Monday I noticed with great joy and sadness that work has begun on 143 Rhode Island NW.
I have loved this triangular apartment building for years, long before I moved to DC in 2007. I was upset to see it empty for so long. The first time I saw it was maybe 1999. I asked my friends to stop and they were afraid to stop in such a neighborhood. Was the middle of the day and even in 1999 I am sure we would have been safe to look around the building. Little did I think I would move just two blocks away to it in 2007.
