Photo: What may be my best "Slider" so far, looking north along 1st Street from the Douglass Bridge, from 2006 to 2016. Go slide it yourself to see.
* ORANGE: I mentioned this in the comments late last week, but now time to post officially that the BID has reported that Orangetheory Fitness has been signed as the first retail tenant at the ORE 82 apartment building at New Jersey and I, which is expected to open late this year or early next year.
* CROSSING: Via Commissioner Fascett, ANC 6D is sending a letter to DDOT requesting a review of the pedestrian-crossing-light timing at 4th and M SE, aka the Teeter Intersection. "Twenty-seven seconds is not enough time for pedestrians, including seniors and residents in wheelchairs, to cross a six lane road while dodging two lanes of east-bound turning cars."
* SPRINGSTEEN: Bruuuuuce is back at Nats Park on Sept. 1. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, May 13, at 10 am.
* ALLEN: If you are wanting some face time with Ward 6 councilmember Charles Allen, he is having his Community Office Hours on Friday, May 13, at the Starbucks in the Waterfront Safeway at 4th and M, SW, from 8 to 9:30 am.
* SPOOKY: This has been in my hopper for too many months to ponder, but a reader passed along this link about the end of the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency building/Building 213 at 1st and M SE that included a few photos from inside (as I sob thinking about how I never got my own).
* FITNESS: The BID has announced the schedule of outdoor fitness classes this summer at parks Yards and Canal.
* LEO: Across the way by a few feet, but folks might be interested in the reopening of Leo's Wings N Pizza at 7 N St., SW. "In addition to pizza, wings, pasta, salads, subs, and breakfast items, Korean food will be added to the menu." (SWTLQTC)

CROSSING: Via Commissioner Fascett, ANC 6D is sending a letter to DDOT requesting a review of the pedestrian-crossing-light timing at 4th and M SE, aka the Teeter Intersection. "Twenty-seven seconds is not enough time for pedestrians, including seniors and residents in wheelchairs, to cross a six lane road while dodging two lanes of east-bound turning cars."

They should also look at putting in a left turn signal for northbound traffic. I have been there several times when there is a line of cars going north on 4th that stretches past the Harris Teeter parking garage, several cars coming south on 4th and a stream of people crossing M St. The pedestrians and southbound cars going straight have the right of way meaning that often only a few northbound cars can get through.

That building was as ugly on the inside as it was on the outside. I am sure those employees were thrilled to me.

Tough call re: the light timing at 4th and M. I think that 27 seconds is enough time for folks to cross the street if they are at the intersection at the beginning of the light. The problem may be that the M Street traffic gets the right-of-way for too long, which creates an incentive for people to attempt to cross the street with significantly less than the full 27 seconds remaining on the clock.

The left turn signal for northbound traffic (and perhaps ultimately southbound traffic) is a good idea. Ultimately, when that area is populated, that entire intersection is going to require some adjustments.

Love those Before and After 'sliders'...

The corner of 4th & M by the historic brick wall in front of Harris Teeter is far too narrow with poor visibility. Safety is seriously lacking at this intersection, especially for pedestrians.
