I lived in the old housing development called Calvert Homes in the early 50's. The site was demolished, and over the years the trees have grown up. Now I hear that they want to saturate the entire area with Housing. (oh enough with the housing developments already!)

I wish they would leave it alone, or just have the few stores planned. If you look at it on a Google aerial map, it looks like an oxygen rich pair of lungs for a very polluted area. Aerial maps are kind of upsetting at times. I am hard pressed to locate some of my old haunts. I'm 65, and I'm still trying to find any reference to Jerry's Foot long Hot Dogs in Bladensburg.
I recall that it was a blue and orange building, and had an overhang for driving up and getting curb service. If anyone recalls the place, please let me know.
