I've been waiting a loooooong time for this particular set of before-and-afters. With thanks both to Mother Nature for the beautiful day (after a rainout last Thursday) and to the Nationals for indulging me, I now have a set of before-and-afters for the old intersection of Half and O streets, SE. And, as you can see from above, it's a little different.
The intersection died almost exactly two years ago, replaced now by second base and shallow centerfield. I cannot vouch for 1000-percent matches between the old and new angles (I didn't bring a GPS with me to pinpoint my positions, and ground level is now about 15-20 feet below where it was in 2006), but I think it's close enough for you to get the idea. The two shots above are (top) looking north and (bottom) looking west, with the old black Ziegfield's building visible in both "before" shots. But you can see all of the angles (in bigger images) here.
UPDATE: And, since the archive photos are kind of small, here's some larger images of the view from around second base. I'll figure out how to add them into my official ballpark galleries later....

Word has arrived (and EYA has confirmed) that people who snagged reservations for market-rate townhomes at Capitol Quarter are starting to be brought in to sign actual sales contracts. Those with the earliest reservations (which go back to October 2006) are having their contracts written this week, and over the next few months all reservation holders will do likewise. Construction is still expected to start this summer, with some of the early-reservation-people being told to expect delivery of their houses in early 2009, though perhaps a bit sooner.
