Terrific morning walk in southwest DC. This part of the District hasn't gotten as much attention as the others, but you can feel a new energy there. At the same time, quiet walks under a canopy of shade are still possible.
Here’s some photos from our walk.
The Wharf will totally transform the waterfront from a vapid set of cluttered buildings to a set of residential and mixed use right along the waterfront. Phase One is sprinting to an October Grand Opening, followed by the start of Phase II
The Fish Market will remain.
DC United's new stadium is scheduled to open in summer of 2018. A cozy fit with 20,000 seats.
Wish someone would write a history of ferry boats and steamers in the DMV.
This set of houses on Fourth Street totally blew me away. Known as Wheat Row, they are four attached brick houses built as a unit.
Get this. They were built in 1794. The NRHP nomination form says they are probably the first speculative housing erected after Washington was chosen as the seat of government.
Wheat Row seems to be overshadowed by the nearby Thomas Law house. I had never heard of it!
