A great video on the local real estate market.

Jesse, while I'm bullish on DC, what do you make of an administration that lets a prostitution hub like this run for years while local neighborhood orgs like the Mt. Vernon Square Neighborhood Org has tried to shut it down...

Fun Fair Video, located at 919 5th Street, continues its illegal operation despite over a decade of DCRA, the BZA, and the courts finding that it is not licensed to operate a sexually-oriented business. It considers itself a video "arcade" where patrons can insert money in a booth to watch xxx video clips. Even worse, neighbors report routinely seeing drug activity and prostitution from the premises and are afraid to walk on their own block. For those of us north of this illegal business, we all know to avoid the area and tell out visitors to do the same. It's time to shut Fun Fair down, NOW.

The Coalition to Shut Down Fun Fair Video, made up of MVSNA, the Downtown Neighborhood Association, and several condo associations will

rally outside Fun Fair on Monday, September 17, at 6pm.
