My close friends and several family members were all walking from my apt on H ST NE, north towards Union Market, to cap off a great weekend of celebrating my doctoral graduation. Sadly, as we were about to cross Florida Ave, these 2 or 3 teens with a gun robbed two in my large group of their belongings.

On Monday, May 15th, 2023 at approximately 7:30 am, my four and a half-month old puppy was attacked by another dog in Swampdoodle Park in NoMa.

Luckily, my dog was at my feet, and with the help of an unidentified good samaritan, they pulled the dog off of mine, stopping the attack. Read More

Ed. Note: If I may be so bold, may I suggest the name – Dave Thomas Circle. Alternatively I’d accept Wendy’s Way.
From the NoMa BID:
“The reconfiguration of the Florida Avenue/New York Avenue NE intersection, often referred to as the “Virtual Circle” or “Dave Thomas Circle” is scheduled to begin later this year. This intersection has been a chronic challenge for the District for generations.
In addition to improving safety and navigation for pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers, this project will improve the overall experience for everyone by bringing three new public spaces to the area immediately adjacent to the intersection. In advance of the delivery of these new spaces, the NoMa Business Improvement District (NoMa BID) is partnering with the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) and inviting members of the community to suggest one overall name for the trio of new public spaces.
