  • 2419-2499 14th Street Northwest Washington, District of Columbia - Columbia Heights
    The bike lanes on 14th St NW have been gradually extended from downtown up to north of Columbia Heights, but there is no bike lane on 14th St between Florida Ave NW and Columbia Rd NW. It just inexplicably disappears for about 0.5 miles, and it happens to be on the scariest part of 14th St (at least for cyclists). Cars go up and down that hill at very high speed. The northbound cyclists climb the steep hill at walking speed while cars pass close by on the left at 30+ mph. Cutting over to 11th St (which has a bike lane for this stretch the hill) is not a good solution, and many cyclists aren't aware that 11th St has a lane. Please connect the lanes on 14th between FL Ave and Columbia Rd.
  • 1612 U Street Northwest Washington, District of Columbia - U Street Corridor
    There is a single bike rack in front of Vida Fitness U St, enough for 4-6 bikes. There used to be twice as many racks, and even that wasn't enough. Every day during the AM and PM rushes every single streetsign, parking meter, and lamppost within half a block will have one or more bikes attached. For over a year the gym has been telling people "we're just waiting on the city".

    Both drinking water fountains are turned off or broken, and have been all year. Also, the water sprayer under the big umbrella is also turned off and broken. This playground is directly adjacent to the Parks and Recreation headquarters.
  • 3149 16th St. Nw Washington, District of Columbia - Columbia Heights
    One of the toddler swings has a chain that was repaired with a shoelace. I'm not kidding. In place of a link of steel chain is a shoelace. This is not safe.
  • 2917 13th St Nw Washington, District of Columbia - Columbia Heights
  • 1208 Girard Street Northwest Washington, District of Columbia - Columbia Heights
    Collection missed for entire 1200 block of Girard St NW
  • 1241 Girard St Nw Washington, District of Columbia - Columbia Heights
    A temporary asphalt patch was applied to the concrete sidewalk at least 6 years ago, and it is cracked and bumpy. The asphalt patch needs to be replaced with concrete that matches the rest of the sidewalk.
  • 1339 Girard Street Northwest Washington, District of Columbia - Columbia Heights
    The lot adjacent to the west side of 1339 Girard St NW is overgrown with waist-high weeds, and piles of rotting vegetables and other trash. There is a strong odor coming from the lot. The front of the lot is protected by a tall chain-link fence.
