Since January, 2003
            
 Page Through from Before to After

Five years ago this weekend, with nary a thought about what I might be getting myself into, I went and took some photos of some neighborhood near my house that I'd heard might be undergoing some changes. Then I came home and put them on my web site. And just like that, here we are. Thanks to everyone who's come by over the years, and I hope you'll continue to check in--especially during the next few months, as Near Southeast hits the big time. It should be quite an interesting ride, and I'm glad I stumbled into it.
PS: In the past I've posted my now-annual State of the Hood in conjunction with the anniversary, but time has been short of late. I hope to get to it this week.

JD--Your passion far exceeds even me. You provide a marvelous service to many individuals. Your work is a must see every single day. How you find the time--is beyond me. I can't thank you enough. May five more years--still be in your sight--if you feel its necessary. What a GREAT JOB AND SERVICE you provide to many in the DC Area.

Happy Birthday! I have to say that this is my favorite website. I visit just about every day and have been for a few years now. I am guessing that I may have found this corner of the web near its beginning. Anyway, I know that I will enjoy visiting your website for the next few years if you decide to keep it going.

I think that what is going on in this part of the city is very exciting. This service that you provide is a great pick-me-up. Checking for the latest news in this area is something that I always look forward to. It will certainly be fun roaming around some of these public spaces as they come online.

Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do.

Congratulations on five years. Your services have been greatly appreciated from all over and outside of "Near Southeast." I don't doubt you will keep up the great work.

Dear JD:

Thank you very much for showing how the neighborhood of Near Southeast has been changing over the past few years, especially with the construction of Nationals Park. I know that some critics still say that this development would have happened anyway without the new stadium, but I doubt it. You have provided an invaluable service to your community and the entire Washington area.

Sincerely,

Eddie Cunningham
