Club 125 at Roosevelt Center

with 4 comments

December 24

Two Greenbelters George Boyce and Eva Fallon are turning the abandoned dry-cleaning store in Roosevelt Center into a community clubhouse—Club 125. On Christmas Eve, I visited the club and took photos of them cleaning up the place.

The former dry-cleaning store is attached to the Greenbelt Theater and adjacent to the Greenbelt Co-op. Its address is 125 Centerway, thus the name of the new club. The original owners of Greenbelt Cleaners and Tailors sold the business after more than 40 years. The new owners could not make a profit and decided to walk away. The store has been empty since April 2012, and George Boyce and his wife Eva Fallon took over the lease on December 1, 2012.

With contributions from the City of Greenbelt, the City of Greenbelt Observatory was dedicated in 2009. Every two weeks on Saturday nights, the Astronomical Society of Greenbelt holds star parties at the observatory.

The observatory is by Northway Fields and is connected by an unpaved road to Ridge Road.
