Well, if you've gotta cut the neighborhood in half...

...you might as well make good use of typically underutilized space. This is the area under the SE/SW freeway that cuts off the greater Navy Yard area (and greater SW) from the rest of 8th Street SE, Barracks Row, and Capitol Hill. I'm not sure how this came to be, but it's a great use of space that ordinarily just becomes parking or a haven for criminals and those who want to stay out of sight.

I was poking back through some old photos on Flickr, and I saw this photo from our self-guided alley tour we did of Capitol Hill awhile back.

Anyone local know how this got installed?
