In case you've already grown tired of the ballpark photos I posted on Monday showing the eastern
sides of Nationals Park, I've now updated the South Capitol Street
images, too. (The northern views will have to wait until the reconstruction of N Street eases.) The main Ballpark Exterior Photo Gallery
is now in pretty good shape after a short span of neglect (but as I said the other day, I think I needed the break).
A few other items of note: The BP Amoco station on the northeast corner of South Capitol and N
has fences up around it--I can't believe no one let me know! It's owned by Monument Realty, and I haven't heard about any near-term plans for the site. This leaves only one gas station in Near Southeast--the Exxon way over at 11th and M. There used to be three gas stations on South Capitol, now there aren't any. (And I've lost yet another source for my Gas Prices page
Also, new fences have gone up around the 1015 Half Street site
, taking up one lane on K Street and on Half Street. Some exterior work was done to the DC Foreign Car building, but the little building is still there. For now.
I hope to get updated photos of 70/100 I
and the pile of rubble that used to be old Capper Seniors
within the next week. There's just too much activity to document these days--I've got to break it up into manageable pieces....
