UT Reader Asks: How is Bladensburg Road?
Capital City Diner (opening today) by wageslaves
In this week’s installment of UrbanTurf Reader Asks, a reader curious about the Bladensburg Road corridor in Trinidad asks readers for their thoughts on the area.
I saw your article on Trinidad the other week, and the many comments from neighborhood residents. I wanted to ask about the Bladensburg Road corridor that marks the southeast boundary of Trinidad. I have heard a lot about the Jimmy Valentine's bar as well as the Capital City Diner which is opening soon, and a friend looking for condos told me about The Renee, a new condo building over there. And of course, H Street and the new trolley are just a few blocks away, but despite all that, the street (not the neighborhood itself) still feels vacant and sketchy, especially at night. What do your readers think?
Post your thoughts in the comments section. If you would like to submit a question for UrbanTurf Reader Asks, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
