I was happy to see an officer on foot as well as a patrol car on this
block this morning.
I walk to the metro every morning and am amazed at how blazen the drug
dealing is on this specific block. It's an open air drug market. Even

A continued police presence in this area and any other efforts to clean
it up would be very positive for the neighborhood.
