Thanks to Natalie for sending: “The Chick-Fil-A (on the former Taco Bell/KFC lot) is now open in Fort Totten NE. Business looks brisk. Unsurprisingly, there’s now a bottleneck with cars trying to make a U-turn on 3rd to get over to the restaurant, as well as another bottleneck trying to turn from 3rd into the parking lot (despite the double drive-through lines).” Read More


“Dear PoPville,

We live in NE (Ft.Totten/Lamond Riggs area) and when my husband was taking our dog out he found these empty 9mm shell casings in our backyard. We are not gun owners and we have no idea where they came from. That said, we were wondering if there was anything we should do with these other than just dispose of them, like notify law enforcement or some other entity? I’m sure this sort of thing happens a lot all over DC and we figured we’d see if anyone else has any thoughts on this.”
