    Hi Gary, just found this site and you seem like someone who knows a lot about the east end neighborhood.  I'm considering investing in Geerwood and want to learn a little bit about the history and current strengths/concerns of the community... want to be an ethical neighbor... probably a broad question, but where should I look for information? are there organizations or neighborhood associations bringing people together? Anything troubling other than the Alston Avenue expansion? Long-term residents who would be willing to share their experiences?  Someone advocating for school kids?  thanks for any suggestions, Eileen
