Since January, 2003
            
 (a random before-and-after moment)
November 8, 2004
June 25, 2009
5th at L, Looking West-Southwest (see more)

My focus is now zeroing in on a very targeted area in my world, so I am going to be pulling back from full-sized posts here for the foreseeable future. I may still pop up in the comments, and may find a moment or two to pipe up for whatever reason on Twitter, but for now my time is best spent elsewhere. Continued thanks to the "erstwhile" JDLand commenters for keeping the chatter up in my absence.
But at least before I go I can post links to the news of Dacha coming to Dock 79, and that maybe a bowling alley will go into some of the retail space in the Jair Lynch residential/retail project above the Half Street Hole just north of Nats Park. And a reader reports this morning that steel beams have arrived at the NAB HQ site at South Capitol and M, so work might be starting there.
And thanks to everyone for your patience and good thoughts in these past months.

I, too, am sending my best wishes and thoughts to Mr. and Mrs. JD Land during this difficult and testing time.


walt says: (3/9/17 9:36 AM)
On a happier note, I am excited for a bowling alley. Now if we could just get a few pool tables too, I'd be thrilled!


JES says: (3/9/17 10:35 AM)
@walt, someone on twitter speculated that it might be Punch Bowl Social ( link which is looking for space in DC. Their website even speculates a 2018 DC opening, though no location has actually been announced. If it's them, then we'll definitely get some pool tables. Even Lucky Strike has a pool table section of their space, so regardless, hopefully we'll get some!

Neighbors:

The Anacostia Riverkeeper organization will be hosting a clean-up of the mighty Anacostia River on April 8 from 9 - 12 PM at Anacostia Park. I've volunteered with a couple of river clean-up events in the past and this is an excellent opportunity to help give back and improve the health of this great river. If you are interested in volunteering, please RSVP at info@

There will also be coffee and doughnuts for volunteers.

Love your blog on the Navy Yard and bummed to see you taking a hiatus from these wonderful stories and pics. My thoughts are with you and Mr. JDLand!

I am a regular reader of the blog. I both live and work in the neighborhood. I have never before submitted a comment, but I wanted to write to offer my condolences on your loss of your wonderful husband.

(I assume there will be one here before long as well, but not quite yet)


MalS says: (3/16/17 8:39 AM)
Oh JD, there is so much sorrow in JDLand and beyond. You and your family are in all our thoughts. Mr. JDLand was an editor among editors and a man among men. He will be missed so badly.


jg says: (3/16/17 8:48 AM)
Deepest condolences, JD.


jdc says: (3/16/17 9:17 AM)
Such a touching FB post, JD.


AUshutterbug says: (3/16/17 9:32 AM)
So sorry to hear about your husband. Deepest condolences. You're in my thoughts and prayers.


stacycloyd says: (3/16/17 9:39 AM)
JD, I'm so very sorry for your loss and that of your friends and family.

In Bill's memory and your honor, I've donated to link and link in the hopes that more people experience a career like his and fewer experience the Stupidest Thing Ever. I hope that others in JDLand will consider something similar. If there are other ways we can honor him and support you, I hope you will let us know eventually, and that you take all the time you need to do whatever feels right.


knavyard says: (3/16/17 10:01 AM)
My deepest condolences.


nairobs says: (3/16/17 10:35 AM)

Your lovely tribute brought tears to my eyes. I am so sorry to hear of your loss, and send my deepest condolences to you and your family.

So very sorry to read this sad news, JD. Beautiful FB tribute. My heartfelt condolences.
