“I moved into the ‘sketchy’ neighborhood of Petworth three years ago to a row home with two roommates. None of my roommates wanted to go in on a service to mow our lawn (money issues) and I didn’t see the point in buying a lawnmower.

Anyway, I told this to our new neighbors one day after they found me cutting the overgrown grass with hedge clippers, and the next day I come back to see our lawn mowed – free of charge.”

Ed. Note: We hear a lot about crime in certain neighborhoods. This is the other side of the coin. If you have a story/experience from your own mean streets please send a brief description in an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dog)com and include what neighborhood you live in.
