Washington, DC

“Dear PoPville,

I lost my wallet in NoMA a few weeks ago. I looked all over my house, I retraced my steps, I even checked all the businesses near where I lost it. With no luck, I gave up and started the process of replacing my cards and ID. But today USPS delivered it to me! I guess someone found it on the ground and stuck it in a mailbox. It’s a nice reminder that, even with all the craziness in the world, people are still capable of small acts of kindness.”

11th and Florida Ave, NE

A reader reports Sunday:

“I have lived in NE for 4 years and this is an annual occurrence. The walkway is named after a woman whom was killed a few years ago. I would like to help closing this lane from traffic coming off Florida.”

Ed. Note: I believe the cars are flying off Florida Ave onto 11th. Watch the full video here.

Thanks to Derrick for sending from his 1927 row house in Trinidad:

“I was renovating the back addition of my house, which was a screen porch, eventually converted to a room. We removed the baseboards and came across these. Baseball card from 1964, a 1930s wheat penny, some child’s drawings, newspapers from the 50’s and a pin for Glen Echo Park. Not sure of date.”

If you have a photo of a neat find from your house or place of work please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail.com thanks. Please let me know where/what neighborhood you found it in too. Thanks.
