We recently moved to Hill East and while it’s a generally great area, there is one issue we are wrestling with. Hopkins Public Housing essentially hosts outdoor concerts every Sunday morning with various singers. Following this they hook up the ipod and play music till 8 PM. The music is very loud, and we can clearly hear it inside our brick home. The music can be heard for blocks. On Memorial day, they sang and played music all day after they had their ‘concert’ on Sunday. We’re not objecting to playing music, we just don’t want to hear it in our homes.
Despite numerous neighbors’ efforts to contact 311, the police, council members, and asking them to turn down their music, it never stops. No one seems to care about our complaints. We honestly don’t know what to do at this point. Allowable residential noise levels are 60 decibels which is equivalent to normal conversation, and they are obviously disturbing the peace. (See pdf link on bylaws here.)

Come solve a crime that took place in Takoma Park 130 years ago!
HouseMouse Books and Vintage is excited to announce the debut of Escape the Bookshop II, our new limited-run escape room experience. Escape the Bookshop II is a unique group puzzle game that is based on a real crime that took place in Takoma Park around 130 years ago. It is designed and created by HouseMouse to be played in our atmospheric little bookshop. This is not your typical corporate escape room and makes for a memorable evening out with friends or family!
Bookings are now open for game dates in January through April 2024. The game generally takes place Wednesday through Saturday at 8 PM but special arrangements can be made upon request. It is designed to be played by a group of 3 to 6 people (ages 16+) and lasts for one hour. No prior escape room experience is needed to enjoy the game.
