Chester Hawkins offersÂ a slice of life from 14th street, the sounds of a walking commute in DC.Â He just took a slow walk home from the office & recorded the journey — it’s a stroll up 14th street from H Street (White House area) up to the hipster neighborhood of Logan Circle — Walked through several protests & counter-protests, then it gets quieter as I get up the street, & kept it recording into the apartment building, elevator, opening door, & being greeted by the happy dog.
