I visited the residential neighborhood 700 block of S street, around the corner of the busy 1700 block of 7th street NW. I went there to see if there was anybody who knew anything about the changes within this surrounding community. Unfortunately, I was unable to find available people. However, I observed the physical characteristics of the 700 block S street houses. The houses compared to the rest of the neighborhood are much more livelier. The row houses surrounding 714 S street NW are painted with pastel and neutral colors such as nude and a faded mint green. The buildings surrounding the 5 row houses look archaic and are deteriorating. Across the street, the buildings are of the same brownish/tannish color. The sides of the brown colored building are filled with graffiti. The houses look newer compared to the rest of the building surrounding that neighborhood.
