For the second year in a row, QVNA is hosting a comprehensive leaf clean up in the neighborhood. Crews began removing leaves from streets and sidewalks on December 4 and will continue through December 15. This helps to keep our neighborhood clean through the Winter months and into the Spring. The clean up is scheduled for all blocks that have a significant amount of leaves on the ground, but if your block is missed and it has a lot of leaves to remove, let us know by emailing info@QVNA.org and we will try to include it!

    Hungry Pigeon serves comfort plates with a cheffy twist
    It can sometimes take a few chapters in a chef's career before he can build the restaurant of his dreams. In the case of the Hungry Pigeon, it is a pair of veteran chefs who are responsible for the irrepressibly quirky, handcrafted character that has made this hybrid cafe-resto-bar such a lovable, all-day fixture on Fabric Row.

The leaves in Queen Village are almost all to the ground as Fall ends and Winter begins. We are excited to bring comprehensive leaf clean up to the neighborhood for the second year in a row. Over the next several weeks, we will be working to remove leaves from streets and sidewalks. This helps to keep our neighborhood clean through the Winter months and into the Spring. If we miss your street and it has a lot of leaves to remove, let us know by emailing info@qvna.org and we will try to get to it! Check out these before and after photos of Catharine Street.
