2nd (East) at K, Looking West-Northwest (see more)

I'm still eyeing a couple more days of (mostly) blog-free living, but a few items should probably be mentioned before the weekend, and so that you don't think I'm never coming back. First, the calendar:
* On Monday at 6:30 pm, the Zoning Commission will take up the Housing Authority's new request for another time extension to the zoning order that requires construction of the Capper Community Center. DCHA had asked for a two-year extension last year, but was only granted one year, and made clear at that time that they didn't foresee having the money to start the center in that shorter time frame, and that they'd be back to ask for another extension. And now they are.
* Speaking of the community center, there's now a big sign on its footprint (at Fifth and L) touting that the second phase of Capitol Quarter's townhouses is being funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. But you knew that already.
* Monday at 7 pm is the monthly ANC 6D meeting. I was hoping the agenda would be out before I posted this, but alas, no. Check back here or on their web site to see what scintillating topics will be up for discussion. (UPDATE: the agenda is now out, and there's nothing really major on it, other than a public space permit for the street work for Phase 2 of Capitol Quarter.)
* On Tuesday, July 13, the Capitol Hill Group Ministry is having its "All-Star Party Night" at Nationals Park, offering the chance to take batting practice, throw pitches in the bullpen, tour the locker room, meet Teddy, and more. Tickets are $55 per person and $15 for children under 12, with proceeds going to CHGM's programs for homeless and low-income families.
And a few other items:
* Today's WBJ reports that a third piece of "public" art is coming to Nationals Park; this time it will be 30 "stainless steel-domed forms which will accurately follow the theoretical model of the trajectory of a curving fast-ball pitch," which will be hung early next year on the exterior of the eastern garage. The steel spheres with cutout "laces," each seven feet in diameter, will feature programmable LED lights; the piece will cost about $950,000. As for the other two pieces of public art already at the stadium (the bronze statues in the Center Field Plaza and the "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" mobile near the First Base Gate), I'll quote WBJ's Michael Neibauer: "The first two pieces of public art at the stadium were, to be kind, not well-received at their unveiling in April 2009. The works were selected by arts professionals and D.C. residents, according to the arts commission, but some wonder: Did anyone ask the fans?"
* A reader reports that the Anacostia Boathouse at 11th and O, in between the 11th Street Bridges spans, has been demolished, which was expected because of the footprint of the new bridges. Haven't seen for myself yet to confirm.
* And I haven't felt the earth shift on its axis yet, so I assume the Little Red Building's exterior is still standing, although interior demolition has been going on all week.

Oh it's true--the boathouse is no more. They finished demolishing the remaining structure yesterday. All that remains is cleaning up the pieces.

On a happier note, the new boathouse (although a temporary structure)is in full operation! There's a regatta Saturday if anyone wants to check it out. Best viewing may be from the Anacostia Park.

MJM says: (7/9/10 4:27 PM)
The LRB is becoming a hollow shell - you can check out the price of a 6-back of beer priced at $4.99, smokes for under $5/pack and the Redskins pitiful 2003 schedule/result on the interior wall - inflation stinks.

@ Evan - can you rent kayaks there - if so how much?

Evan says: (7/12/10 4:49 PM)
@MJM sorry, no kayak rentals. Not sure if it's in the plans. I'm just a rower in the boat, so I'm out of the loop on the big decisions.

We do have the occasional learn to row or learn to paddle fun days for kids and families. Anybody can come down and get out on the river.

Jim says: (7/14/10 4:43 PM)
JD, a random question: was there a stabbing near the dog park across from Subway and Five Guys last week? Someone in my buildign mentioned it,b ut I didn't see it on your crime map. Thanks.

JD says: (7/14/10 4:45 PM)
Hi Jim--I didn't hear anything about one, and, like you said, it hasn't been on the Crime Report list that comes from the city, but neither of those mean it didn't happen. Anyone else know anything?


JT says: (7/14/10 9:55 PM)
I heard something about an armed robbery with a knife, not an actual stabbing.

I don't have any details, though, or know if it's true.

MJM says: (7/15/10 8:43 AM)
Wow - rumors spread. There was a knive robbery around K St (that was on the crime report a few weeks ago) but def not the dog park (as I was in the dog park that night - now the cops did ask us if we saw some kids run by). If it had been in the dog park that gossip would have spread like wildfire if that happend.
