The above parcel of land, which includes 810, 816 and 820 Potomac Ave. SE, is up for sale, according to the Washington Business Journal. The newspaper’s calling it “Barracks Row,” though it’s clearly south of the freeway.  Yesterday, I wrote a blog post listing eight neighborhood names often used to refer to the general vicinity south of the elevated highway to the Anacostia. I didn’t include “Barracks Row.” Apparently my reporting skills/memory are no match for the imaginations of D.C.’s developers, real estate agents, and property owners.

What can I say? I do my best.
