Callalillie has posted some new pictures to her Officer's Row photoset on Flickr. Over the summer, someone posted an incredibly detailed message in painting-tape on the stone wall along Flushing Street. In part, it reads: "admirals row not death row-- a reprieve, they're innocent!" It'd be a shame to lose these buildings-- they should really be turned into a museum, or at least redeveloped into housing-- that side of Flushing Avenue is totally barren right now. Anyone know what's going on with the redevelopment plans?

If you are interested in learning more about this amazing set of buildings on the edge of the Navy Yard, Callalillie has put together Officer's Row, a website collecting all sorts of information about the history of the row. b
