I went on a nice long walk Sunday afternoon, up through Petworth, Brightwood, and 16th St. Heights, and took a bunch of pictures.
First off, I passed the intersection of 14th St. and Park Road in Columbia Heights, and discovered a random pop-up petting zoo right outside the Giant grocery store. There were a lot of little kids having a ball feeding and petting the animals…and a lot of us 20-somethings were pretty excited too! 😛
Once I turned west on Kennedy Street, NW, I saw this cool little storefront for lease on the 500 block. I think Kennedy St. NW has a ton of potential (and yes, I know I’m going to get screamed at for being a “gentrifier”–which is funny, because I’ve been priced out of the vast majority of DC myself!), and seeing that “for lease” sign made my crazy dream of opening a coffee shop pop up again…those front windows would be an awesome spot to sit with some cushions or something…
Farther west on Kennedy Street are a ton of adorable little bungalows. If I had any desire to live in a free-standing house (eww, outside maintenance and yard work!), I would totally want one of these!
