Various neighbors on Florida Avenue NW

Notified About

  • North Capital At T St Washington, DC - Bloomingdale
    I walked two blocks to my bus stop (80 bus at North Capital and T St NW/NE) this morning. I had to walk through 2 feet of snow and walk in the street to get around 5 foot snow drifts (from the plows, presumably) just to get there. For the second time this winter, after a heavy snow I had to stand in the middle of the street to wait for the bus. There were 4 of us waiting in the street. An old man actually walked in front of the bus while it was pulling up - luckily the bus driver saw him - but there was no margin of error, and it was pure luck that no one got hurt. Why isn't it standard practice to plow the sidewalks and crosswalks of major streets (like North Capital, Rhode Island, etc.) after a snow storm? After I got off the bus at North Capital and H St, I had to walk literally 20 feet into the road to get around the snow drift the street the plows created. I feel so marginalized as a pedestrian and bus rider, and the grumblings I heard on the bus tell me I'm not alone.
  • 131-199 R St Nw Washington, DC 20001, USA - Bloomingdale
    Pedestrians cross Florida Avenue NW at R with only use of a crosswalk. There is no light or stop sign for the Florida Ave traffic. I often feel unsafe crossing the street because traffic on Florida is so heavy and coming at a quick pace. I think additional traffic safety devices would help tremendously. There is a DPR park on that corner, so kids cross the street often. Additionally, people walk their dogs in the grassy park across the street.
  • 401 Rhode Island Ive. Nw Washington, DC - Ledroit Park
    There is no cross walk on the north side of Rhode Island Ave on Florida Ave. making this an extremely dangerous location to cross while walking to the Shaw Metro Stop or riding the G8 bus toward Farragut Metro as most of us do in the mornings. I have seen many close calls at this crossing location.
  • 100-198 Florida Ave Nw Washington, DC 20001, USA - Bloomingdale
    This heavily used intersection is dangerous. Cars drive fast and don't stop for the significant number of pedestrians crossing the crosswalk.

    2119 2nd Street Nw Washington, DC - Bloomingdale
  • 220 W St Nw washington dc 20001 - Ledroit Park

    This is an alley behind the 200 block of W St, and cars go very fast thinking it’s a street, but it’s an alley. This alley runs from 2nd St to 5th St, between W St and V St.

    Elderly people cross this alley to catch the bus and children play in this alley. In the past people have reported this alley to the city, and the city stated that alleys cant get speed bumps, HOWEVER, and you can see by this picture cars do drive in this alley and because there are no lights they drive very fast.

    Therefore, instead of having such a bureaucracy, lets just install speed bumps for all our safety. We don’t one anyone to die, can you please fix it.

    1934 1st St Ne Washington, DC 20001, USA - Bloomingdale
    I've owned my property at 1936 First Street, NW for 12 years and this year is the worst I've ever seen for rats. The neighbor's yard at 1934 First Street seems to be the epicenter. I've had bait boxes out for months to no effect. Please help!
  • 135 U Street Northwest Washington, DC 20001, USA - Bloomingdale
    The neighbor removed the no parking sign and continues to park vehicle within 25 feet of the street intersection.

  • 135 U Street Northwest Washington, DC 20001, USA - Bloomingdale
    The neighbor at 135 U Street has repeatedly removed the "no parking" sign and continues to park illegally every day for the last year. I don't understand why this has not been taken care of after multiple neighbor complaints!
  • 75 Rhode Island Avenue Nw Washington, District of Columbia - Bloomingdale

    Peds are given 23 seconds to cross - which barely gets you to the cross in front of Rustik Tavern. When pushing your kid in a stroller, this can sometimes leave you stranded.

    30 seconds would be juuuuust riiiiight.
