I live in a new apartment building in Brookland/Edgewood. Recently a building nearby installed some crazy bright flood lights on their roof. It’s ridiculous how bright they are. They turn on and off, and shine into our apartment. It’s very annoying.
I found the building on Google Maps, and called the management company, who brushed me off and said it wasn’t them and it was the building next door. I thought maybe I got it wrong, and confirmed the address again, and verified that I had the correct one. When I tried to call back, they stopped picking up their phone. (more…)

“Spotted in Edgewood: horseman selling “ice cold Texas water”
We’ve had many horse sightings over the years but this is the first time I’ve ever heard of a guy selling water from one. Awesome. So very, very awesome. Anyone else spot this guy?
