property: Confederate Statue in Old Town - 08/26/13 08:30 AM

One of the busiest intersections in Old Town Alexandria occurs where Prince St. crosses Washington St. This intersection is dominated by a memorial of the U.S. Civil War. Over the years, and on several occasions, drivers have crashed their vehicles into the statue. As a result some folks filed petitions to have the memorial moved. But the statue has not moved and remains a fixture in Alexandria.
 
I doubt the statue ever will be moved because of the historical significance of the statue’s location. In 1861, at the place where the statue now stands, the sons and fathers, brothers … (5 comments)

property: I was quoted in the Post - 08/26/13 08:24 AM
I was contacted over the weekend by several friends, associates and strangers because a reporter quoted me as an expert in the Washington Post.
For those who aren’t from the Washington Metropolitan area, the Washington Post is a widely circulated paper in Washington DC, suburban Maryland and Northern Virginia, and across the country.  If you think you’ve heard of the Washington Post, you probably have. The Post is not the most famous paper in the United States. (The USA Today or New York Times perhaps have that honor.) But the Washington Post is probably one of the most famous papers in … (0 comments)

property: Near the Metro and Affordable: Hunting Creek Club - 08/21/13 07:29 AM
Just south of Alexandria, near the intersection of Richmond Highway and Huntington Avenue, stands a sixteen story brown brick tower called the Hunting Creek Club. The tower shares the neighborhood with a few other high-rises, the most notable being Montebello at the rear on Mount Eagle.

 
Built in 1972, the architectural appeal of the building is in that
awkward stage that occurs long after “new” but just before “vintage”. This is of course a personal opinion, and others may disagree, but driving past the building on many occasions, it never struck me as particularly beautiful. But then, my work … (2 comments)

property: Adams Center — medical museum in Old Town Alexandria - 08/13/13 07:42 AM
One of the many intriguing things about life in Alexandria is Old Town‘s assortment of highly specialized trade associations. One of these is the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS).

property: Survey Suggests Smoking in Home Chips Away at its Value - 08/08/13 05:51 AM
A survey of Canadian home owners finds that smoking in the home can reduce the home’s value at resale by up to 29 percent. The potential loss on a home could be up to $107,000 on the average home price of $369,000 in Ontario, according to the study sponsored by Pfizer Canada, a pharmaceutical company.
Fifty-six percent of the real estate agents and brokers included in the survey said most buyers are turned off by a home where the home owners have smoked. Twenty-seven percent say that buyers are unwilling to even consider a home in which the home owners … (4 comments)

property: Introduction to Old Town Alexandria - 08/08/13 05:48 AM
Old Town (sometimes called Olde Town, Old Towne or Olde Towne) is in my opinion the heart of the city of Alexandria. As the name implies, Old Town is the oldest part of Alexandria, a port in colonial times. Old Town Alexandria is found along the Potomac, just inside the Woodrow Wilson Bridge and then north toward Reagan National Airport. Old Town is served by the King St. Metro and the King St. trolley. With over 100 restaurants, shops, boutiques, coffee shops, ice cream houses and more, Old Town has both a small town, upscale and touristy feel.

property: Huntington Club - 07/29/13 04:38 AM
In 1966 bills were signed that allowed the creation of the Washington Metro Transit Authority in 1967. In the same year, the Huntington Club, a community of garden-style condos, were built between Huntington Ave. and North Kings Highway. About 15 years later, the Washington Metro and Transit Authority opened its first station in Fairfax County. This station was the Huntington Metro and it brought the Yellow Line to the Huntington Club. The Huntington Club is across the street from brand new condos called the Midtowns.
