I wanted to share a cautionary story about an incident that happened in Dupont Friday afternoon. I was walking my dog on S street between 18th and New Hampshire when I saw two guys attack and assault another guy halfway down the block. They pushed him down on the ground and were punching him in the face over and over again. Read More

Anyone else in the area have an issue with water pressure around 14th/R and 15th/R? After a bunch of work was done laying pipes on R street (don’t know if it’s actually related), my water pressure went down. I guess the work on R street has been going on from March to August/September. And during that time up until now, the pressure has changed. If you have a similar issue in the area, what have you done to fix the problem?”
