Cleveland Park (August 9, 2019)
Continuing our discovery of Cleveland Park, we passed by three identical small apartment buildings on a side street. We have become enamored with the smaller buildings that we come across during our walks. They appear to provide a communal lifestyle not offered by larger buildings. It’s easier to know your neighbors when there are four or five other residents in the building, rather than hundreds.
Down on Connecticut Avenue we passed by the iconic Uptown movie theater.
The art deco style Uptown opened in 1936 and has the largest movie screen in Washington DC, apart from the Smithsonian IMAX theaters. It has hosted many Hollywood premieres over the years, including the World premiere of Stanley Kubrick’s, 2001: A Space Odyssey in 1968.
Over recent years, the District has been renovating and building numerous libraries. The Cleveland Park library is one of the most recent, opening in 2018.
Walking along Macomb Street, we were enchanted by this fairy tale house.
We finished the day’s walk, dropping in our dear friend Catherine, who lives in the neighborhood. It was very pleasant, sitting on her back deck, resting weary legs and catching up with the latest gossip.
