Oh Watergate residents. In today's privileged people complaining about ridiculous things story, we give you this: Watergate residents are petitioning the National Park Service to cut down trees along the Potomac. Because the trees ruin their views from their condos. And decrease their property values. And they live in the Watergate, don't you know.
The response? Harriet Tregoning, a D.C. planning director and member of the National Capital Planning Commission, told the Georgetown Dish, "If every time someone’s view is obstructed, we cut trees down, it would be devastating to the city."
