The original GDoN post for this modest home in the Michigan Park neighborhood of NE DC received a good number of comments that you can see here.

Considering that the comments were not particularly enthusiastic, it is very interesting to note that the home sold for nearly 9% above asking price and went under contract within 1 day of listing. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

My husband’s beautiful bike was stolen from our porch on Allison Street in Michigan Park in the early morning on 5/16. Unfortunately, only the back wheel was locked–not the frame–so the guy took the bike and left the wheel (but came prepared with his own back wheel!). It is a matte green Momentum iNeed STREET bike with a bright orange Yepp child carrier on the back and metal basket in front. If you happen to see this bike (or the thief in the video), please contact me at tracy.higgens(at)gmail.com. We’ve filed a police report and learned our lesson on proper locking.”
