2473 Pennsylvania Ave Nw Washington, DC 20037 - West End
There is a group of indigent individuals who have set up semi-permanent homes in this park. Among other things, they are often seen relieving themselves on the adjacent building. Something needs to be done as it is a beautiful park and should be able to be enjoyed by the residents of the West End, not just a home for the indigent. Especially with so many shelters in the city.
Cars seem to think 15th St. NW is a superhighway. It is extremely dangerous for pedestrians as vehciles are always speeding up to catch the next green light. Please put in speed cameras or huge speed bumps to slow the hazardous speeders down. Please enforse the speed laws and pedestrian rights.
So happy that the pools are open, but on Monday there was no place to put the bikes. Every possible metal structure, for including handicapped rails, parking meters, tree boxes was taken for blocks around. I pity the person who needs the rails.
Pedestrian/Bike Tunnel Under Intersection Of Canal & Foxhall Roads washington , dc - Downtown
the lights in the pedestrian/bike tunnel underneath the split at foxhall & canal roads NW have been out since early spring. that tunnel is creepy to begin with, but without lights it's even worse - especially if you are biking, b/c your eyes don't have a chance to adjust. the tunnel is generally wet from the canal as well, so not having lighting in there increases the chance of slips/falls. this situation is dangerous and needs to be fixed ASAP.
1726 Newton Street Northwest Washington, DC 20010, USA - Mount Pleasant
This part of the alley floods now that they raised the sidewalk and kids from Bancroft have to walk through it. It will turn onto a sheet of ice on cold days and is hazardous. It is also doing damage to two properties.
2401-2419 16th St Nw Washington D.C., DC 20009, USA - Meridian Hill
There are a MIILLION mosquitos and other swarms of insects everywhere throughout Meridian Hill Park. Every grassy area has them. You can't walk through the park without walking in a cloud of insects. There are too many untreated stagnant pools of water as well that are fertile breeding grounds for them. Pls ask the Park and Recreation authority to treat this Park so we can enjoy walking through. I was there at 7pm last evening - it was still perfectly light outside - and fled from the swarms. Thanks.
Pavement in 18th Street NW (DC) between K and M street is in very bad shape. Thousands of bikes use this route daily to go north from business downtown towards other locations, and are specially in danger because the state of the pavement in the street road. An urgent re-pavement or partial fixing is needed.
I walk through this intersection on the eastern side of Connecticut every day to get to and from work. Without fail, 3+ cars will run the red light signal for the left turn onto Porter from Connecticut, and we pedestrians will get the right of way but they are still blazing through to catch the next traffic light. One time a police officer was stopped at the intersection when this happened, but he did nothing(!). I AM FED UP! I want DC police to ticket these drivers until they start respecting the red light - and pedestrian safety. Even better would be to setup a traffic camera that could catch them.
The garage in the rear of this home has not been visited by the owner in years. Not only is it a magnet for trash and dumping, it houses the majority of our rampant alley rat population. It needs to be excessively baited and cleared-out. I am asking DPW & DOH to get involved and cite the owner - Jim Middleton - until the problem is resolved.
