It was time this weekend to catch up on photos for a bunch of locations, including the most aged batch of them all, the views of the ballpark
's northern footprint along N Street
, which haven't been updated since September, so you can now have your fill of photographs of imposing parking garages. The curbs and historic streetlamps are now in, and N Street has been paved from South Capitol to Half, and it looks like the paving east to First isn't far behind. So even though the half-shadow half-sunlight conditions weren't the best to work with, I took full updates of the First
, and Van
intersections along N, all of which you can see here
One thing that really struck me today for the first time is just how wide First Street is becoming, as you can see in this batch of northward-looking photos
. I also saw that all the businesses on the west side of First south of M have now vacated--as you can see above
, it's odd to see those old about-to-be-demolished buildings with sparkly new sidewalks and streetlamps in front of them.
For those of you brave enough to try, here's all the photos from the past two days
on one page. (Thank heavens I've done a lot of work over the past year or so to automate the update process as much as possible.) Don't forget to click on the
