Ed. Note: They forgot the ‘end’ in North.

“Dear PoPville,

Went by the new “Trellis House” apartment building (Sherman Ave & Barry Place) this morning and saw Bozzuto had put out a bunch of signs, so I looked it up.

“We live where the iconic meets the worldly and style is supported by substance. Find us at the corner of Sherman Avenue and Barry Place, in the heart of the historic and dynamic North Shaw neighborhood.”

North Shaw?? (more…)

Thanks to Nita for sending word about Napoli Pasta Bar, great news for Park View/Pleasant Plains/Columbia Heights!!

“We are excited to recognize Napoli Pasta Bar, which opened in March of this year. The place is a real win for Sherman Ave., and the kitchen delivers serious and authentic Neapolitan fare. The neighborhood-friendly, laid back atmosphere makes for a fine pairing with the wonderfully prepared dishes.

For those not familiar with the accolade:

Been getting a lot of queries like this one from Ryan:

“I noticed the other night that they’re completely digging up the parking lot on Sherman. Howard has re-zoned a number of their properties along Sherman and I’m wondering if anyone knows whether they’re building here as well?”

And Brian notes: “This is is the lot where they’d park their beat-up Howard police cruisers.”

A reader reports from Georgia and Girard Street, NW around 8am though not clear when the shots fired actually occurred:

“5 cop cars. Street taped off, including a business across Georgia.”

Looks like at least 11 shell markings. Another reader reports:

“I heard about a dozen rounds fired overnight on the 700 block of Gresham Place. It’s currently closed as MPD is investigating.”

From an email:

“Bodymass Gym opened its doors just over 2 years ago in the Courthouse neighborhood of Arlington. We have an amazing group of members who have helped us grow rapidly and we are proud to announce the opening of our first DC location at the corner of Georgia Ave and Harvard in NW DC. We are excited be part of the up and coming Park View neighborhood and bring high quality training to an area that deserves more fitness offerings.

Bodymass is not like your average gym that only offers cookie-cutter, over-crowded group exercise classes. (more…)
