Local Briefing: Crash Victim ID'd, Cultivate the City Fall Classes, & Two Local Stabbings

Here's a video (from 2009) that I'm sure Ms. Hall would enjoy 

  Pedestrian Killed on H Street NE Saturday Identified

Many of you already know that a driver in a minivan struck and killed a pedestrian at 10th and H Street NE on Saturday. According to a Washington Post article the driver did remain on the scene. The victim was 62 year old Jewel Lewis Hall. As this post from the Hill is Home reminds us, Ms. Hall might be familiar event to those who did not know her first hand, as she was the force behind the Michael Jackson house. Rest in peace Ms. Hall.

Two Local Stabbings Yesterday

We had two stabbings in the area yesterday, one in the 600 block of 24th Street NE (just south of Benning Road), and the other in the 1200 block of New York Avenue NE (the edge of Ivy City). The stabbing on 24th Street happened shortly before 6 pm, and the one in Ivy City about 11 pm. I don't have any information on the status of the victims and no lookout information was provided for either incident.

I remember chatting with you about living on 8th street NE - how you raised your children in a house across the street - how you were never going to leave your current home. You were not only the matriarch of your family, you were the matriarch of our block, and you made everyone feel welcome. You will be so missed.
