If anyone has an ear to the ground in DC it’s Dan Silverman. In fact, the guy has both ears to the ground... even though it's anatomically impossible. You know him as the Prince of Petworth, and we solicited him to identify the secret-est spots in town. How does one man make so many discoveries? Easy — he walks everywhere. 15-20 miles a day sometimes. We got him to hold still long enough to help us find these 13 hidden gems.
Murals on a wall are cool and all, but what about an entire church? At 700 Delaware Ave SW you’ll find a previously white, unassuming church that has been transformed by Atlanta-based artist Alex “Hense” Brewer into something way way cooler. We imagine that if this church were still a place of worship, they’d switch out hymns for Grateful Dead riffs. The purpose of the project was to aid in the transformation of the SW neighborhood into a true arts district.
