Yesterday around 2:30pm a friend was in a hit and run on North Capitol after Michigan and just before the Irving exit going north bound. He was hit by a new white Ranger Rover with Maryland tags. They did not stop.

From a press release:

“Today we announce the formation of a new citizens group: Develop McMillan. Formed in September 2020 to support the development and revitalization of the McMillan Sand Filtration site, this group of citizens from Bloomingdale, Stronghold and other local neighborhoods numbers 300 members strong and grows each day. This decommissioned industrial site has sat vacant, decaying and unused for decades thanks to needless delays.

The McMillan project has been in the works for many years, with input from the community going back as far as 2007. Read More


Julie asks:

“anyone know why north cap is blocked going north from Florida? It’s messing up traffic.”

DC Fire & EMS reported at 10:30am: “Crash with vehicle overturned Michigan Ave & N. Capitol St. #DCsBravest on scene with 2 vehicles involved. No entrapment. Any injuries appear minor.”


“Dear PoPville,

There is a dog being kept in a van on the Unit block of Bryant Street, NE. Cops and animal control responded but because Dog has food and water and “shelter” they won’t do anything. Dog is howling up a storm. Does the community have more ideas to help the pup?”

Update: “The neighbors tried calling around to the area home depots to determine ownership to no avail. The van was moved by 7 am. Unknown on the status of the dog that was being kept inside”
