Washington, DC

Oof, thanks to Whitney for sending Sunday from: “3rd Street and Whittier Streets NW

clearly someone completely smashed into the front of this parked car and drove off. Totaled, no doubt, and also hit the two cars behind it because of the force.”


Thanks to Stephen for sending from Takoma DC:

“took a long time to start blooming and suffered several collapses, but looks super cheery now!

It was a volunteer, as well. One of our puny little sunflowers from the alley must have thrown some seeds over the wall. I’m hoping for more next year!”


Thanks to all who forwarded on to us this message from Alert DC around 12:20pm:

“Alert: Robbery Establishment (4th Street Market) in the 6900 blk of 4th Street NW. Lookout is for (2) two B/M’s. S1: B/M,40 years of age, dark complexion. S2: B/M, 50 years of age,wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and dark glasses, armed with a handgun. L/S northbound on 4th street in a green trash truck.”


From DCPL:

“The Takoma Park Library located at 416 Cedar St. NW will close for a four-month refresh. The last day of service will be Saturday, June 22.

“The District investing more than half-a-billion dollars in creating world-class libraries over the last decade would mean little if we do not invest in the upkeep of our buildings,” said Richard Reyes-Gavilan, executive director of the DC Public Library. “As Takoma celebrates a decade of service since its renovation, this refresh ensures that the building remains a welcoming and inspiring place to visit. The work also allows us to respond to growing and changing community needs.”

The last day to place holds on items to pick up at Takoma Park Library will be Wednesday, June 12. Read More
