The Southwest Freeway now says there's a ballpark in our midst, so it must be true! (And of course the Bike Route signs
started telling us this last week.)
Other news of the morning:
* The March issue of Washingtonian
(not yet available online, but now on newsstands) has two articles of possible interest. One is an overview of the ballpark
itself. The other is called "Ballpark Living: Can the Nationals Stadium Do For an Up-and-Coming Waterfront Neighborhood What the Verizon Center did for Downtown DC?", in which yours truly gets a mention. It's mainly an overview of the neighborhood's offerings now and down the road, most of which should be no surprise to anyone visiting here on a regular basis. UPDATE
, 2/26: The article on the ballpark is now available online
, though the other one isn't there yet.
* Speaking of magazines with special ballpark offerings, I mentioned On Site magazine
last week--I'm told it's available this week (bundled with the current issue of the Washington Business Journal) at CVS, Borders, and Barnes & Noble.
* In both of these magazines, there's an updated rendering of the Monument's 340-unit residential building slated to be finished by the end of 2009 on the northeast corner of Half and N, just across from the ballpark's Center Field Gate. Monument was kind enough to pass it along, and I've added it to my Monument Half Street
page (scroll down past the 55 M stuff).
And, be sure to catch my new photos from inside the ballpark (both inside
) if you haven't seen them.
