Surveillance Camera Gentrification

Did you read the Washington City Paper lead article two weeks ago on the DC Police Surveillance Cameras?

Blockbustin’ Video! told of how the camera at 14th and Gerard Street was next to a new condo project. What it didn’t capture was how close to the new project it was.

The south side of Gerard is a brand new condo. The north side, where the camera is, looks like government housing. Might the camera be there to keep the two groups separate? Or just to improve the “security” of the condo and keep its price high?

Go by and check it out yourself.
