8th at L, Looking Northeast (see more)

If I were in control of this demolition, I'd have started by punching through right in front of the mouth of the dinosaur on the south end, but that's just me.
I've started an expanded photo archive that isn't too extensive right now but eventually will include before-and-afters of most every vantage point that this building is visible from--as I've said before, I'm not sure people will realize how much this building dominates the neighborhood until it's gone. I can't wait to not see it. And I'll certainly be continuing to document its demise.
For those not following along, once this building is gone Forest City will remake this block (known as the Yards's Parcel A) by creating a temporary public park, along with a new home for the trapeze school and a parking lot.

On another subject, if anyone who operates on higher resolutions wants to test out my (beta!!!) wider home page, feel free:

link

The design and layout change somewhat for screen widths above 1100px and then above 1400px. (Drag the width of your browser window down-down-down and up-up-up to watch it change.)

Note that sometimes when following links you may end up on the "normal" home page again.

Be aware I may muck with it from time to time and break it while trying out other things. But a little more content on display and a little less background is nice when visiting on a big monitor (like I do!).

Thanks!

We did appreciate the $30 parking at the Spook Building for Nats games in 2013 what with the lot south of N Street having gone to $35. With the cheaper alternative gone, we broke down and bought Lot C passes this year. It's great for those of us with mobility issues. So in a sense, we're sad to see the building go, but there's just no role for it to play in the new world of SE, so we look forward to a more sightly (that's the opposite of "unsightly", isn't it?) and in-character incarnation for the place! Job well done, now off with you!

The Spooky parking lot is not gone for good! A slightly smaller incarnation of it should be back next year, concentrated on the southwest portion of the block, closest to the ballpark. See here:

Thank you! I had not seen that. I knew the Trapeze School was moving into that block and that some green space was coming. This provides a much more complete (and exciting) picture!

By the way, after years of only reading, let me now pen (or is it key?) a major league tip of the hat for all your astonishing work here. Your now legendary site has been a wondrous gift to everyone with an interest in the near-SE neighborhood, Nats-related and otherwise. Much admired and much appreciated!

Thank you, that's so nice!
