    Your "hollow" is not very close to Lee Highway, though. At the Mediterranean restaurant in Cherrydale, they have an old photo on the wall of Lee Highway in that vicinity (where Lyon Village shopping center is now). My bike is just across the street from the Lee Highway "hollow" that existed at that time -- essentially where Lee Highway crosses Spout Run (the stream, not the road).

    I also used the Ghosts of DC description, which is a good mile+ away from the other one. If I had to guess, I would consider the Spout Run location more likely. The other one was too close to civilization, while the one farther west would have been truly spooky. It would also be more like a hollow, in that you had to come up out of Rosslyn and then back down into the hollow. By the Key Bridge, even back then, Lee Highway was pretty much just an uphill climb.

    So I'm really excited about this one, because it was a chance find. With Dan having passed and most of his tags painted over, I didn't think I'd be able to share one of his. But this afternoon when I went looking for Frozemon along the C&O, I saw all the new-blood graffiti and was thinking about ol' Dan. As I passed under Key I looked up and saw it! Cool 'Disco' Dan lives on!
    Cool!

    We have two submissions for Dead Man's Hollow. Both have one vote (no I am not counting Mr Happy voting for himself )

    Let's keep this game rolling. Seems to be some ambiguity about where exactly Dead Man's Hollow is - and the peanut gallery isnt crowd sourcing the truth. So points are free. You get a point. And you get a point. And you get a point...... everyone who participated in this round gets a point.

    Next: Dwight W. Watson and his tractor

    Quoting the Rosslyn BID History page:

    "Fort Myer Drive

    A quiet, daytime picture of Fort Myer Drive, also known as "Pork Chop Row." This neighborhood in Rosslyn was notorious for gambling, drinking, and other vices."

    Who knew I live in such a wretched hive of scum and villainy...

    Kitty got 3 likes so I need to move on before Steve O posts his picture for this...

    George Lincoln Rockwell:

    The leader of the American Nazi Party was gunned down at the Dominion Hills Shopping Center while trying to do his laundry.
    George Lincoln Rockwell was shot by former neo-Nazi John Patler from the rooftop of the shopping center when he went out to his car to go and get bleach to clean his clothes with at the laundromat. Patler was arrested half an hour later, after throwing his gun into Four Mile Run nearby, when he was spotted with wet trousers waiting for a bus by a police officer.

    Evidently you people with jobs have plenty of time to play these games. I have pictures of all three, but had actual things to do.

    Watson (my bike is actually in the pond, worth a point, IMO)
