    I think this is marvelous, that this structure was turned into some good looking apartments. IT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER BEFORE TO WASTE NOT, WHAT NOT. NEVER WASTE, RESTRUCTURE AND RECYCLE, AND MOST STRUCTURES THAT SEEM “DEAD” CAN BE PUT TO REMARKABLE USE.

    On another note: Your blogs have become more enhanced, do not think people do not take notice. I sure have. Keep up the enterprise and the incentives.

    I moved to DC when the whores and heroin controlled 14th St. and down. Curtains could be seen billowing from broken windows of the Hay-Adams. The gays held the line at 17th. You never traveled below 17th at night. It was a downtrodden district that has blossomed into a true American renaissance city. Unfortunately for me, from arrival to whence I was expelled in 2006, DC and I played a real nasty Freaky Friday-esq swap. I encourage all to visit or spend time in, despite many political bad nicks, the epicenter of the American way of life.
    I remember this building and wondering if it or I, could ever be saved. The area was ‘tough’. More times than I could count, my ex would appear, nets in hand and drag my tore up ass home.
    It’s beautifully quirky and celebrates it’s design challenges. People that live in there are lucky. I don’t like that it is a rental building. As a landlord, tenants can be lots of trouble. If I knew how to hammer a nail or use a wrench, I think it would be a great place to be a building manager.

    I think I knew the guys who built this. They were a gay couple who owned my ex-girlfriend’s apartment building back in 1999. In 2000, they mentioned that they were buying a school in NE and turning into apartments. Wonder if it’s the same place…
