Abandoned House Watch - 1334 Irving
In this latest installment of Abandoned House Watch, I look at 1334 Irving Street NW, which has boarded-up windows and wasn't shoveled during the blizzard. I looked it up, and it's owned by the DC Housing Authority. I guess they took it over from some delinquent landlord, and the building isn't on either of the city's vacant property lists.
They haven't done much with it, however -- here's how it looked in 2005, from DCHA's Flickr account.
Kind of a shame to see this house sitting empty. I'll email Jim Graham and see what's happening. At the least, the city could sell it for a fair amount of money.
