ARLnow Weekend Discussion

The week started with a bang, literally.

The demolition of the former Rosslyn Holiday Inn hotel tower on Sunday, with photos and video from ARLnow staff photographer Jay Westcott, was far and away our most-read story of the week.

If you’re looking for a unique angle on the implosion, check out Rosslyn resident (and Axios co-founder) Mike Allen’s view from his condo, in item #8 of this Axios AM newsletter.
