About 3 million people visit the Taj Mahal every year. This blog was viewed about 25,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 3 days for that many people to see it.


In 2010, there were 36 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 92 posts. There were 30 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 10mb. That’s about 3 pictures per month.

The busiest day of the year was March 24th with 555 views. The most popular post that day was Welcome to Ward 5, Nightclub Center of DC.

Where did they come from?

One thought on “2010 in review

  1. And we hank you for providing this invaluable service! This blog is one of the ways that I find out about the RI Station development, about what Councilman Harry Thomas supports (and gratefully, sometimes through his own words) and about various developments in the neighborhood. This and a few of the Brookland blogs.

    I guess this Blog, though, takes Rhode Island and begins to conceive of as a semi-cohesive corridor, which makes sense to me–many of us after all use RI Ave as an arterial everyday, and it is the dominant face of our larger neighborhood for us. A “face”, a slice of the city, ripe for beautification, rehabilitation, and revitalization since many of the original building facades were so darned beautifully crafted originally.

    I say, let us dare, along with our urban planners and elected representatives, to imagine a RI Avenue with beautiful art deco-era style street lights to match the facades, thoughtful green-scaping (with the help of Casey Trees folks now moving to Brookland, perhaps?) and thriving small businesses and restaurants. And with infill developments as thoughtful as EYA’s in Hyattsville, with walkability as a goal.

    This blog helps provide normal Rhode Island neighbors another place to get information, and occasionally have a voice. Thank you!
