David Brown was “born and reared in Washington DC.”  He recounts fond memories of a city where “people spoke to each other. Men gave the ladies a tip of the brim.

Mr. Brown has enjoyed living in Brookland for many years. “This is a neighborhood where everybody knows everybody. . . When I moved in, people had a picnic for you.
