  Jan. 12, 2020 -- Slivers don't take very long to build. Digging was happening in spring, and now topped out.

Mid-block on L Street SE between South Capitol and Half.
Rendering for DBT Development's 37 L condo project, between Half Street SE and South Capitol.
Oct. 2017 -- ... And the aftermath of the building's demolition, in fall 2017.
April 9, 2005 - Looking east on L Street from South Capitol, back when Nation was still flourishing and there wasn't much else going on.
January 12, 2020 - And the current view, just a wee bit different.  Click to see all available photos of this location.
July 18, 2006 - The view from Half and L in 2006, with the 20 M office building under construction at rear, the Navy Yard Metro station chiller plant at center, and the Empire DC Cab building at the far end.
January 12, 2020 - And the current view, which will change again in the next few years when the chiller plant is replaced with a residential building.  Click to see all available photos of this location.
On Oct. 24, 1977, a fire killed nine men who were in the movie theater on the second floor of what was then the Cinema Follies gay nightclub. Identification of those who died was hampered by the fact that, at that time, many homosexuals did not carry identification in case of police raids or other activity. It was the deadliest fire in DC to that time. I wrote about the fire in 2010.
