The spot I’m standing on is where the old DC convention center used to be. Soon, it will look a lot like it does across the street, but in the meantime, the city has built a fancy parking lot to help fund the huge construction project that will begin in about 3-4 years. There are these strange billboard style ‘art installations’ that run along the 10th street sidewalk that cuts through the middle of the lot. When I first heard about them, I thought they’d be kind of cool, but now that I see them, I’m not so sure. The best part is the supernaturally green astroturf that lines the sidewalk. I tried to recline and stick a blade between my teeth, but it didn’t work.
