From a press release:
“The inaugural LeDroit Park House and Garden Tour, a showcase of the neighborhood’s unique architecture, history, and diversity, will be held October 28, 2018, from 1-5 pm. The tour introduces visitors to LeDroit Park’s development from its time as an exclusive enclave, through its heyday as a center of African American intelligentsia, to the present day.
A historic neighborhood since 1974, LeDroit Park was originally designed as one of the first suburbs of DC and retains a tranquil character while remaining close to the bustle of the U Street corridor. Visitors will enjoy the interiors and gardens of Victorian homes, rowhouses, and contemporary developments. (more…)

I believe this location had been closed at least a year, right? Thai-Xing opened their second location, 2020 9th St, NW, near 9:30 Club back in 2014. I’ve always felt that the original location was superior but that could be just cause I’m an old dude. Anyway, great news!!

I wanted to give you a bit of background on the development at the corner of 2nd and S Sts NW. Late last year this church was sold to Kadida Development for the purpose of redeveloping the site into 8 townhomes – after numerous hearings including an attempt by folks who are not directly impacted by the construction to designate the church “historic” the project won approval and the developer started to move ahead with demo of the site – in his defense he has kept me and other directly impacted neighbors up to speed about how the project will go…and in spite of a few issues things have been ok. The impacted neighbors have asked for a few things that the developer has not provided – proof of insurance, finalized plans, promises about easements and a few other things that I will not bother going into. All in all this was going somewhat according to plan…until last weekend. (more…)
