One of the nice things about living in Southeast is that people have come to realize that a boarded up building doesn't have to be ugly. This building near Capitol South had a sign out front calling it a community center and even had a security guard trying to stay warm out front. I'm not sure if that means it's just under construction or this part of the building is closed.
Either way, it was nice to see a bit of art before I turned the block and found five DC bicycle cops questioning a group of kids in front of another brick housing complex. Just another lovely holiday weekend in Southeast.
