Stepping Stair Rail

This is the alley beside Lux Lounge, a nightclub that opened a couple of years ago near the Convention Center. I like the juxtaposition between the refurbished front of the club and the old brick signage. Just down the street in the distance is the DC Eagle, one of the city's oldest gay bars. Though the Eagle (or some incarnation of it) has been in the neighborhood since some time in the 60s, it's only been over the last 3 years or so that the area has really come alive, with popular nightspots, cafes, and shops. Now I can't take full credit for this, but I moved into a quiet little neighborhood, and *boom* suddenly it's the cool place to be.

  1. Nice contrast here. I clicked on it, and the details on the brick wall come alive. So, you single-handedly brought the neighborhood to life? Got any ideas about fixing the debt limit? Your nation needs you.
