15563 U St Nw Washington, DC 20009 - Adams Morgan
Pedestrians crossing U Street along as they walk along Florida (to the east) are faced with an incredibly dangerous crossing. Even with a walk sign cars zoom over the crosswalk as they turn right off of 18t street on to U street eastbound.
2401-2419 16th St Nw Washington D.C., DC 20009, USA - Meridian Hill
There are a MIILLION mosquitos and other swarms of insects everywhere throughout Meridian Hill Park. Every grassy area has them. You can't walk through the park without walking in a cloud of insects. There are too many untreated stagnant pools of water as well that are fertile breeding grounds for them. Pls ask the Park and Recreation authority to treat this Park so we can enjoy walking through. I was there at 7pm last evening - it was still perfectly light outside - and fled from the swarms. Thanks.
Florida At 18th Street NW, Washington, DC - Adams Morgan
Too short traffic light (10 seconds) when trying to cross 18th Street from Florida, heading East. The light stops eastbound traffic to allow for westbound traffic to have a green arrow to turn left onto 18th, but the too short light causes lengthy back-up on a major road.
2031 Florida Ave. Nw Washington, USA - Kalorama
When crossing Florida Ave. NW south down Connecticut Ave. NW at the northwest corner of the intersection (right next to Russia House) the walk signal is extremely short and the first 5-6 seconds of this signal are often taken up by cars that are continuing to drive across the intersection going southwest on Florida Ave. This is not a few drivers running a red light. It happens almost every time. The problem is that the time between the yellow/red light and the walk signal is too short. I've seen many walkers who have seen a walk signal start to walk out into the street only to be nearly mowed down by cars that are still crossing the intersection. These cars need to be given a yellow/red light at least 5 seconds earlier so that there are no more cars coming when pedestrians start to walk.
1678-1680 Kalorama Rd Nw Washington, DC 20009, USA - Adams Morgan
There is an abandoned trailer at the corner of Kalorama and 17th Street NW, with expired registration and no residential parking permit. It has been there for more than two years, occupying a public parking space by the Harris Teeter supermarket. Many thanks for towing this trailer and freeing up this parking space.
Calvert St. And Cliffbourne St. Washington, dc - Adams Morgan
There is a crosswalk here (no stop sign) but rarely do cars ever stop for pedestrians at this dangerous and highly used intersection. Even city buses blow by pedestrians waiting to cross and even sit straddling the cross walk waiting for the light to change. The visibility pulling out from Cliffbourne street is terrible. A 3-way stop sign would make this intersection a lot safer.
Florida Ave & Champlain St . Nw Washington, DC - Adams Morgan
New "no parking" sign on the Southeast side of Florida Ave. NW, across from Champlain is confusing. Can you or can't you park there? Tickets are given out only by certain parking officials. Please put out clear signage.
2412 17th Street Northwest Washington, DC 20009, USA - Adams Morgan
The driver came from behind three cars at the red light at Euclid & 15th streets NW to drive straight through the very red light and nearly hit 2 cars and a bicycle then intentionally stopped at the green light at 16th & Euclid just to be mean after he saw me take a picture of his car. This person is an extremely reckless driver and needs to be removed from the road.
1732 V St Nw Washington, DC - US Congressional District DC98
Cars coming from V St. and turning left or right on Florida can't see around the corner, so they pull out into the intersection. This leads to cars whipping down Florida Ave. to either honk, swerve into the other lane, crash into the car, or all 3 of the above! It's a dangerous intersection, and it could be solved by switching V st. to the opposite direction.
1700 Euclid St Nw Washington, DC - Adams Morgan
I live in Adams Morgan and I love it but what I don't love is the parking. I barely drive my car but when I do, depending on the time and day of the week I am frustrated by the parking situation. I have a joke that is actually sad. I have a curfew on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, must be home by 8pm if I'm driving. Why? Because there is no parking available. The signs say zone 1 parking but others can park up to 2 hrs most of the day until late evening. But then I walk over to Columbia Heights and they have signs on one side of the street that only allow those with zone 1 parking permits to park there at all times. This is what's needed in Adams Morgan. I don't understand why this hasn't been implemented. Also, if you are wondering why I don't just pay for a monthly parking space, well first off there aren't any available to pay for and if there were it would cost around $200/month which is nuts.
I would like to see an only zone 1 parking at all times in adams morgan. I pay my taxes and parking permit so why do I have to go through this. Most the time I end up parking illegally which results in me having a $30 ticket in my own neighborhood.
1736 Columbia Rd Nw Washington D.C., DC 20009, USA - Adams Morgan
the pedestrian signal on the northeast corner of the intersection of Columbia Rd nw & Ontario Rd nw is not securely mounted. Every few weeks it swivels clockwise so that it can't be seen by pedestrians approaching Ontario Road from the west. Every time the city has fixed this problem over the past 10 (that's ten) years, it recurs within a couple od weeks. I would like to know why the signal can't be permanently secured.
