Wikipedia Description: Edgewood (Washington, D.C.)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Edgewood is a neighborhood in Northeast Washington, D.C. Edgewood is bounded by Monroe Street NE to the north, Rhode Island Avenue NE to the south, Glenwood Cemetery to the west, and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority's Red Line train tracks to the east. The eastern boundary originates with the establishment of the former Metropolitan Branch of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in 1873, creating the physical barrier which today separates Edgewood from Brookland to the east. Edgewood is in Ward 5.

2020 photos: The year is too new to have anything to report. Here's hoping honesty and integrity wins for a change this November.
Partially Reviewed: Rough draft. I've gone through these pictures once, removing the worst ones, some duplication, etc. I usually take sequences of 4 or 5 pictures at a time and there are lots of near duplicates. I'll be doing a final review later which will cull the pictures down some. To be honest though, I'm way behind on doing final reviews.
