Washington, DC

Thanks to Nick for sending:

“We found these in a hiding spot in the ceiling of our basement during a recent renovation. House is in Lanier Heights, and built in 1905. Guess one of the previous tenants has a bit of a habit. I haven’t been able to find any record of the pharmacy or when it closed. My family has been here since the early 80s, and it was gone by then.”

If you have a photo of a neat find from your house or place of work please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail.com thanks. Please let me know where/what neighborhood you found it in too. Thanks.

“Dear PoPville,

Tuesday evening (3/27) around 8:30pm, I was walking NW on Adams Mill Road toward the zoo, on the west side of the street. I noticed four young men come out of Walter Pierce Park behind me and follow me. Since it was not particularly late, I wasn’t concerned at first, but looking back, I noticed that they all wore parka hoodies and had the hoods pulled up over their heads, and they weren’t speaking. The street was getting darker as I walked down the hill past Ontario Road, and I decided against putting my earbuds in so I could focus on what was happening behind me, as it appeared they were walking quickly, catching up to me.
