Vacant Dupont Rowhomes Prompt Complaints From Neighbors — A group of long-vacant properties along 21st St. NW has some people who live nearby upset. Squatters have taken up residence in the buildings, neighbors say, and although an investment group acquired the buildings last year, the company has allowed them to fall into disrepair. “Besides the whole safety implications, it’s kind of an eyesore on the neighborhood,” one neighbor told the City Paper. “You can go three or five blocks in literally any direction–you won’t see anything like that.” [Washington City Paper]
