What Should Replace The Frame Shop in Georgetown?

This store originally set up shop in 1960.

Let's call this a modern spin on community planning—Patch's version of a charette, a digital drawing board where all ideas are on the table.

Each week we'll present a new vacant building and ask you to tell us what you think would be the best use. Forget what zone it's in, ignore setback regulations, dump lot coverage rules and all the other zoning jargon that puts people most to sleep. If you had your way, what would you like to see there? What would be the best use for the community?

We've written about several shuttered spaces over the past several weeks including , , , and Our readers have suggested replacements ranging from newsstands to coffee shops.

This week, we're turning our attention to The Frame Shop, formerly located at 1725 Wisconsin Ave., NW in North Georgetown. This shop was orginally established in 1960.

What would you like to see replace The Frame Shop? A bank? An art gallery? How about a florist or an independent bookseller?

Let us know in the comments section.

Please, not another bank! Flower or coffee shop would be great.
