A reader reports:

“At around 9:30 AM my husband and I spotted a beautifully colored, exotic-looking bird on the fence surrounding the Turkey Thicket recreation center track in Brookland, NE DC. Looks like it was someone’s escaped pet bird. Near the intersection of Quincy and Michigan NE. We called animal control but the bird flew away before animal control arrived.”

Dennis Junius reported just before 8am:

“another accident at Taylor and 13th place NE. How many more until we get a traffic pattern change or someone gets killed? Been happening for years now with no action.”

Chris Baronner also reported just before 10am:

“@kenyanmcduffie Are we going to wait until a child walking to school at 8:30 in the morning is killed at the intersection of Taylor St NE/13th Place before making 13th Pl one ways or at least a 4-way stop? @PoPville Too many accidents/way too many near misses on daily basis!”

“Umm if you see two shrubs like these suddenly appear in your neighbors yard they might be ours? Woke up and discovered that someone stole them from our front porch last night.”

The original listing can be seen here: here.

Located 1 block into the NE quadrant, below Prospect Hill Cemetery, this large Victorian with three levels above grade, a basement, and parking, presents a bit of a quandary in terms of neighborhood identity. Although the legal subdivision is Brookland, this location is many blocks west of the large lots and single family houses generally associated with that NE neighborhood.

One block west, across North Capitol Street, is clearly identifiable as Bloomingdale. Literally across the street, to the south, from the other side of Rhode Island Avenue, is the Eckington neighborhood. The Stronghold neighborhood, per the Wikipedia entry, is just above, but has a south border of either Bryant or Franklin St NE.

While it is a bit of a sport in DC to argue neighborhood identity, from a real estate perspective this type of location presents a huge marketing challenge. (more…)
