From an email:
“Locale Workspace wants to know if Kennedy Street residents want a multi-use communal co-working space. One of the co-founders has lived in the neighborhood for over 4 years and wants to expand their current concept into a new space that embodies more communal access with other components in addition to co-working such as coffee/tea, food, books, events, etc.
The survey can be found here.”

“This Saturday and Sunday starting at 9am ANXO will be showing the Vuelta a España penultimate and last stages at their Brightwood Park location (711 Kennedy Street, NW.) Spanish based Cidery showing a Cycling race to bike-loving DC? Good way to start the day!”
From ANXO’s Facebook event:
“Attention cycling fans! We are showing La Vuelta a España at our tasting room starting at 9am on Saturday, September 9th and Sunday September 10th. Ride your bike over and grab brunch and a cider and take in the excitement of Spanish cycling!”
This house is located at 5219 5th Street, NW. The MRIS listing says:
“Investor Special! Estate Sale. Selling As-Is. Needs full renovation. Currently occupied. DO NOT DISTURB the occupants. Listing agent must accompany for showings. Check open house schedule for available times to view.”
You can see more photos here.
Ed. Note: I’m really at a loss for why they would include so many photos of the interior that are clearly not good. As the home is currently occupied, this whole listing is just very very sad.
This 2 bed/1 bath is going for $399,000.

A reader reports at approximately 2:45pm:
“All the kids OK, but they are assessing any structural damage. Apparently the driver was speeding through the alley. Another car was also hit (not pictured.)”

Streets Market and Cafe has now opened their 2nd location at 13th and Mass. Ave, NW. They opened their first DC location at 14th and Belmont Street, NW back in 2014.

“*****ANNOUNCEMENT: The Kennedy Street location is officially closed. Visit us at our new location 300 Riggs Rd. in September of 2017.*****”
I ran across some rather disturbing graffiti in the alley between Gallatin and Hamilton streets. Although the graphical representation of a noose isn’t the same thing as the physical nooses recently found at local schools, churches and museums, it’s nevertheless disturbing. It’s hard to interpret this as anything but the mark of hateful and poisonous ideals. I don’t know whether this particular defacement is meant to intimidate the residents of the property where it was found or is a random placement, but it’s troubling all the same, particularly as this is a residential neighborhood and the paint seems to be relatively fresh. I’m sending so that those in Ward 4 can remain watchful for individuals intent on divisive behavior within our midst.”
Any other possible interpretations?
A reader reports an incredibly disturbing event that happened 3am last night around Jefferson and Kennedy Street, NW. Ed. Note: I have the video but am only posting this still because I want to blur out the face.
“…a half naked woman was banging on my door at 3am. A man coaxed/pulled her away. I called the cops, they drove by once. Saw nothing. I went and checked my security cameras and got footage. Then called 911 2 more times. They never returned. I gave up 50 minutes later. I went out and looked and couldn’t find anyone. I was up until 4:10am waiting and they never came back. I told the operator I had footage of this. It’s insane.”
Last night a reader reported around 10pm:
“possible shooting at 5th and Jefferson NW Street closed & cop looking for casings (looks like it at least).”
Other residents have been inquiring about the incident on the listserv, will update when/if MPD responds.
Also this morning readers write:
“There were at least 10 police cars on the corner and they had blocked off the Randolph Street coming off of 14th St NW. Any idea what’s going on over there? They had a fancy looking guy in a suit walking towards what I assumed was the site of the incident.”
