Description

DPW/Trash Transfer Station, 880 New Jersey Ave.was used in the 1900s as a trash transfer station, before the DC Department of Public Works turned it into an operations area for heavy trucks and plows. Now it's going to be an apartment building.

The first phase, a 430-unit apartment building at 880 New Jersey called the Park Chelsea, is expected to get underway once some deep infrastructure pipes are moved, a process which began in spring 2012.

When growing up we played football on its grassy field as well as use the exit,which was a hill to sleigh ride and cardboard box ride on in the snow. We used to it The Garbage Yard.
