The Post reports that 304 13th Street NW went for over $200,000, but there is no 304 13th Street NW - I think this is supposed to be 3004 13th Street NW, which is pictured here. Glad to see that house got sold, and I hope it gets fixed up soon.
Apparently Mayor Fenty and the city's director of the Department of Housing and Community Development made an announcement on Thursday in front of the same house - I'm sad I missed him. Here's what he said:
"These are neighborhood nuisances and they've been the site of numerous problems. What councilmember, what citizen activist, what great media person hasn't heard the tales of nuisance properties like one behind me [at 3004 13th Street, NW] causing problems with everything from rodent infestation to plain old visual blight?"
