Uncool, so uncool

We buy houses, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

So this guy on New Hampshire Ave., has placed a sign in front of his house advertising his business. As you can see he has set it up so that it looks like it is a regular for sale sign. This can't be legal. Is this kosher?

I don't know. One of the biggest disadvantages to Petworth is its monolothic acreage of housing and more housing. It would benefit the livability and the walkability of the neighborhood if there was more businesses integrated into the neighborhood. More corner stores. Etc. I happened to live within three blocks of one shopping area. But it's rare and I think there should be more. If you are going to get people out of their cars -- and that should be a primary goal of urban planning -- than you need more mixed uses. So I sort of applaud this guy -- even if it isn't legal.
