24/7 Restaurants and Donald Trump Looking to Buy: Is This DC?: Figure 1

DC versus New York City comparisons are made frequently, particularly by transplants from each city. However, two pieces of recent news make it seem like DC is becoming more like its neighbor 220 miles to the north.

First, The Washington Post’s Jonathan O’Connell tweeted that the Downtown Business Improvement District is saying that the new Clyde’s group restaurant (tentatively called The Hamilton) at 14th and F Streets could be open 24 hours a day. 14th and You reported back in December that the Clyde’s group was seeking a “CX (multipurpose) license, which would cover the restaurant, live music venue, and proposed 96 seat outdoor patio” and permission for the inside of the restaurant to be open 24/7. It appears that if demand is strong enough, it will be open around the clock.

Second, earlier today, Housing Complex’s Lydia DePillis was tipped off that Ivanka Trump (Donald’s daughter) was spotted on the General Services Administration’s tour of the Old Post Office for potential bidders, raising eyebrows that the Trump family may be interested in making a play for the building. Somehow, some way, it appears that the Trump family really wants to make their presence felt in DC.
