Ghost Town

GM took the shot above on Tuesday at 3 pm. There was hardly and soul, car, bike, or whatever in sight. It’s truly eerie, although it is also encouraging to see that everyone is taking this seriously.

It wasn’t until GM got back home that he realized that the photo was taken in almost the exact same spot as this startling shot from 1959:

Nearly the same barren scene, yet obviously for starkly different reasons.

WMATA Withdraws Proposal to Degrade Georgetown Bus Service

While you might not be riding the bus much these days, once this is over you’ll be happy to know that WMATA has decided not to significantly degrade bus service through Georgetown as it had previously proposed.

The agency announced that it will vote today to move ahead with a raft of bus service cuts and changes. But they will only minimally affect Georgetown. Specifically, the D6, 30N and 30S routes will lose some late night service. But that’s much less than what the agency originally proposed, which included eliminating the G2 route in Georgetown, cutting all 30N and 30S service and ending the D1 and D5.

Frankly, the agency is looking down the barrel of a fiscal emergency right now. And absent a massive federal bailout, it will likely have to revisit cuts in the future. But for now bus service in Georgetown is mostly safe. Hopefully we can all get back to them as soon as it’s safe.

Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • GM would normally do a fake news item on April 1 and link to this photo. He doesn’t have it in him to fake people out right now, but it’s still funny to see that photo.
  • As GM inferred yesterday, it looks like Brooks Brothers is closing for good on M St.
