pop-up at 1833 1st Street NW under construction (zoned C-2-A)

See this tweet and pic:

Arggggh! Knowing it is going to happen does not prepare me for seeing it.

and here is what it looked like before the cupola was removed:


  1. this is so sad..especially since it's a row of houses that visually define 1st street was one of a few rows of iconic Bloomingdale cupolas that defined the entire neighborhood. That's what you get when you have a zoning commission that can't act to save it's own cities architectural heritage....because its is so loaded down with pro-developer schmucks.

  2. wow, that really is terrible. First Street used to be so beautiful. It's all about the money. Sigh...
