The city helped, too, by dropping the speed limit, adding in more stoplights and shrinking the road down to just two lanes where there used to be six.

14th and Q in 2013

The northeast corner of 14th and Q has forever changed…..it is now impossible to walk to our office in the next block without thinking about and smelling the amazing bread that is now baked on this corner.   We are not talking Whole Foods $4.00 loaf bread…..but rather Marie Antoinette "let them eat cake" hand-crafted by the baker of the royal court bread.
