Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

With a few hours to spare before the year ends, I present to you a Pics-and-Clicks summary of the big moments in Near Southeast/Capitol Riverfront/Navy Yard/Near Capitol Ballpark River Yards (#NeCaBaRY) in 2015.
New Restaurants
I think the pictures speak for themselves in this section.
New Retail
Tingey Street saw the opening of Pacers Running, Hugh & Crye Menswear, and Banfield Pet Hospital.
Completions
The Hampton Inn at 1st and N and the new Trapeze School space at New Jersey and Tingey snuck in under the wire for 2015. (This section will be considerably larger next year.)
At the Ballpark
Nats Park saw the NHL Winter Classic, new food offerings, and the Taylor Swift invasion. (But not the October games many had been expecting.) Plus, there was the announcement that the 2018 MLB All-Star Game will come to Half Street.
Farewell
The "new neighborhood" is now old enough that some establishments are exiting. We said goodbye to Sizzlin' Express and Buzz Bakery, and await the Italian-themed retooling of the Park Tavern. Plus the Hill Country gameday BBQ pop-up at South Capitol and N will be no more, with development now underway in that spot.
Underway
A mere seven development projects (four residential, two hotel, one office) broke ground in 2015, to go with the mere seven development projects already under construction. (Need a map to keep them all straight? You're in luck!)
Coming soon, an equally speedy summary of what's on tap for 2016.

After 2+ years of reading this amazing blog, I finally decided to register to post comments!

Anyway, when did the Unleashed open? I had thought that was 2015...

It's been a fun year. JD, as always, thanks so much for keeping this blog going, and more generally, for your wonderful contribution to the neighborhood. Happy New Year!

What conngs0 said. Several years ago, my wife and I came to the conclusion that the Navy Yard area could be the place where we make home for the duration. Then a friend who lives on Capitol Hill turned us on to your blog. Your continuous stream of tasty and nutritious information has helped turn "could" to "will." Have a happy and healthy new year.

Thanks for another good year in 2015. I'm sure 2016 will be quite full of fun as well.
