I noticed that you distinguish between Capitol Hill, Hill East, H St NE, and Navy Yard. I was wondering, do you have a precise set of boundaries to divide these places from each other? For example, where exactly does Capitol Hill become Hill East? And where the dividing line between Capitol Hill and H St NE?”
I shall defer to the experts who live there!!
And free PoPville swag to anyone who draws up a map (or maps) after we get some sorta consensus. hahaha I know there will be no consensus but we’ll do the best we can. please email them to me at [email protected]

“On September 3rd, at approximately 1:20 p.m., Officers from the First District responded to the 300 block of 13th St SE for a report of a robbery. Officers spoke with an adult female victim who stated that a male suspect ran by her as she was unloading groceries from her vehicle. As the suspect ran by, he pulled her purse from her shoulder and continued running. A witness observed the robbery and chased the suspect for a short distance. The suspect eventually dropped the victim’s property, but was able to flee the area. The suspect is described as a black male, approximately 16-18 years old, wearing a gray t-shirt and blue jeans. Fortunately, the victim was not injured during the incident and her property was returned.
The case is currently being investigated by the First District Detective’s Office. If you have any information that may be of assistance, please contact the 1DDU at (202)299-2025, or the Metropolitan Police Department’s Command Information Center at (202)727-9099.”

From the Mayor’s Office:
“Mayor Bowser today was joined by Events DC, the District’s convention and sports authority, to break ground on the multi-purpose recreational fields that begin the RFK Campus redevelopment plan. Construction will begin in September 2018 and the fields are expected to open for play in March 2019.
“The community has waited a long time to see this land put to good use, and today, we are all proud to get this project started,” said Mayor Bowser. “When these fields are complete, this will be the community space our residents deserve. Here at RFK, Washingtonians will have it all – the amenities of a big city, access to a thriving waterfront, and fantastic outdoor fields and play space.”
The groundbreaking will transform nearly 27 acres of asphalt into three new state-of-the-art artificial turf fields with community amenities. (more…)

Around 11:30pm Jill asked:
“what’s up with the circling helicopter near Potomac Ave Metro?”
“Illegal Firearm Recovered and Arrest Made in Potomac Gardens
Just wanted to take a minute to make everyone aware that last night Officers Branson and Tyson were working as part of our enhanced deployment in the PSA 106 and the Potomac Gardens area. While responding to backup a DC Housing Police Officer looking for a wanted subject, they observed an individual inside Potomac Gardens attempting to stash a handgun. After a brief foot chase, Officers Branson and Tyson stopped the individual without incident and recovered a loaded Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm handgun from their person. Our officers are working hard to take illegal firearms off your neighborhood streets, so I wanted to take a moment to share this success with everyone. Have a great day!”
