Sorry for the lack of posts lately, travel and busy times in blog-land. Here's a few things happening in the neighborhood lately.
--Watch out for a package thief on the 700 block of Harvard Street NW (and probably elsewhere).
--The Mayor's Office of Community Relations did a Fix-It in the neighborhood yesterday, where they walk around and fix or note various problems - graffiti, trash, alleys that need to be cleaned, broken sidewalks, etc. They went to the 700 block of Columbia Rd NW, 1000 Block of Irving St NW, 3100 block of Sherman Ave NW, 600 Block of Gresham St NW, the 1800 Block of Columbia Rd NW and a few other spots outside the neighborhood. Good to see them getting around the hood, and here are photos from the last Fix-Its. As always, you can report these kind of issues and request bulk trash pickup, new garbage cans, etc at the city's online Service Request Center, src.dc.gov.
--There's an opening reception today at the Nevin Kelly Gallery in the Highland Park building at 14th and Irving for artist Wesley Wheeler. It's from 6-9 pm and the gallery is at 1400 Irving St NW, suite 132.
