Forest Hills residents and neighbors are so accomplished, and so varied in their interests and passions, that we feel these neighbor profiles and essays were among the highlights of Forest Hills Connection’s year:
Listed in order of their appearance:
MPD Lieutenant Victor Braschnewitz, now retired, was a familiar figure in the neighborhood as the commander of our police service area. He writes about his experiences growing up in DC.
