Last week's post about Columbia Heights plaza and Lamont Park made me think about the lonely tree. You know the one. It's the one tree standing alone at the northern vertex of the triangle shape that is the park. Lamont Park is split in two by a traffic lane for buses and other vehicles. The tree shares the smaller sliver of land with a bus shelter for the H8 Metrobus.
If DC were to ever change Lamont Park (with our suggestions from Friday of course), you'd hope they would include the lonely tree as well as land it's on. Maybe add some grass or another tree or two.
