I've written a whole bunch of times in the past few years about how Trapeze School New York's DC location would be moving from its current home on 4th between Tingey and Water to the southeast corner of the old NGA site, aka Spooky Park. But given the number of folks I've heard from in the past few days asking about the construction underway at New Jersey and Tingey, I figured I'd better do an illustrated version.
(Though, to be fair, it did not occur to me--because I never, you know, asked--that there would be a far more substantial structure than the tent that the school has been operating out of since early 2010.)
