My family is looking to buy our first home in DC and as with most DC-related research, I always check your site. Luckily for me, I found a post on your website from 7 years ago about the Lamond-Riggs area. Now 7 years later, I wonder if there’s been any major changes to the neighborhood in terms of safety, walkability, schools, and things to do. A revisit 7 years later would be super appreciated! Thanks so much!”
Thanks to Elle for sending: “From our backyard in Takoma/Lamond Riggs!”
Please send your hauls to [email protected] and let me know what neighborhood it was grown in. Entries will be accepted through Labor Day weekend.

Neighbor pulled a woman out of the car and they were taken to hospital. I heard a police officer report other cars were hit at 17th and A SE. It’s a miracle no one else was hurt.
