  1. Natalie - great article. I find it fascinating how newcomers to the neighborhood (including some of our ANC's - not that they don't work hard, because they do) have no clue (or interest) in our neighborhood's cultural history. I believe this is part of the reason why there is such a disproportionate representation at the neighborhood meetings. These are the same meetings that are slowly changing the mold of our neighborhood and I think it's high time that change was a bit more communal and less aristocratic.

    My goal is to change that this year (at least with my block). Would love to pick your brain on some issues soon!
