, and the green traffic light stays on for only about half the time it would otherwise, so there’s not enough time to cross the street.

About a week ago or so, the crosswalk button got stuck in the “on” position, and now it doesn’t seem to be triggering the walk signal at all. So it’s now impossible to get a crosswalk light to cross Florida. I’ve been running across when the R St traffic light turns green, but only get about halfway across the street by the time it turns yellow.

I wrote to 311 and haven’t heard back. I hope you can bring attention to this dangerous traffic situation!
