    I believe that is in Crestwood on Colorado Avenue, less than a block west of 16th St NW. Address is approximately 4870? Colorado Avenue NW.

    Take out the question mark in the house number, and it pulls the house right up.
    Amazing how it is still identical to the photo. Well, a few minor changes, but none
    to the home at all.

    Even looks almost like the same car in the driveway except the old one looks better.

    I think this is on Colorado Ave NW, between 16th and 18th. That is right by Carter Barron. I grew up in that neighborhood.
