2010 Year in Review

This past year was a busy year for the neighborhood and the blog. The blog published 317 postings, migrated to a new domain and WordPress layout, and increased page view traffic by more than 40%. On occasion our postings made a small but immediate difference as a treebox hazard in Chinatown that had existed for years was fixed soon after we finally ranted about it. We also put forth our best efforts to provide a platform for meaningful informed discussion of the ANC6C01 election this fall.

The neighborhood survived Snowmageddon until it became Snowverkill, saw Fourth Street Reconfiguration completed, and received two Capital Bikeshare stations in DDOT’s initial rollout. We unfortunately lost the unofficial mayor of downtown, Miles Groves, far too soon but it was befitting to see the Cosmopolitan Condominium honor his memory outside their front door.

Without further adieu here’s the listing of highlights of the past year:
