“I hope everyone who lives in this area knows how lucky they are to have such good neighbors.”

“Dear PoPville,

Writing to share a brief story of many good Samaritans I encountered on Sunday while on my bike in upper Brookland/North Michigan Park. I was riding in the neighborhood on my way to College Park when my bike basically broke down thanks to recurring tire issues I’ve been dealing with. I set up on a street corner in the grass trying to fix the problem for about 45 minutes and almost every single person who passed me (at least 7 people) stopped to ask if I was okay and if I needed anything.

Two people in the houses nearby came out to check on me and offer repair help; one man even gave me some old leftover bike stuff he had totally unprompted. An older woman walking her dog offered to drive me and my bike home in her car, which was extremely kind to offer given the pandemic. I was able to grab a ride from a friend to a repair shop but was extremely touched by how friendly everyone in the neighborhood was. I hope everyone who lives in this area knows how lucky they are to have such good neighbors.”
