      If someone can give me the exact address of the building I will invite the
      owner to the next landlord roundtable meeting. I'm not driving right now;
      otherwise, I would visit the location to get it.

      Thanks Jen. I'll look into that building and forward the information to
      DCRA as well.

      Thank you for passing along this information. I know the Brookland
      area has been having trouble with a group of male teenagers robbing
      people at gunpoint, so it really makes me wonder if they're related.

      I don't know the exact address of the warehouse, but it's in the
      2600 block of Reed St NE, between Rhode Island Ave and Evarts St.
      It's directly behind Calvary Christian Academy. I think it may have
      once been owned by the DC govt (thought I saw an old govt sign), but
      it now has a huge sign on the side facing the metro tracks
      advertising it "for lease" and giving the number for Douglas
      Development. Even though it's supposedly for lease, I haven't seen
      anything happen to it. And the fence surrounding it is woefully
      inadequate, so it keeps getting pulled down. Most of the windows
      have been broken, and there's a ton of graffiti on the side facing
      the metro tracks.

      Jen
