It was a beautiful, albeit ridiculously hot day for a stroll through the neighborhood. This post is all over the place, so get ready.
Honestly, this building at the corner of Good Hope and 15th would not have been one of Keller Williams "Preferred Properties" even last year. Love that it is now. (I think that there is already a contract on it)
This is what the building was planned to become.
Good ol' Drake's, looking from Good Hope Road. Word from Drake himself is that the restaurant is still coming, and that a new cursive "Anacostia" sign should adorn the front of the building soon.
This is what the old sign looked like. I think the new one will be an exact replica. Should be pretty cool lookin'.

This is one of my favorite houses in the neighborhood. It reminds me of New Orleans.
Remember how this playground wasn't finished during the whole HGTV weekend? Well, it's up now.
Yep, this is a sign from 4 years ago. You can add littering to the list of laws Marion Barry has broken.
Remember the Carver Theater building? Turns out they built a sweet giant glass skylight on top.
