Featured Community: Brookland

Brookland is like a small town within the big city. Tree-lined streets, yards alive with the sounds of songbirds and the blooms of flowers, and neighbors who know each other are just some of the great things about this community. There's even a "main street" that has shops and places to eat.

Brookland is sometimes called "Little Rome" because of the many Catholic institutions located in or near the neighborhood, including the Catholic University of America, Trinity University, and the Franciscan Monastery.
