Wednesday: ANC 2F Meets
The monthly meeting of Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 2F is Wednesday, Dec. 1, at 7 pm at the Washington Plaza Hotel at 10 Thomas Circle NW. ANC 2F serves the Logan Circle area.
Of note is the ANC’s new role in public education. From ANC 2F: “The Community Forum portion of the ANC 2F meeting this month will consist of a joint meeting with the Logan Circle Community Association, dedicated to the D.C. Public Schools in our area. With the newly created Education Committee of ANC 2F and a similarly proposed one of LCCA, a determined effort is initiated to improve the quality and suitability of our public schools.”
How Many Foreign Countries Have You Visited?
This week’s Borderstan Reader Poll question is How many foreign countries have you visited? Residents of Dupont-Logan-U Street are, not surprisingly, an amazingly well-traveled bunch. Check out the results so far; the poll will be up through Sunday. The poll is always on the landing page, right nav bar.
Local Media Celebs: Who Makes How Much
Over at the Washingtonian, the news celebs on the list are not from the local-local (Borderstan area) media, but the list with estimations of who makes what at major news outlets, including national ones, is pretty interesting. Have to admit that the starting salary of $70,000 for a Washington Post reporter seems surprisingly high.
Pre-Order Your Christmas Tree from Ross School
The annual Holiday Tree Sale sponsored by the Ross School PTA is coming up — the first three weekends in December. Check out the prices; you can even pre-order your tree. Ross Elementary is located on the 1700 block of R Street NW.
Report from PSA 305 Meeting
The U Street Neighborhood Association has details from the most recent meeting of Police Service Area (PSA) 305. PSA 305 includes much of the U Street area. They’ve got crime stats, too (what do they show?). Remember that Borderstan also analyzes crime stats each month for an area of U Street centered around 12th and U NW. See Monday’s post, U Street Area: Burglaries, Auto Crimes Up YOY.
ANC 2B Met Wednesday Night
Tom Hay is working on a story about Wednesday night’s meeting of Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 2B. Yes, we’ll have details on what’s happening with Hank’s Oyster Bar. Look for it in the Politics & Government section.
Yep, we know neighborhoods are important. Here’s an interesting piece from the Sustainable Cities Collective on how neighborhoods and regions/metro areas may be more important than the city unit.
What DC Blocks Have More Crime?
From dcist: “The District of Columbia Crime Policy Institute released an intriguing brief this morning which claims that a small number of Census blocks in the District account for a large amount of the city’s crime.” Check out the map — it shows the numbers of crimes for each block in the entire city. Yes, we have some blocks in the area with higher than average numbers of crime. We’re betting a fair number of them are smash-and-grabs from cars.
