Here’s what we were reading last week about neighborhood news in DC. Have neighborhood thoughts? Leave them in the comments!
Columbia Heights – We’re not sure if we’ve been transported to some cartoon netherworld but these photos of Mayor Fenty dancing with a pancake and a few Councilmembers in IHOP uniforms are a hoot! (This was for the opening of the new IHOP in Columbia Heights.) [New Columbia Heights] & [Washington CityPaper: Loose Lips] & [Washington City Paper: Housing Complex]
Downtown – More opinions on what to do with the Franklin School building at 13th and K St NW. [Greater Greater Washington]
NoMa – The new Harris Teeter at Constitution Square (1st and M St NE) opens on Tuesday, December 7 with the ribbon cutting happening at 5:30 pm. Will it give the CityVista Safeway a run for its money? [Harris Teeter corporate website]
Capitol Riverfront – Speaking of Harris Teeter…more signs that the HT at 5th and M St SE is on its way. [JDLand: Ballpark and Beyond]
14th Street NW & H Street NE – We love visiting jazz bar HR-57 but now we’ll have to go east to H Street NE instead of west to 14th Street NW to get our music fix. Why? It’s moving. [14th & You] & [Frozen Tropics]
Logan Circle – It’s time for one of our favorite home tours…the Annual Logan Circle Community Association Holiday House Tour. [GregsListDC]
