“Dear PoPville,

Our school, Lee Montessori is trying to build a playground, fill our food bank, and buy library books for our school’s library (since charter schools have to build their own libraries). We are hosting a fundraiser at the Chipotle in Brookland, and anyone who dines there between 4-8PM and either shows them this flyer or mentions the “Lee Montessori fundraiser”, 50% of the proceeds go towards our school.”

What are some other worthy charities you guys have given to today?

12th and Jackson Street, NE

“Dear PoPville,

Just wondering if anyone has any details on the incident that took place around 9:30pm at the intersection of 12th and Jackson Streets NE, in Brookland. What sounded like a transformer explosion was followed by a loss of power, and then a heavy police presence. They appeared to be patrolling by car, motorcycle and helicopter. This may have simply been a response to people being on edge, and the combination of any type of explosion with children out trick or treating. I assumed as much, but was later told by people in the area that there had actually been a shooting preceding the power outage. A random shooting at a busy intersection while children were out trick or treating would be a disturbing thing, so I am curious what the truth of the matter is.”

A reader sent me word just before 10pm last night that 10-12 shots were fired with at least one hitting a transformer. On the Brookland listserv there multiple reports of those who lost power. Updates if/when more is known.

Update from MPD:

“After the malfunctioning of a transformer within the 5th District yesterday evening, several calls were placed from citizens stating they heard multiple gun shots within the district. The PSA encompassing Brookland was one of the PSAs receiving such calls. The area was canvassed during the evening and the following day shift for shell casings, property damage and or injuries. Nothing was found to suggest there was a shooting.”

The suspect was last seen fleeing the scene eastbound on Girard St NE toward 14th St NE. If you have information regarding this incident, please contact the 5th District Detectives Office.

3301-3305 12th Street, NE at Kearny

Well this is a bummer. Thanks to Rebecca for sending an update from Eater DC on plans for ‘Chapter 2’ from the owners of Indigo:

“Indigo co-founder Dinesh Tandon says he and his wife, chef Nidhi Tandon, have split from other family members still working to open a new Indian restaurant at 3301 12th Street NE.

No word on what the substitute Indian restaurant still on the way will be called or when it might debut.”

From Masala Story’s Facebook:

“Hello Brookland,

Bedrooms: 3 Baths: 2.5 Parking: Street Ownership: Fee Simple

Original GDoN post can be seen: here.

The original listing can be seen here: here.

Although only on the market for eleven days, the listing underwent a price reduction from the original $549,000. to $535,000. This quick improvement had its desired effect of catching the attention of presumably more than one interested buyer, sending the settled price relatively close to the original ask (at net $542,000.)

So far into 2017, there have been a total of 23 sales of fee simple houses in the Edgewood neighborhood, which overlaps the legal subdivision of Brookland in NE DC. The neighborhood is within blocks of higher priced Bloomingdale, as well as Red line Metro. (more…)
