City Paper is not for tourists
In: Foggy Bottom
Residents are opposing: The American Pharmaceutical Association’s plan for a new annex
Because: With the annex attached, the original building would be “not much more than a pimple.”
We say: There’s gotta be a pharmaceutical for that.
Residents are opposing: A proposed residential and commercial megadevelopment
Because: It’ll make the area look like downtown Bethesda.
We say: Stick with the historic abandoned-Hechinger’s look.
In: Dupont Circle
Residents are opposing: MCCXXIII’s plan to add 300 seats under the trade name “Spank”
Because: Nightclubs = more trash and less parking.
We say: Who’s been a naughty NIMBY?
Residents are opposing: Illegal quick-money signs and cell-phone posters
Because: They don’t make D.C. beautiful.
We say: But they make us rich! Call my cell for info!
In: North Cleveland Park/Forest Hills
Residents are opposing: The Washington Home and Hospice of Washington’s proposed parking-lot expansion
Because: Fifty trees would have to be cleared out.
We say: Hug a living tree, not comatose Uncle Sid. —Dave Nuttycombe
