Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

I'm happy with my move to Twitter for much of my "little" linking, but here are a few (somewhat) recent items that still deserve the "hail of bullets" treatment on the blog, especially during a bit of a lull. (But I might have something somewhat cool tomorrow, if the weather holds.)
* From City Paper's Housing Complex blog, a report on some reimagining of the Anacostia Waterfront by middleschoolers as part of the National Building Museum's CityVision program. The Navy Yard, Poplar Point, and Florida Rock were given the treatment, with an underwater library envisioned at the latter, among other notions.
* Urban Turf asked a group of soothsayers to look ahead five years on which "unsung" DC neighborhoods would be attracting homebuyers five years from now. The "Southeast Waterfront" was one of the 'hoods (as once again people make clear that no name yet floated for the area is truly capturing the populace's fancy, which is why I stick with the REAL name ;-) ), and while it will take a while to be "fully realized," the writer reminds readers that Near Southeast has some pretty solid "bones": With "proximity to Capitol Hill, access to Metro and major roads, Nationals Park, a potential streetcar line, a waterfront park that I think will be one of the best in the city and of course the river[,] this neighborhood starts to make a lot of sense as a place to live."
* SWill reports from just across the way about the plans for hip, happenin' shindigs once again this summer at the Capitol Skyline Hotel. "The parties [...] have been named Liquid Lounge and will feature some of the best house music DJs from Washington, DC and beyond. The hotel and Nocturnal Vibe will host their inaugural event on Saturday, June 5th from 2 p.m. - 9 p.m., poolside at the architecturally iconic DC destination."
* With the DC season of Top Chef now having an announced premier date of June 16, it's been confirmed (by DCist) that Nationals Park was the site of one of the challenges (apparently on May 6, according to this tweet). I'm going to LOL if they make guest judge Eric Ripert chow down on nachos, half smokes, two-pound pretzels, or other ballpark haute cuisine.
* And, the subject of filming at Nationals Park reminded me to go see what the latest is on the Reese Witherspoon/Jack Nicholson/Paul Rudd/Owen Wilson/James L. Brooks movie filmed at the park a year ago. It's called How Do You Know, and IMDB says it has a release date of December 17. (Prime Oscar season!)

I wrote that quote for UT. I've never really settled on a name. Can't we all just agree to call it the Navy Yard and call it a day?

Capitol Riverfront might be the worst name I've ever heard. If everyone settles on that name, I'm moving...


JD says: (5/25/10 11:01 AM)
My problem with calling the neighborhood "Navy Yard" is that there is actually a location called The Navy Yard. "There's this new restaurant I want to try in Navy Yard." "In THE Navy Yard?" "No, in the neighborhood next to it."

I'm a fan of the Ballpark District. It's not as catchy as "Wrigleyville" near Chicago's Wrigley Field, but like it or not the baseball stadium is going to be what the neighborhood is most known for.


Steve Brinson says: (5/25/10 1:22 PM)
I like "NATSTOWN"

The saga continues!

My personal preference lies with the Southeast Waterfront, which I think is the best description of where we are located or the Navy Yard, which is well established as a place. Also, it doesn't hurt that the Metro is named after it.

At the end of the day, I just don't think that people want to live in a neighborhood who's name was coined by a marketing department or focus group (See Capitol Riverfront, Natstown, etc).

Then again, I'm the guy that refuses to change from MCI Center and National Airport to Verizon Center and Reagan.


JD says: (5/25/10 3:16 PM)
The neighborhood's official name is Near Southeast; I think that works just fine. :)


JW says: (5/25/10 3:24 PM)
I like SE Waterfront. The focus should be on the waterfront which is where all the notible features of the neighborhood are situated.


Mark says: (5/25/10 3:25 PM)
My two cents: I like (and generally use) either NatsTown or Capitol Riverfront


vahoya says: (5/26/10 10:34 AM)
OK, well clearly there is no consensus, but I DO have the all powerful ORK Poster on my side!

BTW, anyone see the City Paper's comments on the UT article?

Total malarkey...
