What brings people to Forest Hills Connection? The tools we and other websites use to track visits give us some clues. Sometimes we can see the web search terms that send visitors here.
Most often, people are looking for answers about now-closed local businesses: “what happened to Best Buy in Tenleytown,” “why did Soapstone Market close?” Or they want information about new businesses moving in: “Sugar Fox DC,” “Uptown Market Van Ness,” “what will the new Wegmans have on Wisconsin Ave.?”
Another common search is about rent increases: “what is the legal limit to raise rent in DC?”
Some search terms are not as common: “kissing the Stanley Cup.”
But every spring without fail, someone asks “is the fawn in my yard abandoned?”
And September usually brings visitors looking for information about paw paws, a mango cousin that’s native to the area. They land on Seth Morris’s 2015 piece on foraging local fruits and nuts. Here’s another place to learn about paw paws and try one for yourself: Casey Trees and the DPR are hosting a paw paw party this Saturday, September 14th at Oxon Run Park in southeast DC.
