What is Columbia Heights Missing?


It's about time I did a new What We're Missing post, but honestly I can't think of anything, so I'm putting it out to you: what do you think the neighborhood is missing? Something cool, something fun, something handy?

So far I've thought we're missing a movie theater, a post office, a thrift store, and more. Here's the whole list.

1) A good daycare center with a large capacity and short waiting list.

2) Soon to be a post office.

3) My wife would say a knitting or yarn store.

Good ones. Is there a post office coming in?

A good sports bar

I was thinking that too -- however, Meridian Pint is supposed to open next year, and that could be a good, laid-back neighborhood bar with TVs for watching sports. I hope.

Who needs Ellwood Thompson with all the delays? Give me a Trader Joe's in DCUSA!

I like the diner idea--Julia's in CH is a joke with the early closing.

an indy and/or used book/music store with a cafe - something with the vibe of Newbury Comics in Boston. a vet's office would be nice.

Definitely a bookstore. And a good coffee shop or two or three. Also concur with the idea of a Trader Joe's - that would be amazing!!!!
