First, Thanks and good report Tom.
Second to WVNan.
All the houses are on a major thoroughfare, Georgia Ave, which is noisy due to ambulances, police sirens, a lot of traffic etc. It is a major road in and out of Maryland (being less than a mile north). So we are a weekly brake for residents.
When we first came, drugs were dealt on a side street next to us. Between our presence and increased police cruising by to check on us, that dealing subsided. In addition we also don’t hesitate to call police if we see suspicious activity.
So we rarely get negative comments from the residents. The church has been sold and while we think we know what will happen, we won’t discuss until it does.
I hope this helps your curiousity.
We believe we are good neighbors to residences and the Medical Center.
Hey, that is excellent news. I thought maybe the neighbors were probably protective toward Walter Reed. But the fact that your presence has stopped some of the decline of the neighborhood is just an added bonus for them. You guys are the best. Thank you for the 1,000th time.
