DOES SEMINARY PLAZA WANT YOUR BUSINESS?

  For as long as I can remember, there has always been a security guard posted at the southeast sidewalk of Seminary Plaza, diagonal from the stairs leading to the Alexandria Professional Building. Park in the Shopping Center and go to a doctor's appointment, even if you intend to fill a prescription at the drugstore or patronize other retailers afterwards, and most likely your car will have been towed by the time you return. Not exactly customer friendly...and the lot is NEVER full.
     Walk a bit further north and you will encounter signage prohibiting cart removal on the outermost sides of the railings separating the Magruder's portion of the sidewalk from the rest. The most recent, handwritten addition adjacent to CVS reads as follows:

Designers are mixing new and old in this year’s DC Design House to give the spacious home warmth and character. For instance, Sharon Kleinman of Transitions in Potomac, MD, http://www.4transitions.com, designed a custom bench for Space 11, the Master Bedroom. “I use modern pieces such as the custom bench with acrylic base and combine it with an antique black lacquer wedding chest,” says Kleinman, who is thrilled to be able to use her work as an interior designer to support such a wonderful cause.
