The Morning Metropolitan

Water St. by Madame Meow.

Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • Hmmm, it must be the post-election hangover, but there just isn’t much going on today.
  • Well how about this: It’s a little late but apparently Tuesday was the 196th anniversary of Francis Scott Key writing the poem that would eventually become the Star Spangled Banner. Baltimore takes all the credit for it since it happened there, but Key was a highly regarded Georgetown resident. His house stood at 3516 M St. until it was torn down in 1947 for a bridge that would bear his name. Check out more at the fantastic Peabody Room when the Georgetown Library reopens October 18th.
