Pics of my HOOD!

Welcome to my hood! Green arrows UP is always positive. Don't mind the gang war or stray bullets wizzing by your head.

This is the Carnegie Library in Mount Vernon Square, it is now sits empty and is used in-frequently for parties. Homeless and street people sleep out back on top of the air conditioning fans.

This is AV, the italian restaurant, a mere block from my hizzy. It's awesome. The owner made millions by selling so that a greedy developer can build overpriced condos, and limited commercial space. BTW, did I mention my neighborhood is a historic district??????

Damn, I didn't know AV would be closing. That really is a shame.

A friend of mine once told me that AV's improbable location stems from the fact that its environs, until a few years ago a total wasteland, at one time made up a small Little Italy. Thats pretty cool.
