The Morning Metropolitan

Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • The story of the man who once owned much of Georgetown.
  • Georgetown Auto Shop still abandoned 1 year after fire destroyed it. The owner still claims that he wants to bring it back, but as a new neighbor, GM hopes the rumors are true that the owner is just waiting for the right price to sell it to a developer.

    Au contraire, GM. Georgetown Auto is terrific. Helpful service with a smile, and they know their cars. It is the class of field, especially since the Georgetown Exxon changed hands. Don’t blame the owners of the business for shoddy appearance of the building. That’s the landlord. Until they reopen they will come to Gtown, get your car, repair it, and return it with a wash and vacuum. They rebuilt my oldie but goodie.

    I know Bobby and Georgetown Auto definitely have their fans. And if they come back, I’m sure lots of people will be happy. I’m just saying for myself that good auto service is not terribly important to me. I’m not going to complain if they do come back, I’m just saying that if I had my druthers, I’d rather see something else on that corner.

    Maybe an Edible Arrangements?
    I’m with CJ – A good, reputable mechanic is a huge asset to a neighborhood. I’m not a car owner but really hope they come back. Having a business like that would help support other local businesses (coffee shop, lunch spot…).

    If they have to rebuild, it would make a huge difference if the building were along the streetscape and the parking/filling area behind. Not going to happen, I know, but it would make a tremendous difference in how that corner is experienced by pedestrians (and those driving past).

    It’s the Mount Zion United Methodist Church/Female Union Band Cemetery, on Mill Rd (27 & Q, next to Dumbarton house). Sadly, this condition marks a vast improvement over what it was even a couple of years ago.

    Another cemetery in scandalous condition in (near) Georgetown is the Holy Rood cemetery on Wisconsin.
