425 8th Street will soon house a Bank of America ATM

The crumbling façade of 425 8th Street – a long vacant eyesore on Barracks Row whose last occupant was a retail jewelry store – is getting a face lift and interior renovation.  In about two weeks, it will be the location of a Bank of America ATM.  Perhaps not ideal for residents  anxious for retail on 8th Street, but certainly an improvement.  425 8th is located between the Verizon store and DC – 3 – across the street from the Fire Station.
