Washington Air Compressor Rental Co. #eckingtonSANITARY GROCERY COMPANY. 4th Street NE, Eckington DC. #eckingtonIt's actually kind of a lovely day in Eckington. #eckingtonOne of the things I find so incredibly disappointing about transitional neighborhoods. Speculators come in and build the cheapest, ugliest things with no regard for neighborhood fabric. And in many cases, absolutely no regard for the people who have to move their sofas, flatscreen TVs, dining sets, etc., into the place. Shown here, a 7 unit building where the top four units are accessed via a metal exterior staircase that goes more or less from the sidewalk up to the 2nd floor. The designer on this one deserves an award, a swift kick in the ass, AND to have to live in one of the top floor units. (The developer should have to live in the other one.) /end_of_rantHanging out in Eckington for a couple hours this afternoon. #EckingtonYou know something's wrong when traffic suddenly all funnels onto Taylor Street. Arkansas Avenue closed both ways between Taylor and Upshur.
