3632 Georgia Ave, NW
Ed. Note: Rejoice textdoc et al, after a long and bloody neighborhood boundary battle I’m ceding back the 3600 of Georgia Ave to Park View. I haven’t anymore fight left in me and at this point I don’t want to confuse folks. So there you have it, I surrender. I surrender.
Thanks to Dan for solving the mystery at the (new/old) Marrakech Moroccan Restaurant space. Not sure what happened to Marrakech but it looks like mr. braxton Bar&Kitchen is taking over the space: (more…)
Update from Ward 4 Council Member Brandon Todd: “According to MPD this is an apparent suicide not homicide.”

Thanks to Jes for sending the above on Friday:
“Not sure what’s going on at the Moroccan place but some layers have been peeled back. I think it’s still going to be the Moroccan place, but they gutted the inside too.”
It appears to be a banana?!?!?

I have a dilemma that I’m hoping to get the community’s feedback on: there is a huge rat problem on the 800 block of Upshur St. NW (front and back) largely due to the activities of one of the residents, an elderly woman who leaves cat food on her front porch and pigeon feed in her back yard. I’ve seen rats scurry up to the porch at all times of the day for the cat food, and in the evening–once the pigeons have left for the day–they eat the remaining bird feed. It’s become so bad that they’ve actually burrowed in both the front and back–I’ve seen entire families come-up from under the sidewalk. (more…)

Following is a letter sent to multiple government agencies:
“I am a DC Ward 4 Resident who is alarmed at the onslaught of Free2Move cars parked on Petworth’s streets. At Gallatin and 9th Sts. NW last night, there were Free2Move cars parked on every single corner of this intersection!
On my block, a Free2Move car (plate R-38355) has been parked for FIVE DAYS. Then another Free2Move car showed up last night on my block (plate R-38432).
Every. Single. Household. On. My. Block. Owns. At. Least. One. Car.
You know what that means? (more…)
