On 16th St in Washington, someone decided to spread the Valentine’s Day love, literally. All the “One Way” signs up and down this main artery through the city now say “One Love” instead.

Isn’t that precious.

DC just has so much love to give. Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all.

It’s a great sentiment, though I’d hate to be the DDOT employee who has to scrape the stickers off!

Hey, that’s right in my hood!

With the passing of a shy centenarian, some worthy DC institutions will certainly remember his generosity.

Richard A. Herman lived in the Watergate for more than 40 years and was a longtime patron of the arts, but the shy railroad heir was virtually unknown in Washington social circles for much of his long life. Until this week. 
Family Matters of Greater Washington is set to hold a splashy news conference Wednesday at the National Press Club to announce that Herman, who died in November at 100, left the organization 60 percent of his vast estate — $28 million, which the group says is one of the largest gifts ever to a local social service organization. 
And the Kennedy Center said Tuesday that Herman left $15 million to the National Symphony Orchestra and the Washington National Opera — the largest bequest in the institution’s history. (via Philanthropist Richard A. Herman leaves fortune to local charity, symphony, opera - The Washington Post)

While it is somewhat sad that this man died with little family around him (primarily because he outlived many relatives), the generosity without a need for public glorification is refreshing.

    “DC/MD/VA Residents: It is very cold; with wind chills, it feels between 7-10 degrees. If you see a homeless person sleeping or just cold with nowhere to go, please take note of the cross streets and what type of clothes they are wearing, and call 1-800-535-7252. The Community Partnership for the Prevention of Homelessness will pick them up and transport them to a free shelter. Help a stranger in need and share this info!”

    It could very easily be you.

Washington D.C. on Saturday night of the Inaugural Weekend. You can see the National Mall and even follow the parade route.

There’s an astronaut. On Tumblr. And he’s tumbling. _From space_.
Thanks to Leah Jones

So cool.

    This list from DCist hits the highlights — I’d be quick to add Red Derby and include a nod to the now closed Asylum in sad remembrance of one of the greatest/dirtiest basement bars in all of DC.

    Any others to add to the list?

DC folks, an old colleague and good mate of mine has been missing for approximately a week, he was recently hospitalised and is on a strict medicine regiment; So please reblog, share, get the word out as best you can.

I’m hoping the power of the internets will help get Jay home safe and sound.

    Anonymous said: Where's Gallaudet University!!?? Gallaudet's an huge part of DC, only less than ten blocks away from the infamous Union Station.. :)

    It’s an essential part of the city. If that hasn’t been made clear, I apologize.

This map I made shows the accessibility of the Metro. Each circle has a 1/2 mile diameter and centered about the points of entry to Metro Stations - they represent a 5 minute walking distance (1/4 mile) to each station. Clearly, there are a lot of holes and “access deserts,” the largest of which includes the greater Capitol Hill neighborhood (which is one of DC’s oldest and most dense neighborhoods). Further, this is a map focused on the core of the historically planned city of Washington, the access deserts only get worse as you zoom out to the entirety of the District and includes areas of the city that are most economically and socially depressed.
There is also another layer of information here that is often overlooked in evaluating transit access. Not only do these gaps, holes, and deserts make the livability of a city suppressed for residents who live outside of access areas, but this lack of access also makes the knowing, understanding, and therefore ownership of a city much more difficult for all those who live there.
