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.
: 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

: 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."
: 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.
: 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).
: 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)
