14th and R Street, NW

A reader reports last night:

“Went by Red Light tonight and it was…closed! No sign on the front or anything. Is it closed for good?? What of the fried gnocci??”

Ed. Note: Monday hours are listed as open from 5pm-1am.

A commenter reports:

“From someone who used to work for that restaurant group, “They always close on Mondays during the winter, but you’d think they would advertise that…” So, who knows…. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯”

Hmm, this is curious. (more…)

Run asks:

“sitting on the edge of your seat to hear sirens so you can figure out if that noise was gunshots or… something else”

Max echoes the query this morning: “anyone hear what sounded like gunshots in the area of 9th and P NW last night?”

Vera (and others) reported around 12:45am:

“4 gunshots heard at 11th and O St NW”

Morgan replied:

“I saw a cop turn onto N from 11th … but not with any urgency so idk”

Update from the victim

“I was actually the one carjacked. Few minor details that need correcting. It was at the corner of O and Vermont, just south of the circle. My car is a dark gray Subaru Crosstrek with DC plates. They came up on me when I was parking (just about to get out) and we’re armed. They also stole my phone. I’ve been parking on the street for years and it’s frequently trafficked by people walking their dogs, so I’m shocked it happened at all.”

“Dear PoPville,

Didn’t see anything on the MPD twitter account, so thought your readers would be interested to know. There was a car jacking on Vermont Avenue and N street in Logan Circle around 7:15pm last night. (more…)

Ed. Note: This is the old Whitman Walker development.

Update from the DC Preservation League:

“The existing façade was significantly reworked in the 1920s and again in the 40s, and the result was a mishmash of masonry that was severely compromised on the backside when they opened the wall up.

structural engineer assess it and determined that they couldn’t retain it in place. They applied 4 a modified permit to take it down, salvaging all the intact stone pieces (belt courses, jack arched lintels, etc.) & will reconstruct based on laser scans and reusing the old pieces”

“Dear PoPville,

I was passing by the 1700 block of 14th street, NW in Logan Circle area and noticed the historic facade of the DeSoto – Plymouth auto dealer was torn down. Does anyone know what happened?” (more…)
