  3. Hello, I have a master bedroom available in the Van Ness neighborhood of NW DC, just a 20 minute walk north of Woodley Park. It is only 3 stops away from Bethesda. The room is huge in a spacious apartment, and the room comes with your own walk in closet and bathroom. The rest of the apartment is very large, with a modern kitchen. The neighborhood is safe and lovely, close to everything on the red line. The apartment building has a gym, doorman, and sun deck, is 3 blocks from the metro and 2 from stores and grocery shopping. There's also a great farmers market on weekends! One of the other roommates is works on the Hill. The other is in grad school, both are young/mid twenties females. They are great (social, active, healthy, etc. ) and it is a great space, I hate to leave it! It's also a month to month lease. Rent is 1250/mo including utilities. I will leave a desk, but probably not much more furniture. I'd be happy to show you the place after Thanksgiving, this week is just crazy. Move in as soon as Dec 1 or by Jan 1. Let me know if you'd like to take a look! Email westcoastbaby89@hotmail.com
  4. Silver Spring townhouse, near Metro

    I apologize for the repost - just opened an account and it won't let me edit, anyway! Hello all potential roommates! We have a room opening up in our Silver Spring townhouse in early July (start date is flexible). Our attached townhouse is in a great location - just yards from the DC border on the MD side, so all the perks of living near the district BUT you still get national representatives. We're located about a 5 minute walk to the Silver Spring metro station on the Red Line, 5 minutes to the nearest grocery store, 10-15 minutes from downtown Silver Spring. There are also plenty of bus stops around the block to get you anywhere you want to go. House details: The available room is 10 ft by 13 ft on the second floor with two windows, one of which overlooks the courtyard with container garden. The bathroom is shared with 2 female roommates on the 2nd floor (the 4th is in the basement). For the most part the house is fully furnished except the available bedroom but we can always work to accommodate items. Parking is available as well as access to a small but well maintained exercise room at the complex. Roommate details: We are an eclectic group of all female roommates. Among the three of us, we have pretty much one of everything: a cook, a gardener, a swing dancer a video gamer, an astronomer, an Middle Eastern studier, a couple of environmentalists, a couple world travelers, many different political opinions, 3 recent (ish) graduate, 3 workaholics and 3 weekend bar hoppers. We are pretty varied in messiness but none of us are dirty. Clothes/shoes, paperwork, and sometimes dishes can pile up during busy work weeks but it's usually tidied up over the weekend. Other than that, we're not too picky about what we are looking for...someone responsible (can pay bills on time) and able to stand a dirty dish in the sink for longer than an hour (but not more than 8 :-) ), can pick up after themselves and is planning to be in the area for at least a year (duration of the lease). Cat Alert: One of the roommates has a cat which does roam around the house so you must be at least cat tolerant. Unfortunately the cat is rather alpha and we are not able to consider the addition of another cat or dog (small animals like hamsters welcome at your own risk... existing roommates are not responsible for any trauma resulting from the constant sensation of being hunted... :-) Ideally, we would like someone who can submit an application at our complex as soon as possible. Break down of individual bills/month: Rent: ~ $520 Comcast: ~ $20 Electric: ~$20 Water and Gas: ~$20 Renters Insurance: $3 Total ~$585 If you think you are interested in our humble abode, please respond through our craigslist post with a little about yourself here: http://washingtondc....3085689643.html

  6. PLEASE READ THE WHOLE THING AND JOIN IN NEXT FRIDAY 5/4 at 5:15PM!! AND THEN JOIN & INVITE EVERY FACEBOOK FRIEND YOU HAVE IN DC TO THE "MAKE RAJA'S DAY" EVENT! http://www.facebook.com/events/130911680365927/ Today, my coworker and I were walking to get coffee, and we passed a man selling flowers on the sidewalk at the corner of 9th and G NW. Raja told us that he sells flowers every Friday on that particular corner. Since we didn’t have any cash on us, we told him that we would come back next Friday and buy some flowers. Raja then picked out a flower for each of us, and told us we were his new friends. We got some coffee cake when we grabbed our coffee, with the intention of giving it to him to thank him for the flowers. When we tried to give it to him, he refused at first, but he finally accepted it. He then gave us another flower each, because he liked us so much. We reassured him we would be coming back a week later to buy flowers from him. As we walked away, we turned around and saw him approaching a homeless man on the corner and giving him the coffeecake. That’s when we decided to scrape up all of our spare change - $15 – and go buy flowers after work. Angela and I decided that we would brighten someone’s day on the Metro by surprising them with a bouquet. When we went to buy flowers, Raja told us that he liked us so much that he wanted to make us a beautiful bouquet, and he did just that. Be sure to check out the photos on the Facebook event "Make Raja's Day." We got on the Metro, and decided that at every stop, we would go car-by-car until we found someone that looked like they needed flowers. We offered them to one lady, who wouldn’t take them, but almost cried when we told her the story of how Raja was so kind, and how we wanted to pass it along. She said it brightened her day that “there are still kind people out there.” At King Street, we finally found Connie. Connie was on her way to work the evening shift as a Metro employee, and when we approached her with the flowers, and asked if she wanted them, she was shocked and overjoyed. She had had a rough couple of days, and she said that those flowers brightened her day, and that they let her know that things were looking up. Connie said she was going to carry her new bouquet around with her all night at work. You’ve probably seen the video about Caine’s Arcade, and how a bunch of total strangers decided to make his day by flooding him with business. What if we did that for Raja? What if a bunch of complete strangers came together and we bought every last flower he had? What if we took those flowers and we gave them to someone we loved, or a stranger who looks like they need their day brightened up? Maybe we could change someone’s life in some way. After work, come to Raja’s stand between 5:15 – 6:30 on the corner of 9th and G NW. My coworker and I will be going at about 5:15 if anyone wants to join us. Bring whatever spare cash you have- there’s no set prices, so you’ll be able to get something no matter what. Invite all of your friends who live and work in DC, and tell them to do the same. I know it's on a Friday night, and we all want to go have fun, but take 30 minutes and start the weekend off right. Let’s make Raja’s day.
  7. As Washington, D.C., welcomes the return of the Cherry Blossoms, Metro is preparing for large crowds by placing more eight-car trains in service, preparing air conditioning and curtailing weekend track maintenance and rehabilitation work to support the upcoming 2011 National Cherry Blossom Festival, which runs from March 26 to April 10. “Metro will convert five six-car trains to eight-car trains. The cars will remain in service after the festival,” said Richard Sarles, Metro’s General Manager and Chief Executive Officer. “We will add 10 rail cars or 640 more seats to our weekday morning and afternoon peak service starting on March 21, increasing the number of rail cars available for customers from 850 to 860 rail cars. “We will also operate eight-car trains during the weekday, off-peak daytime hours to accommodate the expected crowds and will be prepared to use eight-car trains on the weekends if necessary,” Sarles said. With the National Cherry Blossom Festival approaching, riders should expect very crowded conditions aboard Metrorail trains and at Metrorail stations for the next few weeks and they can plan ahead by purchasing a SmarTrip card or a One-Day Pass before entering the Metrorail system. Each year during the National Cherry Blossom Festival, crowds increase, so commuters may want to build extra time into their daily commutes due to the larger than usual number of people using the Metrorail and Metrobus systems. It may be difficult to board crowded trains and to enter stations such as the Smithsonian and Federal Triangle Metrorail stations during peak periods and on the weekends. During last year’s Cherry Blossom Festival, Metro recorded three of its top five highest weekday ridership days in its 34-year history and it also recorded its fourth highest Saturday ridership day as well. Overall, Metrorail recorded 10,930,795 passenger trips, a 5.7 increase in ridership (595,368 more trips) compared to the same period in 2009 when Metrorail recorded 10,335,427 passenger trips. “In anticipation of large crowds expected to attend the events, we will curtail weekend track maintenance and rehabilitation work during the weekend of March 26- 27, and the weekends of April 2-3 and 9-10,” Sarles said. “We will have personnel available on stand-by in the event we have to respond to an operations issue, and we will conduct track maintenance during late-night weekdays and when the system is closed." Metro preparing its rail car fleet for Cherry Blossom festival and tourist season As the region prepares for an influx of tourists, special events and the start of baseball season, Metro is checking its air conditioning units inside its rail car fleet to ensure service reliability and enhanced customer service. Last month, Metro’s Car Maintenance department launched an initiative called “Operation Cool Breeze,” a program designed to inspect and overhaul the air conditioning units inside the agency’s 1,142 rail car fleet. Under the program, maintenance personnel are cleaning condenser motors, checking auxiliary power units and other key vital components associated with providing air conditioning, and making sure the units are ready when they are turned on at the end of the month. “We hit the ground running in February by checking all the vital components inside every rail car,” said Dave Kubicek, Metro’s Acting Deputy General Manager for Operations. “It has been a monumental task, however our dedicated car maintenance personnel have been working diligently during the last several weeks to help ensure our customers will be comfortable throughout the spring and summer months while riding Metrorail,” he said. Escalator modernization continuing Metro will continue its state-of-good repair work on escalators at the Metro Center, Gallery Pl-Chinatown, Union Station and Foggy Bottom Metrorail stations. Metro will also have technicians available immediately to assist with escalator and elevator issues at the Smithsonian, L’Enfant Plaza, Waterfront, Arlington Cemetery, Capitol South and Metro Center Metrorail stations throughout the Cherry Blossom Festival. Smithsonian Metrorail Station crowding – possible entrance/exit only During the Cherry Blossom Festival, the Smithsonian Metrorail station typically experiences crowded conditions, particularly during the weekends. In the event of crowding, Metro Transit Police may designate either the Independence Ave. or National Mall station entrance as designated exit-only or entry-only to move as many people as possible into and out of the station safely. Metro encourages customers to pay special attention to announcements and to personnel located at the station in the event such a change occurs. Two Metrorail early openings Metro will open one hour early, at 6 a.m., on Saturday, March 26, to help participants get to the starting line for the SunTrust National Marathon. The race begins at 7 a.m. near the Stadium-Armory Metrorail station on the Blue and Orange Lines. Metro will open two hours early, at 5 a.m., on Sunday, April 3, for the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10-mile Race. The race begins at 7 a.m., and will start and finish at 15th St. and Jefferson Drive, S.W. The closest stop is the Smithsonian Metrorail station on the Blue and Orange Lines. Metrobus detours during Cherry Blossom events On Saturday, April 9, Metrobus routes 13F, 13G, 32, 36, 64, P6, S2 and S4 will be detoured for the Sakura Matsuri Japanese Festival and Metrobus routes 5A, 13, 32, 34, 36, 52, 54, 64, 70, 80 P6, S2, S4 and V8 will also be detoured for the National Cherry Blossom Parade. Tips for Riders During the Cherry Blossom season, customers can do their part to help ensure that their trip is pleasant by remembering the following travel tips: • To avoid crowds, visitors should travel during non-rush hour times and if possible, avoid traveling Metrorail at the height of the afternoon peak period, from 4 to 6 p.m. • Regular commuters, especially those who work for the federal government and whose offices are in the vicinity of the Smithsonian Metrorail station, which is the most frequently used station for tourists arriving at the National Mall, are urged to stagger their arrival and departure times for work and use the L’Enfant Plaza, Archives-Navy Memorial, Federal Triangle and Union Station Metrorail stations. • Visitors are encouraged to buy the $9 Metrorail One-Day Pass for multiple trips. The One-Day Pass can be used after 9:30 a.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends. • Visitors should buy a SmarTrip card, which is used to pay the fares on Metrorail and Metrobus, and is the only way to pay for parking at most Metro-operated parking lots. Customers can pay for parking with Discover, Mastercard, Visa, American Express or Japanese Credit Bank credit cards at the Glenmont, Grosvenor-Strathmore, Rockville, Shady Grove, Greenbelt, New Carrollton, Landover, Largo Town Center, Addison Road, Branch Avenue, Suitland, Naylor Road, Anacostia, Huntington, Franconia Springfield, Vienna-Fairfax-GMU, Dunn Loring-Merrifield, and East Falls Church Metrorail stations. Visitors can purchase a SmarTrip card from Metro’s Web site for $25 (with $20 of value on the card) or for $10 at any Metrorail station with a parking facility (with $5 of fare value on the card). SmarTrip cards can hold up to $300 of fare value. • Metrorail riders who pay their fare with a SmarTrip card instead of a paper farecard save 25 cents per trip. Metrobus riders who pay with a SmarTrip card instead of cash save 20 cents per trip. • Regular commuters should allow extra time for travel. All riders are reminded when traveling on Metrorail to please walk into the center of the rail car so that they do not block the rail car doors. • For safety reasons, stand back from the platform edge as trains approach the station.
