  1. ??? q and florida is practically in Georgetown. dupont west, at least. is there a relevance to bloomingdale?

  2. map posted. i guess it could be the other intersection though.......

  3. I vote for a community garden. Look at all that southern exposure.

  4. We community crap and low income housing like we need hole in our head...

  5. This is for the Q & Florida intersection near Bloomingdale. The DCMud blog has a posting with more information: It turns out that there are quite a few properties that are part of this 'cluster'. The sites have a ton of potential with the historic fabric of Q Street mostly intact. I think the owner of the vacant parcel on the NW corner of the Florida/North Capitol intersection is also looking for a developer partner - it would be great if a developer stepped forward to take on both.

  6. what the heck is up with that first anonymous commenter? of course this has a lot to do with's right across the street from the southern end of the neighborhood!
