A piece commemorating my first apartment on Capitol Hill (12th Street SE at Sladen's Walk, right by Lincoln Park), now 20 years ago! I lived in a first floor apartment on the left side, while my closest DC friends lived in a unit on the right side. Working on this piece brought back memories of all we shared, from meals to laundry quarters, and the tough times through and after 9/11, my apartment being burglarized, job changes, dating dramas, and more.
